Football season is upon us (Go Texans!) *pause for the gasp that we're not Cowboys fans*. But football means tailgates, fantasy football and Super Bowl parties. And what's better at parties other than hot wings and beer? Pigs in a blanket! No, just kidding...Popcorn! Although the standard "movie" popcorn with extra butter is hard to beat we think this recipe might be right up there with it. Plus this recipe has bacon! And who in the world doesn't love bacon? I can't think of any dish that we wouldn't want to add bacon too, except maybe spaghetti. That doesn't sound to appealing. This popcorn has been tested and approved. Seriously, we licked the bowl clean. Tmi? With the sweetness from the butter to the savory of the bacon it can't miss. Plus, it has parmesan cheese and ranch dressing mix. I mean c'mon it's making our mouths water just writing this. Perfect snack for all the hungry guests you'll be having over. And if your not into football it's great for watching movies or just to snack on. Everyone will love it. Guaranteed!
Rocky Top Popcorn:
4 cooked bacon slices
1 bag buttered popcorn
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
2 tsp buttermilk ranch dressing mix
1/4 tsp black pepper
Chop up the cooked bacon into small pieces. Pop popcorn. Toss together the popcorn, bacon, parmesan cheese, and ranch dressing mix. Sprinkle with black pepper and serve immediately.
