An Easy Salty Snack
If you enjoy eating popcorn and want a way to change things up, I have the easiest recipe idea for you! This tastes just like gourmet popcorn but takes just a few minutes to put it together.
How To Make Gourmet Popcorn At Home
You can make this recipe with a bag of microwave popcorn. If you want to avoid all the salt and extra ingredients in microwave popcorn, use this recipe to make DIY microwave popcorn. It’s so much better for you!
This is a fun and healthy snack. In fact, I love to enjoy it with some oven-baked chicken tenders or spicy potato wedges.
What You Need:
Here’s what you’ll need from the store. The exact amounts are in the printable recipe card at the bottom of this post.
Kitchen Tools Needed:
If you have any questions about this recipe, please leave them in the comments. Even though this is a really easy idea, here are a few more tips that might help you out.
Enjoy It Fresh
This is such an easy snack idea that you don’t really need to make a bunch of popcorn topping and store it. Just pop a bowl of popcorn and then add the cheese and spices on top. That’s all!
Butter Or Olive Oil On Popcorn
This is a personal choice and one isn’t better than the other. You can also melt some ghee and use it on the popcorn if you are avoiding dairy.
Other Spice Combinations
What else do you like on your popcorn? Be creative and have fun with it! Here are a few more ideas that you can try next:
- Chili powder

That popcorn recipe sounds amazing. I think the addition of the cheese is great. Cheese is always a great option with popcorn.
I love popcorn but unfortunately, I am no longer allowed to eat it due to some medical issues but I miss it so much. My family still eats it and I know they will love this, I never thought about the hard boiled egg snack, gonna try that out!
I am always looking for ways I can snack healthier. I will have to start using my air popper. I have been using the microwave kind for years now and forgot all about my air popper.
I think I like either cheddar popcorn, or caramel popcorn. Aside from movie-theater buttered popcorn! Popcorn is such a great snack, I will have to try your recipe!
Popcorn is my JAM!! I haven’t made it at home in a while but this makes me want to make some right now! LOL!
I find healthy eating to be insanely delicious – so I don’t ever really understand what people are talking about when they say healthy eating is boring and bland.
I love popcorn so much! I love this recipe, the addition of cheese is SUPER awesome to me. I am going to try this.
I love popcorn but I prefer it plain (I know it sounds boring lol). Getting your pre-pregnancy bod is so hard, I still can’t get it, ten years later lol.
Seasoning is definitely a better and tastier and healthier option.I always drown mine in butter. Yum, lol!
I struggle with my eating habit. I always snack on sweet anything. This is good news for me, I really want the healthy popcorn style!

These are great ideas. Hard boiled eggs, cheese, and popcorn are all top choices for me. I’m going to try your popcorn.
We love snacking on popcorn. I’ve never tried adding paprika though. Interesting! I will have to try that one of these days.
I have done some of these things with popcorn. I can imagine that paprika with parmesan would be interesting. I have like parmesan with the popcorn though. Love it.
