TO MAKE THE CREOLE-SPICED POPCORN SEASONING


Step 1

Heat clarified butter over medium heat until bubbling. Add spices and stir. Continue to heat for 1 minute. Remove from heat and keep warm.

TO MAKE THE POPCORN


Step 2

Place the bacon grease, along with 3 kernels of corn, in a heavy-bottom pan. Heat at medium-high until the kernels pop, about 4 minutes. Remove popped kernels.

Step 3

Pour in the remaining popcorn and stir with a wooden spoon to coat kernels. Place a lid on the pot and continue to heat until kernels begin to pop. Turn off heat. With lid tightly secured, shake pot to ensure that all kernels pop. Continue to agitate until the popping slows, 1–2 minutes.

Step 4

Remove from heat and immediately transfer to a large serving bowl. Sprinkle with salt and drizzle with the Creole-Spiced butter.

I had to use what I had on hand (already popped popcorn and cooked bacon strips), but I loved how it came out, and the spice amounts were all spot on.

Yum!!! This was so good, loved the spice and have never popped in bacon grease (not healthy but oh so good). Thanks for the great post.

I used microwave popcorn b/c that's what I had, but I figure the seasoning was the important thing! We both loved it! made for SWT2018

This sure makes for a different snack, hubby loved it, for me it was a little to salty. Flavors were great, but next time I'd back of the salt by half.
