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


  • 12 cups popped popcorn
  • 6 tablespoons butter, cubed
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil


  1. Place popcorn in a large bowl; set aside. In a small skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add garlic; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes. Strain butter, discarding garlic.
  2. Drizzle butter over popcorn. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, salt and basil; toss to coat.
