Bacon Ranch Popcorn

I love the fall but most of all I love October! The smell, the chill in the air. NO BUGS!  The fall is the best time of the year.

 

Did you know that it is National Popcorn Month, as well? Yes! I love a good batch of popcorn. I loved that there are so many recipes and places to find some great popcorn.  You definitely need to make sure that you observe your littles with popcorn and it may not be suitable for the very young ones.  My love affair with popcorn started with the brand Jiffy Pop! I don’t know about you, but buying the aluminum foiled pan and placing it over the flame, to watch it pop, was exciting as a kid. I tried it with my daughter last year and she was over the moon about it.  The best 2-5 minutes! My secret is to make sure that you shake that pan hard over medium heat.

 

Now, if you are not a Jiffy Pop sort of person, the Boy Scouts have the best brand of popcorn to buy. My son was in scouts and we had to sell popcorn. I noticed that just about everybody wanted to buy that popcorn because of how delicious it is, and I thought, that was a stretch. I decided to buy some one night and just like the Girl Scout cookies , I was hooked and broke. If you do decide to try their popcorn, try the White Cheddar or Butter Lovers.

 

Now, I will let you in on my favorite top-secret popcorn recipe.  It is, “Bacon Ranch Popcorn”.   I usually use turkey bacon , instead of regular bacon but you can play with.  Now, I am hungry for this, while I am typing this. I wonder if it is too soon to watch, ” Charlie Brown’s Halloween Special”?  Comment in the section what is your favorite way to eat popcorn! I am open to suggestions!
