DIRECTIONS

  • Heat olive oil over medium-high heat in a large heavy-bottomed pot with a lid.
  • Add diced pancetta and render until golden brown and slightly crisped.
  • Meanwhile, combine Parmesan cheese, oregano, red pepper flakes, and garlic powder in a small bowl, and set aside.
  • When the pancetta is ready, drop three kernels into the oil, and wait for them to pop.
  • Once the test kernels pop, remove the pot from the heat, stir in the popcorn and shake gently, to coat in oil and pancetta.
  • Place popcorn back over medium high heat and cover with lid.
  • Shake the pot until there are several seconds between each pop.
  • Remove from heat, and remove the lid carefully: there will be steam.
  • To season, pour half of the popcorn into a large bowl. Drizzle with half of the melted butter and half of the seasoning blend, and then toss to coat. Repeat with the remaining popcorn, butter, and seasoning.
  • Serve hot.
