This healthy recipe comes from the Popcorn Board.


2 1/2 quarts popped popcorn

4 Tbsp. butter, melted

1 tsp. paprika

1/2 tsp. onion powder

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper

1 tsp. lemon pepper (salt-free)


Pop popcorn as desired. Air-popped popcorn is lower in calories than oil-popped popcorn. Pour melted butter over warm popcorn. Combine remaining seasonings and sprinkle over popcorn; toss to mix. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in a 300-degree Fahrenheit oven for crispy popcorn. Put your portion in a bowl and savor the flavor.
