Hi -

Pick a flavor for popcorn and let me know what you want!! Just name it - I probably got it in my files.

Here’s a few “cheese” popcorn recipes - just use white cheddar -

Cheddar bacon popcorn

10 c Popped corn
¼ lb Sharp cheddar cheese; finely grated

Preheat oven to 250~. In a lg. baking pan, combine bacon, popcorn, and cheese. Bake for 3 to 5 mins., or until cheese is just melted.


Cheddar cheese popcorn

2/3 c Unpopped popcorn
1/3 c Butter
1 c Finely grated cheese, (use more if you want it cheesier)
Salt to taste
(cheddar, brick, or colby)

Pop the popcorn. Melt the butter. Grind some pepper into the butter. Stir. Layer the cheese into the popcorn. Pour the butter mixture on top, and salt.


Cheddar-chive popcorn

Remove the pan from the oven. Toss the cheese with the popcorn, allow to cool slightly, then serve at once, adding salt to taste.

Hi Kitchen Witch- I Geuss What I’m Looking For Is Things That Can Be Stored Like Jar Recipes. We Love Popcorn And Eat It Alot. Thanks For Your Help. I Don’t Know If There Are Some Like That. Thanks For Looking For Me. Shelley

Okay - I gotcha now! The only thing I can think of other than buying powdered White Cheddar Cheese (in the spice island of your supermarket) and mixing your own with salt, etc. is possibly grating the cheese very finely and “drying” it in the freezer on a large baking sheet; adding salt/spices to taste after frozen and storing in the freezer in individual packets. You may be able tp powder it on your own with a food processor after it is frozen by working quickly in batches. I wouldn’t store it in the cupboard - I would store in the freezer.


I would use a microplane (you can buy them at any hardware store) and that would give you a really small grate (“sawdust” style); then freeze, season and store in the freezer.

I have to try this to see how it works!


Here’s two recipes that I found:

Drizzle hot popcorn with melted butter or margarine.
Add ONE of the following:

  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • Italian salad dressing mix (use 1/2 of a 7 oz pkg, about 1 Tbsp)
  • 2 Tbso instant lemon-flavored iced tea mix (if using unsweetened, add 1 Tbsp sugar)
  • 3 Tbsp chocolate flavoured drink mix
  • cinnamon sugar (combine 1 Tbsp sugar with 1/4 tsp cinnamon)

Another is:

1-2 Tbsp finely grated or powdered Parmesan cheese
2 tsp powdered cheddar cheese and/or powdered blue cheese
1/4 tsp chile ancho
1/4 tsp or more granulated garlic
1 tsp Italian herbs
Sea salt to taste
