> 1 (3.3 oz) bag natural style microwave popcorn
> 4 tbsp butter, melted
> 1 tsp coarsely ground black pepper
> 1/8 tsp salt
> 1/2 tsp garlic powder
> 1/3 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese


Microwave the popcorn according to package directions. Transfer to a large bowl.
In a small bowl, whisk together the butter, pepper, salt, and garlic powder. Drizzle over popcorn and toss until well coated. Sprinkle with the Parmesan and toss to combine.


If you’d prefer to use an air popper, use ⅓ cup of popcorn kernels and skip step 1.
