Poll: Popcorn

Popcorn is popular in many places, partly because it expands enormously when it pops and partly because plain popcorn is very low calorie per cup if there are no toppings. Of course, most people prefer to have toppings on their popcorn. There is little doubt that in the United States, butter and salt are the most popular toppings, usually used together.

There are a lot more possible toppings, though. To name just a few:

Ranch style: Add an ounce of powdered ranch dressing mix to 10 cups of popcorn and stir it well.

Garlic or onion: Add 1 teaspoon garlic powder or onion powder to 1/4 cup melted butter and pour this over the popcorn.

Cheesy: Sprinkle 2 cups of cheese over 15 cups of popped popcorn, pop it in a 350 F oven for about 5 minutes or until the cheese melts, and stir.

Spicy: To 1/4 cup of melted butter, mix cayenne powder, chili powder, or paprika (the amount to taste). Mix well with the popcorn.

Barbecue: Mix 1/4 cup melted butter with cumin, garlic powder, chili powder, salt, and a small amount of sugar (all seasonings to taste). Stir well in 15 cups popcorn.

This poll is about, you guessed it, fried rutabaga. Just kidding. The poll is about popcorn.
