Panko breadcrumbs are added to this popcorn for a heightened garlic bread experience! Make a batch and it will be gone in minutes!
- 1 ¼ cup Unpopped corn kernels
- 3 tablespoons Coconut oil
- 5 tablespoons Unsalted butter melted and slightly cooled
- 2 ¼ teaspoon Dried parsley
- 2 ¼ teaspoon Dried basil
- 2 ¼ teaspoon Dried oregano
- 2 tablespoons Dried garlic powder
- Salt to taste
- 1/2 cup Toasted panko breadcrumbs optional
Pop your kernels, old school style:
Set the heat to medium-high. Add coconut oil to a large pot with a lid. Add the kernels and cover the pot. When you hear the first sound of kernels popping, reduce heat to medium-low and allow the kernels to pop completely.
Every minute or so, give the pot a shake to ensure all your kernels have been hit with a heat situation (this will make them all pop).
Remove from heat, transfer to a very large bowl and set aside.
OR!! If you own a popcorn maker (like the bomb-ass Whirley Pop) pop your popcorn according to manufacturer’s instructions.
Make the garlic bread mixture:
In a small bowl, combine the melted butter, dried parsley, dried basil, dried oregano, and garlic powder. Mix to combine until it makes an herby paste. Sprinkle salt and taste. Adjust seasonings if needed.
Pour the seasoned herb paste over the popcorn and with clean hands mix to distribute. Some kernels will have large amounts of herb mixture and that is a good thing. Add the panko bread crumbs, if using. Give it a little mix and enjoy immediately.
