Parmesan Pepper Popcorn + Movie Night Essentials

As much as I love a night out, as I’ve gotten older I enjoy spending my nights relaxing at home even more. There’s nothing better on a cool fall night (we’re going to get some of those soon, right?), than cuddling up under a blanket and watching a movie or two.

My husband and I have had quite a few movie nights lately, and what do movie nights call for? Popcorn, and lots of it!

I like to dress mine up a bit with cheese and other seasonings. My favorite combination is Parmesan Pepper Popcorn.

Parmesan Pepper Popcorn + Movie Night Essentials | Hello Little Home #recipe #snackWhen we moved to New York, I gave away my popcorn popper. It definitely made sense at the time (there’s no room in my tiny kitchen), but I still regretted that decision for a while.

Thankfully, I learned how to make stove top popcorn and was able to fill my popcorn void 😉

Stove top popcorn doesn’t take a ton of effort, so whether you have a popcorn maker or not, this Parmesan Pepper Popcorn is an easy treat!

Parmesan Pepper Popcorn

Yield: 1 big bowl

Parmesan Pepper Popcorn

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup popcorn
  • 1/2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 3 tbsp. butter
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • Pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Place popcorn, olive oil, and salt in a large pot.
  2. Stir well. The oil needs to coat every kernel of corn.
  3. Cover the pot and place over medium heat.
  4. Shake the pot continuously back and forth over the burner. The popcorn will start popping after a few minutes. Use potholders to protect your hands from the heat.
  5. Continue shaking the pot until you hear about 3 - 4 seconds between pops.
  6. Remove pot from heat and transfer popcorn to a large serving bowl.
  7. Melt butter in the microwave or in a small skillet.
  8. Drizzle a third of the butter over the popcorn. Top with additional salt (if desired), pepper to taste, and 1/3 of the Parmesan. Mix popcorn well.
  9. Repeat the previous step.
  10. Finish by topping popcorn with remaining butter and Parmesan, plus salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately.

Notes

I recommend using a stock pot or dutch oven to make the popcorn. Just make sure the pot's bottom is not too thin, or your popcorn may burn.

Parmesan Pepper Popcorn | Hello Little Home #snack #recipeOf course, I have a few other movie night essentials, too!

Since I’m staying in, I like to get as cozy as possible. That usually means pajamas and slippers, plus a comfy throw to wrap up in. A few snacks and drinks are necessary, too. Swedish fish, jelly beans, and hot cocoa top my list. I love fun popcorn bowls, too, like the set above (it says “more popcorn, please!” on the inside).

As far as movies go, I love indie flicks and quirky main characters. These are the movies that I’ve watched too many times to count:

Farfalle with Roasted Asparagus, Lemon, and Parmesan – Easy Seasonal Meal, Part 1!

Happy Earth Day! As I’ve mentioned before, I’m lazy, but I still want to do my part when it comes to saving the planet (cue the cheesy music). Instead of investing in a 100% hemp wardrobe, I’m making small changes to be a little more eco friendly.

I’ve found that one of the easiest ways to go green is to carry my own bags when I go shopping. I’ll admit that I forget them at home half of the time, but at least I’m trying!

Another easy way to go green is to cook seasonal meals. I took my bag to the grocery store this past weekend and picked up asparagus and strawberries.

This Farfalle with Roasted Asparagus, Lemon, and Parmesan is what I whipped up!
