“In my quest to make my favorite snack more flavorful, I found a variation of this recipe on the Jolly Time web site. Your popcorn will need a bit of moisture to get the blend to adhere. It can come from the oil (if any) used to pop or from adding butter, margarine or a low calorie butter substitute.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 tablespoons italian seasoning
  • 3 tablespoons asiago cheese, finely grated (Romano or Parmesan would work as well)
  • 12 teaspoon garlic powder


  1. Place the Italian herb blend and garlic powder in a spice grinder, coffee grinder or mini chopper. Pulse until the herb leaves are broken up.
  2. Grate the cheese and blend with the ground spices.
  3. Sprinkle on hot popcorn to taste.
  4. If you are making a big batch, doubling or tripling the recipe, spread out on a plate and allow it to air dry for 2 to 3 hours. Store in an air tight jar in the fridge.
