Perfect Popcorn

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Bay Laurel

My family has been making this since I can remember. We all make it a little different and of course the toppings are adjusted to preference. I offically vote myself as the best popcorn popper in the family and I truely doubt there will be much argument. You just need the bare necessities to make this and once you do..forget about that microwave stuff.. ENJOY!!

love the brewer's yeast and parmesean. Next time though I will use less salt. 1 cup of oil was perfect Bay. Dave's gonna love it!
