How to Make White Truffle Popcorn
- 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.
- 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).
