One of the first applications some people think about when they try Bacon Salt is popcorn. Yet just taking a bottle of Bacon Salt and dumping it on Orville Redenbacher isn't the way to go (IMHO). The best baconey popcorn is made as follows:
- Pop your popcorn in vegetable oil on the stovetop or in an air popper. I prefer the stovetop - we actually use that Whirly Pop that someone gave us a wedding present quite often.
- In a small saucepan, mix Original Bacon Salt and butter, just enough to coat. Once the popcorn is done, pour and vigorously shake the popcorn and butter.
- Instead of butter, you could mix Original Bacon Salt with popcorn salt (we use Johnny's Popcorn Salt), which gives it that same buttery taste without the fat - but the fatty version is significantly better as with anything.
