          Some tempting ideas have come up on other topics lately: butter and soya sauce, or peanut butter and honey

          1. BiscuitBoy May 6, 2010 06:39 AM

            Extra virgin olive oil and salt -or- a few shakes of red robin seasoned salt

                Try the Reddi Chik salt. It's not on the menu but they'll sell you some.

                  Yep Lowrey's seasoning salt would work nicely

                      I buy powdered cheese off ebay. It is meant for restaurants to make a quick cheese sauce with. It is cheese by the way. I sprinkle that onto popcorn. i tried the powder from mac and cheese box but it was too salty.

                      From another thread, someone suggested Sweetened condensed milk drizzled over popcorn. It is apparently very popular in South America.

                      I wonder if cinnamon would work? or chili powder? I have heard of pepper.

                      Then you go a combo like maybe chili powder and a little cayenne in my cheese powder. Wouldn't that sorta be like nachos or Doritos?

                      Cinnamon or cocoa powder over that sweetened condensed milk.

                      Well I guess goodhealthgourmet wants us to know this isn't an original thread but it is still fun to try to think up stuff that would work.

                          GHG often does the dirty work for us and replies with a long list of previous visits to a topic. It's so thoughtful -- I have the worst time navigating the search function on this site and she's a wizard with it, it seems!

                              No, I just mix it in with the butter and melt it all together.
