Popcorn is a universal favorite when it comes to snack time at our house. Isabella received an air popper popcorn maker for Christmas and we’ve been making our own popcorn at home ever since.

James likes his popcorn with extra salt — I used to joke when I was pregnant (and trying to watch my sodium) that I would get contact swelling just sitting next to him while he was eating his salty popcorn. The girls and I also like caramel corn and sweet popcorn varieties. (Funfetti? Yes, please!)

Savory Popcorn Recipes

I know buttery popcorn with a sprinkle of salt is the classic savory popcorn flavor, but you can do so much more with this easy snack! Popcorn is ultra crunchy but almost flavorless, making it the perfect base for shredded cheeses, herbs and spices, citrus zest, and more! 

Here are some savory popcorn recipes to get you started:

There’s something so addicting about sweet popcorn topped with flaky sea salt. The following recipes can be viewed as popcorn desserts, or as indulgent after-school snacks. Who knew you could do so much with plain popcorn?!

I love some gourmet popcorn! I'm going to make the pbj for my son's graduation party (using raspberry jelly to match his school colors). My go-to for savory is to spray plain popcorn with a bit of cooking spray and toss with Ranch seasoning. I can't wait to try some of these!
