Recently on Facebook I asked this very important question:
You see, I have this new cookbook called “Classic Snacks Made From Scratch” and I was in a quandary over which salty snack I wanted to make first. Either page 62 – Homemade Goldfish Crackers or page 73 – Cheddar Cheese Popcorn. By a huge margin, y’all choose Cheddar Cheese Popcorn! I’m not sorry you did, either! It was a delicious weekend! Thank you!
Not only did I have Cheddar Cheese Powder in my pantry, I also had White Cheddar Cheese Powder, so you know there wasn’t just ONE batch of popcorn! There were several! Sunday consisted of taking handfuls of Cheddar and White Cheddar Cheese Popcorn every time we walked through the kitchen.
To get started on our cheesy snacks, I got out my old Retro Style Air-Popper, some yellow popcorn kernels and went straight to work!
I forgot how much I like popcorn! I really should have it more often. Doing it in the air-popper is much better for you too. It’s a healthy alternative to the packaged, microwave stuff AND you get to add your own spices to jazz up the flavor! The original recipe calls for making popcorn on the stove. Don’t worry, it’s much easier than it sounds. If you’ve never done it before don’t be afraid to try. It’s fun! I just happened to have the air-popper from when I was a teacher. It was great for making quick snacks in the classroom on Friday afternoons. Yeah, I was that teacher. We made the other rooms jealous because they could smell the popcorn down the hallway! Ha! Now, it’s fun to have at home with the grandkids (When they get old enough, anyway!). I can’t wait to see Mini Sous face the first time we use it together.
Happy Snacking! Oh, and don’t worry! I’ll be trying the Homemade Goldfish Crackers very soon! Then I’ll move on to Cheez-It’s, Oreos, Nutter Butters, Twinkies, Klondike Bars, Strawberry Pop Tars, Tater Tots, Waffle Fries…. This is a very dangerous (but delicious) cookbook!
