Don’t tell anyone, but my secret is out. In the past I have been known to pop a bag of microwave popcorn. Not any more, it tastes horrible and it is so bad for you. Ever since I rediscovered how easy it is to “pop” corn the old fashion way; on the stove, in oil, in a large covered pot, I will never ever buy that toxic waste called microwave popcorn again. I have been also been researching new recipes using Truffle Oil. So tonight’s game night treat, while playing Batman Monopoly, is White Truffle & Parmesan popcorn. The strong, intense, earthy flavor of this oil is a perfect complement to the dry, sharp taste of fresh Parmesan cheese. Paired with a glass of red wine, oh so, tasty & “Chique”. Off to eat the corn before it goes…
Truffle & Parmesan Cheese Popcorn
3 Tbsp canola oil (could use other high heat oils)
1/3 cup of high quality popcorn kernels
1 tsp of infused White Truffle Oil
Fresh Parmesan Cheese
Sea Salt to taste
Heat the canola oil and three kernels in a large covered stockpot on high heat. When the 3 kernels pop, the oil is hot enough to add the rest of the popcorn, so add the remaining kernels in an even layer on the bottom of the pot. Cover and remove from the heat for 30 seconds then put back on high heat. Once the kernels start to pop rapidly, gentle shake the pan to ensure the kernels on the bottom don’t burn. Once there are a few seconds in between popping kernels remove from the heat, carefully open the lid and pour into a large bowl. Drizzle with the White Truffle Oil, shave fresh Parmesan, sprinkle with Sea Salt to taste, toss and enjoy!
