"A little bland for my taste...I too used garlic powder + salt & could've gone heavier on both. Also, it took closer to 30 minutes for mine to be tender crisp. Will make again, love the method!"

"No review, just a question: When do you put the Parmesan cheese on? After roasting or with the garlic salt? Thanks!"

"We did not use the parmesan, we used garlic powder + salt as we did not have garlic salt. My husband didn't measure anything, so I think he seasoned it more heavily than these measurements. Having said all that--we LOVED this. My kids ate it cheerfully and voluntarily. It's definitely not like popcorn, but it is tasty and has a great texture."
