Pizza Flavored Popcorn

By Movie Girl | Recipes , Savory

PizzaFlavoredPopcorn

In 1593, Guiseppe Pomodoro Pane invented an Italian pie made of a flat bread with a spicy tomato paste. In 1476, a Native American whose name loosely translates to Running Deer accidently dropped an ear of corn into the fire, creating the first popped corn. In 1972, history came together when Erma Crocker (no relation to Betty) needed an afternoon snack for her rowdy group of kids.

The cupboards were looking kind of bare, but the enterprising Erma threw together some Italian spices and popcorn creating the savory and satisfying pizza popcorn. The above facts may or may not be true, but what is true is that pizza flavored popcorn is an awesome snack.

There are several variations on this classic taste, you can use melted butter or olive oil. You can drizzle the sauce over the popped corn or warm it in the oven in a baking dish. The most important thing is to get the right combination of Italian spices for that familiar pizza flavor.

Bacon Flavored Popcorn

By Movie Girl | Recipes , Savory

When it comes to savory and salty, it’s hard to argue with the flavor of bacon. Bacon flavored popcorn isn’t really anything new, it’s just popcorn popped with bacon grease. This is something many people’s grandparents or great grandparents have been doing all along.

There is a company called J&D’s that makes a pre-popped bacon flavored popcorn and a microwave version. We don’t think it actually contains bacon, and the microwave version received some pretty bad reviews. So we are going to stick with the real thing.

First thing we will need is some bacon grease. Cook up some bacon and save the grease. Now it is time to make some popcorn. You can make this in your whirly-pop or, if you don’t want to get bacon grease in it, just use a pan with a lid and shake it back and forth over the stove-top.

Bacon Flavored Popcorn

Bacon Flavored Popcorn

Ingredients

  • 2-3 Tablespoons bacon grease
  • 1/4 Cup popcorn
  • 1/2 Teaspoon regular or seasoned salt
  • 2 Tablespoons bacon bits (optional)
  • 1/2 Cup shredded cheese (optional)

Instructions

  1. Pop your corn using a whirly-pop popcorn popper or on the stove top. To use the stove top just heat oil and test with a couple of popcorn kernels. After they pop, add the rest of the popcorn and cover, then move the pan back and forth until all or most kernels are popped.
  2. After the corn is popped, additional bacon grease or butter can be added (also optional), then add salt and stir in bacon bits and cheese if desired.

What Is Dill Pickle Popcorn

By Movie Girl | Recipes , Savory

I am always looking for different ways to make my favorite treat, popcorn. I recently discovered dill pickle popcorn and it is a savory, acidic, salty treat. If you don’t want to spend a lot of time finding the right seasonings or popping your corn you could purchase something like this Van Holten’s Big Papa Dill Pickle Popcorn.

Van Holten's Big Papa Dill Pickle Popcorn.

 

If you are a do it yourself popcorn maker then you could pop some corn and add a pre-made popcorn seasoning. Such as this garlic herb Tangy Dill Pickle Seasoning. Some people love this, and other people think it is a bit too salty and not enough dill flavor. If that is the case you could doctor this up a bit by skipping added salt and throw in some additional dill weed seasoning.

Tangy Dill Pickle Seasoning

 

People who frequent this site are popcorn connoisseurs, so we like to do things the old school way. We are going to make our seasoning and add it to popped buttered corn. To get the freshest flavor from our spices we will need whole spices and a spice grinder or mortar and pestle. You have one of those, right? You can also combine different flavors to create your own version, but here is a standard dill pickle combination.

Dill Pickle Popcorn

Dill Pickle Popcorn

Ingredients

    Spices
  • 1 Tablespoon coriander seed
  • 1 Tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoons dill weed
  • 1/2 Teaspoon mustard seed
  • 1/2 Teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon celery seed
  • 1/2 Teaspoon citric acid

Instructions

  1. Put your spices in a spice grinder and process until smooth. You could also use a mortar and pestle if you don’t have a grinder. Pop half a cup of popcorn and drizzle with butter. Add spices to taste, until you have the perfectly flavored dill pickle popcorn. Yum!

You can find many spice grinders and coffee grinders on Amazon or Ross or where ever you prefer to shop. You can use a coffee grinder as a spice grinder, but it has to be clean. Otherwise, your dill pickle seasoning will be coffee flavored and vice a versa. Here is a super affordable grinder, but there are many better options available.

What Is The Best Stove Top Popcorn Maker

By Movie Girl | Popcorn Makers , Stove Top

When we think of popcorn we think of fun. Popcorn is synonymous with movie nights, family fun and parties. It is also a fiber filled, gluten free, whole grain snack, and recent studies even tout popcorn as an antioxidant rich food.

Popcorn is also economical, you can feed a lot of kids with a batch or two of popcorn. Making homemade popcorn with a stove top popcorn maker is healthy, inexpensive, and delicious. You may remember your grandma using a whirlybird popcorn popper, which has a crank that turns and keeps the popcorn from burning.

In case you are wondering how to use a stovetop popcorn popper, just set your burner to low heat, add oil and 1/2 cup of popcorn then let it pop. They are also easy to clean, just wipe out with a paper towel. You can also add butter and other seasonings in with the unpopped kernels for extra flavor.

Here are 4 great options for choosing the best stove top or whirly popcorn popper.

Wabash Valley Farms 25008 Whirley-Pop Stovetop Popcorn Popper

Wabash Valley Farms 25008 Whirley-Pop Stovetop Popcorn Popper

This six quart aluminum pan has a wooden hand crank that turns the stainless steel stirring system, which keeps the popcorn moving across the bottom of the pan. This provides even distribution of heat and oil. The lid clips on and is vented to let the steam escape to keep the popcorn crisp and dry.

This is the original whirly-pop stovetop popcorn maker. It is economical and easy to use and clean. Making delicious buttered popcorn in this is a given, but there is no limit to what flavored popcorn treats you can create with this popper. People have even been known to use it for roasting coffee beans. Some even think this is the best popcorn popper for coffee, just be sure to roast the beans outside so that you don’t smoke up your house.

  • Makes 6 quarts of popcorn in about 3 minutes
  • Stirring mechanism prevents sticking and burning
  • Easy clean up: Just wipe with a paper towel
  • 25 year warranty on all moving parts

Whirley Pop Stovetop 6 Quart Popcorn Popper Color: Red

Whirley Pop Stovetop 6 Quart Popcorn Popper Color: Red

 

This popcorn popper is similar to the original whirly pop stove top popcorn maker, except that this whirly pop popcorn popper has the fancy red color. The pan is still aluminum and holds 6 quarts. Like the original it is lightweight and easy to use. Cleaning is as simple as wiping the whirly popcorn popper with a paper towel.

You can pop the corn with a bit of oil or you can get fancy and add butter and salt right to the pan. For a healthier version, you can use organic popcorn, coconut oil, and grass-fed butter. For a delicious treat try making homemade kettle corn.

Easy Kettle Corn Recipe

  • 1/2 cup popcorn
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • salt before serving

Great Northern Popcorn Original Spinner Stovetop 6-1/2-Quart Popcorn Popper

Great Northern Popcorn Original Spinner Stovetop 6-1/2-Quart Popcorn Popper

 

 

Great Northern also makes a quality spinning stove top popcorn maker. This one is aluminum and the container is 6 1/2 quarts, which should make batches of 5 quarts of popcorn at a time. With the non-burning spinning mechanism, it is easy to churn out batch after batch of homemade popped corn within minutes.

The Wabash popcorn poppers have plastic gears, which should hold up fine with gentle use. Some of the Great Northern makers have plastic gears, some have metal. If you are concerned with longevity or think your popcorn maker will get rough use, try to find the sturdier metal gear models.

  • Makes 5 Quarts of Popcorn in Minutes
  • Spinning Stirrer Prevents Burning
  • Real Wood Knobs and Handles
  • Easy Clean Up – Just Wipe and Go
  • Lightweight Aluminum

Great Northern Popcorn Original Stainless Steel Stove Top 6-1/2-Quart Popcorn Popper

Great Northern Popcorn Original Stainless Steel Stove Top 6-1/2-Quart Popcorn Popper

 

If you are looking for a better quality popper or are worried about the adverse health effects of cooking with aluminum, this stainless steel option is a good choice. This Great Northern popper is similar to the previous popper except that it is made of stainless steel and has metal instead of plastic gears.

Stainless steel is heavier than the aluminum. It can also stick more, but with the oil and the stirring spinner that shouldn’t be an issue with this popper. Some customer recommended popping tips on this model are to use medium or medium high heat, but try not to get it too hot. Use a small amount of oil and cover the bottom of the pan with kernels. If you use too much popping corn the pot will get too full and the stirrer won’t turn.

  • 61/2 Quart popper makes about 5 quarts of popcorn
  • Stainless Steel Pot
  • Metal Gears
  • Wood Handles
  • Easy clean, wipe and go

Another Kettle Corn Variation

  • 2 Tablespoons Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 Corn Kernels
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/3 Cup Sugar
  • Heat everything until hot, then add popcorn kernels.
  • Turn the handle and stir when popping starts.
  • Enjoy!

How To Use A Hot Air Popcorn Popper

By Movie Girl | Articles

Hot air popped popcorn is great because it is a fast healthy snack that can taste pretty good too. If you are wondering how to use a hot air popper? There isn’t much to it. Just remove the popping chute and fill the popping chamber with 1/4 to 1/2 cup of popcorn kernels. Then replace the chute and make sure the melting lid is in place.

family-eating-popcorn

Then put a bowl under the chute. Make sure your bowl is large enough to hold about 15 cups of popcorn if you used up to 1/2 cup of kernels.

Then plug your popper in and hit the on switch if your popper has one. There is no need to add oil. In fact, oil will damage your hot air popper. If you want a more authentic oil popped taste you may want to consider a stove top popper or an electric popcorn popper.

The beauty of an air popped popper is that it pops with air and adds no calories, fat or sodium to the popcorn. After popping, you can add butter, salt or other flavorings. Most air poppers have a lid that doubles as a butter melting cup. If you want you can add butter in the melting cup and it will melt as the corn pops.

Then after all of the popped corn is in the bowl you can pour the melted butter over the top and add popcorn salt or other popcorn seasonings. The butter melting cup is a nice novelty, but it is a bit messy. Sometimes it is easier to melt your butter in a saucepan on the stove or in a cup in the microwave.

You can read our reviews of the best hot air poppers here if you are in the market for one. We also have some ideas for healthy toppings that will be big on flavor but low on calories and fat.

West Bend Stir Crazy Popcorn Maker

By Movie Girl | Electric , Popcorn Makers

When I was a kid I had an electric popcorn popper, and I absolutely loved it. I even got to bring it to my 4th grade classroom when we were stringing popcorn to decorate our class Christmas tree.

I know things have changed a bit since those days, but give a kid a popcorn popper and they will find all kinds of fun uses for it. I used mine for slumber parties, afterschool snacks, and movie nights. My Mom even used the popping bowl for a mixing bowl. It was just that useful.

West Bend 82505 Stir Crazy Popcorn Popper, 6-Quart

This West Bend Stir Crazy popper is a little bit fancier than the one I had, but it would still be as fun. This popper has a motorized stirring rod, so there are no burnt kernels.

It also has a place on the top to put butter. As the popper heats up the butter melts and drips onto the popcorn. After you are done popping, just put the lid over the butter area and then you can flip the popper over and use the popping cover as a serving bowl.

West Bend 82306X Stir Crazy 6-Quart Popcorn Popper

West Bend 82306X Stir Crazy 6-Quart Popcorn Popper

This is the original Stir Crazy Popcorn Maker. It comes with the stirring rod, and the melting lid, and butter drip station. You can also put the cover over the butter area and then flip it over and serve the freshly popped corn in the popper cover.

This popper is the original and has received rave reviews. In our opinion, the previous popper is the newer model and probably a better purchase, but it is hard to go wrong with a classic. West Bend has been making electric popcorn poppers for a while now, and they know what they are doing.

West Bend 82386 Kettle Krazy Popcorn Popper and Nut Roaster

West Bend 82386 Kettle Krazy Popcorn Popper and Nut Roaster

Here is another stirring popper from West Bend. This one has a sturdier stirring rod and it has two settings, one for popcorn and one for roasting nuts.

I actually assumed this popper was for making kettle corn because of its name, but it is just a popper. Although that won’t stop me from making kettle corn in it.

To make kettle corn, pop in coconut oil then add butter, salt and sugar. Now you have kettle corn. If you want to make it really authentic, purchase some mushroom popcorn for that true kettle corn experience.

The nut roasting is also a nice feature of this popper. Fresh roasted nuts are yummy and it is easy to make different variations with salt, sugar and spices.

This popper has an older retro look, but is still a popular model.

The electric popcorn popper isn’t by West Bend, but it seems like a similar contender. This machine by Paramount has a fun black and white design and a stirring mechanism.

It also has the serving bowl butter melting top, which is also dishwasher safe. The heating element is 1000 watts for fast popping and the popping plate is non-stick ceramic. This popper is Teflon free.

This is actually a nice popper and definitely gives the stir crazy popper a run for its money. You can use up to 6 ounce packet of corn with this popper. This popper has received positive reviews and seems like a good choice in electric popcorn poppers.

Glass Microwave Popcorn Poppers

By Movie Girl | Glass , Popcorn Makers

Nothing says modern kitchen convenience like a microwave. Still, pre-packaged microwave popcorns contain a lot of strange chemical ingredients and artificial flavors, which makes home popped popcorn very attractive.

Many of us are also short on counter space. If only there was a way to make home-made popcorn without having to find a spot for another appliance. The answer is a microwave popcorn popper. We have reviewed plastic microwave popcorn poppers, but this review is about glass microwave popcorn poppers.

Catamount Glassware 1-Quart Personal Popcorn Popper

 

 

Catamount Glassware 1-Quart Personal Popcorn Popper

Catamount Glassware 1-Quart Personal Popcorn Popper

The Catamount Glassware 1 quart microwave popcorn popper is a personal popper. It only uses about ¼ cup of popcorn and makes small batches.

There have been some reviewer complaints about burning or unpopped kernels. Like all microwave popcorns you have to experiment with the temperature and time. If burning is an issue lower the temp or time. If unpopped kernels is an issue raise the temperature or time.

If your microwave has a popcorn setting, you should get good results with this popper if you use that setting. This is a cool little glass popcorn maker with a silicone lid. Made by a good company.

The Catamount glass company was started by a solo-entrepreneur in his basement. Now it is a US based company that has been going strong for over 30 years. This company takes pride in its products and quality assurance.

Here is a cool shaped glass popcorn popper by Epoca. Some customers have reported good results with this popper, but be warned it seems to be very fragile. Also, we believe the glass on this one is made in China as are many of our kitchen gadgets.

This popper has that Vermont artisan charm, and it is actually made in Vermont because it’s from Catamount Glass. This is a personal popper, so it only pops small amounts. Not that it’s a huge issue, since it’s not too difficult to make a second batch.

Nostalgia Electrics KPK400 Theater Popcorn Kit

Nostalgia Electrics makes a fun popcorn kit. This kit contains 1 pound of popcorn, and an 8 ounce bottle of butter flavored canola oil, and three bottles of seasonings. The seasoning flavors are nacho cheddar, white cheddar, and ranch.

This kit would be good for hot air poppers or any other popping machine that you have. This doesn’t actually come with the popcorn oil because the butter flavored canola oil is used as flavoring after the popcorn is popped. If you’ve ever wondered what the butter at the movie theater is it is butter flavored canola oil.

This kit is fairly popular and has received some good and bad reviews. Some people said the popcorn was stale, while others thought it tasted fine. The seasoning salts were good, and the butter flavored canola oil tastes like butter flavored canola oil.
