I came up with this recipe one night when I was craving a salty snack. It's a great change from ordinary salted popcorn.—Rita Scarborough, Barrington, New Jersey

"Every Friday night my family has movie night where we alwasy make up a big batch of homemade popcorn. I'm always looking for new seasoning to try out. This had great flavor and made a lot. My only complaint is having to cook the garlic on the stove. I usually use garlic seasoning to make things going quicker. So I'm going to melt the butter in the microwave next time and mix it with garlic salt."
