Grab the blood pressure pills and call the cardiologist, have I’ve got an awesome recipe for y’all today!  Fresh popcorn popped in bacon fat then drizzled with butter and sprinkled with bacon pieces and parmesan cheese.  Oooo, it’s so good!  No seriously, I know this is a little excessive, but what would life be like if we weren’t a little over-the-top now and then.  Everything in moderation… including moderation.  The last time I made this, the neighbor kids were over playing and I thought the little girl was going to freak out when I started popping the corn on the stove in a pot.  She had only ever seen popcorn made in the microwave! This is an awesome snack (we actually had it for lunch) and is a real crowd pleaser!

 

Ingredients

  • 6 strips of bacon
  • 1/2 cup popping corn
  • 4 tablespoons of butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • salt and pepper (optional)

 

Directions

  1. In a large, deep pot with a lid fry the bacon over medium heat until crisp.
  2. Remove from pan and crumble when cool.
  3. Add one kernel of popping corn to the remaining bacon fat and cover.  Listen for it to pop.
  4. When that kernel pops, add the rest of the popping corn and cover.  Shake the pot gentle to keep the popcorn from burning.
  5. Allow the popcorn to pop, continuing the shake the pot, until the popping slows.
  6. Remove from heat.  Drizzle with butter, sprinkle with parmesan cheese and crumble bacon.  You can also add a little salt and pepper here too, if you’d like.  Toss to coat.
  7. Then get out of the way and watch how fast this stuff goes!

  2. What is there not to love in this recipe??? Gotta make this soon! Thanks for a great sounding recipe!!

  3. Haven’t made this in years and years! I may have to give my bacon-loving granddaughter a real treat this weekend. She’s never seen popcorn popped on the stove either.

  4. My nephew came to visit me when he was little and I asked if he wanted me to make him some popcorn. He told me that I couldn’t because I didn’t have a microwave. He was quite amazed that I could make popcorn without a microwave!

  5. YUM!! We make Parmesan popcorn often and I will definitely be adding bacon and popping in the bacon fat! Oh my!

  6. Oh, my! I’m speechless! How could you not love this? I’ve cooked popcorn in bacon grease but never thought about adding chunks of bacon. Oh, my!

  7. Oh my goodness, does this ever look scrumptious! I do believe this will be made in my kitchen very soon!
