The Last Stovetop Popcorn Recipe You Will Ever Need

You can stop looking. I have the last stovetop popcorn recipe you will ever need right here! Brown butter and herbs on popcorn? Yes please!

I am a self professed popcorn-aholic. Could eat it all day long.

Okay – well that and pancakes. I have a thing for those too ;).

About eight years ago, I was at a local bar and they had the most amazing popcorn I had ever tasted on their appetizer menu.

I was a tad pushy with the waitress in getting the herb popcorn recipe out of her.

Hey – a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do – am I right??

Homemade Stovetop Popcorn is a HUGE Hit in my House

I did the best I could replicating what little information the waitress gave me regarding the ingredients. But tbh- I might even like mine better!

I have been making homemade stovetop popcorn since I was in high school and luckily passed on this craving to my kids ;).

When my fellow popcorn-aholic daughters come home – they often ask “mom – can you make THE popcorn?”.

So if that’s any indication of how yummy this herb popcorn is – you should be craving it tonight!

When my oldest daughter was still living at home, it was a tradition of ours to make this herb popcorn and watch The Bachelor together every Monday night ;).

Tips for the Best Homemade Stovetop Popcorn

  • Use a good heavy bottomed pot. I am quite partial to my All Clad pots. They are most certainly an investment but about fifteen years ago – I started slowly replacing my old pots and pans with this quality brand. If you do it slowly like I did – you don’t feel the burn of the price quite so much 😉
  • Don’t use high heat! I usually keep my burner on medium to medium-high. You do not want your oil to overheat and taste smoky (or worse yet – start on fire!!)
  • The type of oil you use matters. You need to use an oil with a high smoke point. I love the Orville Redenbacher popcorn vegetable oil personally. However I have seen other recipes using olive oil or avocado oil…
  • Kernels also matter. Again – all things are personal choices – HOWEVER I have found that Orville Redenbacher’s yellow kernels pop and taste the best!! I am wanting to try the Trader Joe’s organic kernels one of these days though ;).

Experiment with Flavors

I don’t really veer away from this recipe anymore because well – yea it really is that good!

However, I still love white cheddar or parmesan cheese popcorn.

And caramel popcorn (but not making it – that just sounds waaaayyyy too messy for me!).

I have also added a delicious truffle salt instead of my regular salt before.

I found this salt while wandering the streets of Portland a few years ago.

It is sadly not available online, however – I imagine any fancy grocery market near you probably has a black truffle salt you can try!

Funny thing is – I found this salt while visiting my youngest at college up there. And she is NOT A FAN of it when I add it to “the” popcorn.

Soooo – I clearly do not do that very often 🤷‍♀️.
