  • 12 cups air popped popcorn
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon basil
  • a dash of hot sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • a pinch or two of paprika for garnish optional
  • fresh parsley for garnish optional


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Melt the butter in a small skillet or saucepan over medium heat. When the butter has melted, add the paprika, garlic powder, salt, oregano, basil and hot sauce and stir to combine.
  • Drizzle the butter mixture over the air popped popcorn, tossing to ensure all the popcorn is well coated. Add the Parmesan cheese and toss well.
  • Pour the popcorn mixture into a shallow roasting pan and roast at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 10-15 minutes, stirring once after about 8 minutes.
  • Sprinkle with an additional pinch or two of paprika and some fresh parsley and serve immediately!
  • Or, if you wish, let the popcorn cool completely to room temperature and package it in airtight containers, bags, or jars to give as edible gifts!
