Sean made this last night while we were watching a show. I told him that I would only eat a few, because it was too late for me to eat food. But after the first a few popcorns, I just couldn't stop putting more into my mouth until the whole bowl was all in my tummy. Because it was too delicious to only have two or three. Sun-dried tomato, cheese and basil made these popcorn heavenly delicious, and they were a lot healthier than the ones sold in the movie theater. So even I had the whole bowl of it, I didn't feel I was overwhelmed. If you happen to look for some delicious popcorn recipes, you have to give this one a try. You won't be disappointed!

I'm a big popcorn fan and often it's a meal for me...this savory one would be perfect for that!(I pop mine in the microwave in a gadget made for oil!)

Bonnie, we use the hot-air popcorn popper, and it's no oil needed either, just hot air. Very convenient, a lot less calories and much healthier. This recipe is like a meal, it's savory and delicious :)
