That looks good!

I don't think I'm going to have popcorn for breakfast, though.

Hmmm. Well, I guess you could use it as a sort of crouton on a salad?

One thing I will suggest, which I haven't done in ages, is if you have young children, buy one of those dried ears of corn that you can buy for decorative purposes in the fall. Gather your kids around the microwave, and nuke it! Kids love to see the ear of corn "popping".

I like putting a little freshly ground black pepper on popcorn - it really picks it up.

Popcorn instead of crackers in soup.

Try sprinkling Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing mix on your popcorn! I keep an empty shaker spice bottle full of the mix for my popcorn. Yumm.

DW's family used to make this all the time for an Easter treat. It's called Granny Goose Popcorn. Now I'm not saying it's healthy. But once a year won't kill you, and kids love it. Here's a link for the recipe.

Kettle popping corn in evoo makes it healthier than regular oil and tastier than air popped corn. We like to add Tabasco to the oil before it's popped for an extra kick.

My husband dashes his popcorn with tabasco sauce. I like to sprinkle parmesan chees on mine, no oil needed the cheese sticks in the puffs of popcorn. Sometimes for a savory taste we use garlic salt. And hubby has a bacon salt he will use when he feels like it.
