Prep:

5 Min

Ingredients

1/4 c
plain white popcorn kernels
1 tsp
oil (any kind: olive, grapeseed, vegetable)
1/2 tsp
salt or popcorn salt (or more)
butter flavor "pam" or melted butter (to taste)
1 tsp
white truffle oil (or to taste)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a cup or small bowl, mix together the unpopped popcorn and oil. Pour the coated corn into a brown paper lunch sack, and sprinkle in the salt. Fold the top of the bag over twice to seal in the ingredients. Cook in the microwave at full power for 2½ to 3 minutes, or until you hear pauses of about 2 seconds between pops. Carefully open the bag to avoid steam, and pour into a large bowl. -- OR -- Pop corn in an air popper per instructions.
2
Spritz the popcorn with butter flavor PAM and white truffle oil, in desired amounts. Start with TINY amounts and toss the popcorn as you spray. A little bit of the truffle oil goes a LONG way…
Toss the popcorn with additional salt or some grated Parmesan cheese after the oil is sprayed on, if desired.

(Tip - One of those small plastic squirt bottles found in the “vacation miniature toiletries” section works just as well as a genuine oil mist sprayer… but it should be opaque and not clear if you store the truffle oil in it for a time).
