You’ll find the savory popcorn perfect with any dry sparkling wine; the 5-Spice Popcorn variation is a better fit for a sweeter dry or demi sec style wine such as Schramsberg Cremant or your favorite Moscato d’Asti.
- 1 bag good quality microwave popcorn
- 3 tablespoons melted butter
- ½ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
- ½ teaspoon garlic salt
- ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or to taste
How to make it
Omitting the parmesan cheese and black pepper, sprinkle popcorn instead with 2 teaspoons of togarashi spice mix along with butter and garlic salt. Togarashi is a Japanese seven-spice blend available at Asian markets or in the Asian product aisle of most grocery stores.
Omitting the garlic salt; add ½ teaspoon white truffle oil to the butter before drizzling it over the popcorn. Easy does it; a little truffle oil goes a long way!
Omitting the Parmesan cheese, garlic salt and pepper, drizzle popcorn with the melted butter along with 1 teaspoon of Chinese 5-spice powder and 1 tablespoon light brown sugar or more to taste.
