Smoked Parmesan Herb Popcorn
Your favorite movie night snack is all grown up. Buttery, garlicky, cheesy, with a hint of smoke, you may never be able to eat the regular stuff again.
4 tbsp butter
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp Italian Seasoning
1 tsp Garlic Powder
1 tsp Salt
1/4 cup popcorn kernels
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1 brown paper lunch bag
When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on smoke with lid open until fire is established (4-5 minutes). Set the temperature to 250 degrees F and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.
In a small sauce pan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add Italian seasoning, garlic powder and salt and stir to combine. Remove from heat and set aside.
Add 1/4 cup of popcorn to brown paper lunch bag. Fold the top of the bag over twice to close.
Place the bag in the microwave and microwave on high for 1 to 2 minutes, or until there are about 5 seconds between pops.
Open the bag with care and dump into a large mixing bowl.
Pour butter mixture of popcorn in bowl and toss to combine. Dump popcorn onto a baking sheet and place in grill.
Smoke for 10 minutes; remove from grill. Enjoy!
