speaking of potato chips - seasoning ideas? (popcorn, too)

  • a

My husband likes to douse his chips or popcorn in fresh-grated parmesan and black pepper. Personally I'm a fan of old bay seasoning, with an extra kick of cayenne. But we're having a figure-skating-watching party tonight (soon!) and need some ideas for a unique and interesting seasoning to serve our guests.

  1. I'm a big fan of mixing some Worcestershire sauce into the popcorn butter. You can still add the parmesan and black pepper too for real zing! I also like using lemon pepper, the cheap supermarket kind, not the fancy Trader Joe's kind. I've also been known to saute a little chopped garlic in the melted popcorn butter.

    1. For potato chips...I love malt vinegar, coarse sea salt and plenty of ground black pepper.
      For the favorite is olive oil heated/infused with rosemary, and a healthy grating of parmesan cheese.

      1. For popcorn, I love to mix Tony Chacheres Cajun seasoning into melted butter and toss the popcorn in it. Yum!

          garlic powder and cayenne pepper.

            I am ashamed to admit that my new favourite seasoning for popcorn is white truffle oil (very expensive popcorn). I sprinkle it on the warm organic popcorn and eat the entire bowl myself. Yummy.
