  • 3 T . oil
  • 1/2 C . popcorn kernels
  • 3 T . unsalted butter
  • 6 T . grated Parmesan
  • 1/4 t . salt


  1. Place oil and popcorn in your Whirley Pop popcorn maker or pan. Pop and place in a large bowl.
  2. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Swirl or stir the butter with a wooden spoon as it starts to foam and sputter. Remove the butter from the heat as soon as it begins to turn golden brown and smells nutty, about 1 minute.
  3. Drizzle the butter over the popcorn. Sprinkle with the Parmesan and salt and toss well.
