Simple homemade Cheddar popcorn can be made with just 3 ingredients. Unlike popcorn from a bag or tin, this is hot and fresh. I've been making this since I was a kid. It got me in trouble though, because I used to snag the packet from the boxed mac and cheese in the pantry. Thankfully, they sell the Cheddar powder on its own now.

  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup popcorn
  • 2 tablespoons Cheddar cheese powder
Step By Step Method
  1. Place oil in a large stock pot over medium-high heat. Place 3 popcorn kernels in the pot. Cover.
  2. Wait for all 3 kernels to pop. Add remaining popcorn kernels. Cover the pot with a lid and cook until two seconds go by and kernels are no longer popping, about 3 minutes.
  3. Transfer popped corn to a large bowl. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon Cheddar cheese powder over popcorn; toss. Sprinkle remaining 1 tablespoon cheese powder over popcorn; toss again. Serve immediately.
