Gouda Garlic Popcorn

Photo: Iain Bagwell; Styling: Dan Becker
Yield Serves 6
Time: About 10 minutes. Our version of cheesy popcorn puts the other orange-powdered-cheese type to shame. We prefer the flavor of smoked gouda (and like how it melts over the still-hot popcorn), but any semifirm cheese will work too.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup popcorn kernels
  • 2 cups finely shredded smoked gouda cheese
  • Garlic salt

How to Make It

  1. Heat oil in a wide pot over high heat, add popcorn, cover, and shake pot often. When popping slows, remove from heat until popping stops. Sprinkle popcorn with cheese while still in pot. Transfer to a serving bowl and sprinkle with garlic salt to taste, tossing well. Serve immediately.
