I really liked this and I will probably never buy commercial popcorn seasoning again. I made it exactly as recipe called for, but using the Kraft powdered parmesan cheese as I did not have fresh grated on hand. ( I used perhaps 1/4 cup of this as it just seemed all I would need ). I also did not have garlic salt so I used 1 tsp of garlic powder and 1/2 tsp of sea salt. I will make this again but next time, I want to try it with melted butter drizzled around and the powdered mix sprinkled on separately as this is my traditional method and I would like to compare. I look forward to trying different flavours now. Read More

I have a microwave popcorn bowl so I used the olive oil in the bowl, added all the seasonings except for Parmesan cheese and then popped the corn. Once finished popping I only had to add the Parmesan cheese. Read More

OMG...that was so very delicious. I used garlic infused olive oil French gray salt garlic powder and fresh grated Parmesan. This is definitely a keeper. Thanks Jon! Read More

I used freshly grated Parmesan instead of the stuff in the can and it was too heavy to stick to the popcorn! It all piled up on the bottom of the bowl. Perhaps if I'd added more olive oil to make it stick? Read More

Next time I'll add a little butter. The Parmesan cheese added just the right amount of saltiness. Read More

I love throw recipe so much! The results of the popcorn was GREAT and I don’t think I will ever by pre made popcorn seasoning again. I did add a little bit of melted butter too and that just made it even better. I highly recommend using this recipe for a quick fix when guests are coming over or just for family movie night.
