  • 3 Tablespoons oil Canola oil works well here
  • 1/2 Cup popcorn kernels
  • 3 Tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 6 Tablespoons grated Parmesan
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  • Place oil and popcorn in your Whirley Pop popcorn maker or pan. Pop and place in a large bowl.
  • 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.
  • Drizzle the butter over the popcorn. Sprinkle with the Parmesan and salt and toss well.
