remember the time i made brown butter & crispy sage popcorn? how great was that day.
my affection for brown butter has yet to escape me, and really why should it?
my affection for things that taste like cinnamon toast has also yet to escape me?
so when the kids requested a big bowl of popcorn to accompany their 'cloudy with a chance of meatballs' movie date, i decided to give in to my own selfish desires and blend the two, to create a highly addictive bowl everything i love in life.
brown butter cinnamon-sugar popcorn
1/2 cup popcorn kernels
1/4 cup salted butter
2 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/4 teaspoons cinnamon
use an air popper to pop the popcorn. set aside.
in small bowl mix together cinnamon and sugar. set aside.
in a small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. when butter starts to foam, swirl the skillet until butter turns golden brown 1-2 minutes.
drizzle butter over popcorn and sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar mixture, tossing to coat.
