Ingredients

  • 1 3.5-ounce package microwave popcorn or 1/2 cup popcorn kernels
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan
  • kosher salt

Directions

  1. Pop the popcorn according to the package directions.
  2. Brown the butter: Melt the butter in a skillet or 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 over the popcorn. Sprinkle with the Parmesan and ¼ teaspoon salt and toss well.

    Cranberries

    High in vitamin C, these hard, tart berries are grown in bogs in colder regions of North America and Europe. They’re almost always eaten cooked, as in the classic Thanksgiving relish.
