Blue Cheese-Pecan Popcorn

Prep time 10 mins
Freeze time 8 hrs
Cook time 7 mins
Bake time 10 mins
Yield Makes about 4 cups
The next time you make popcorn, mix it up by adding blue cheese and chopped pecans. You'll never be able to go back to butter popcorn.


  • 1 (4-oz.) block blue cheese
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 (3.3-oz.) bag popped microwave popcorn (about 4 cups)
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

How to Make It

  1. Freeze blue cheese for at least 8 hours or up to 24 hours. Preheat oven to 325°. Melt butter in a small nonstick skillet over medium-low heat; add chopped pecans, and cook, stirring often, 5 to 7 minutes or until lightly toasted and fragrant. Place popcorn in a 15- x 10-inch jelly-roll pan. Grate frozen cheese to equal 1 cup. Sprinkle 1 cup grated blue cheese over popcorn. Toss popcorn mixture with toasted pecans and pepper. Bake at 325° for 10 minutes. Serve immediately.
