I absolutely LOVE popcorn.

I think it's safe to say it's my favorite snack... well one of my favorite snacks...actually there are quite a few, like these Baked Curried Chickpeas or this Tomato and Avocado Bruschetta. I could go on and on when it comes to food, but back to the popcorn. I am definitely more of a savory than sweet kind of girl. As you know, I like to get creative in the kitchen and I love food with lots of flavor. I've gotta say, I wouldn't turn down good old butter or olive oil with a sprinkle of salt, but today I'm rounding up three of my absolute favorite combos for popcorn toppings that I know you'll love if you're looking for something a little different.

Now go make yourself a big bowl of popcorn and get ready for the best movie night of your life.

Popcorn 3 Ways:

Sriracha Lime, Rosemary Parmesan and Olive Oil with Fresh Cracked Pepper and Sea Salt

Popcorn:

Use your preferred method for popping popcorn. I use a Whirly Pop, stover top popper. If you don't have one of these you can use an electric air popper, cook it on the stove top in a pot as shown here, or try this trick for making your own microwave popcorn from Thekitchn.com!

Spicy Tangy Sriracha Lime

Ingredients

- ~12-15 cups of popcorn, popped (yield from 1/2 cup of kernels)

- 2 Tbsp. butter

- 2 Tbsp. Sriracha

- Juice of 1 lime

- 1/4 tsp of salt

Directions

1. Place Popcorn in a large bowl

2. Melt butter in a small sauce pan over medium heat, stirring to make sure it doesn't burn. Once melted, add Sriracha and lime juice and stir until evenly mixed.

3. Slowly pour the butter mixture over the popcorn, tossing lightly to coat evenly. Sprinkle with salt and toss again to distribute.

Decadent Rosemary Parmesan

Ingredients

- ~12-15 cups of popcorn, popped (yield from 1/2 cup of kernels)

Directions

1. Place Popcorn in a large bowl

2. Melt butter in a small sauce pan over medium heat, stirring to make sure it doesn't burn. Once melted, mix in the Rosemary.

3. Slowly pour the butter mixture over the popcorn, tossing lightly to coat evenly.
