Popcorn is ideal when you don’t want to spend much time preparing a snack especially when you have 10 minutes left before your favorite series episode begins. And having an electric skillet would make it faster.
It is simple, easy and does not need any experience but you have to know some tricks since popcorn could get burnt at any moment.
The funny thing about popcorn is seeing it popping up. So how about preparing your popcorn using an electric skillet? Besides enjoying popping, you won’t need to add oil, hence you get a healthy snack with low calorie and zero cholesterol.
The electric skillet is a good choice because it is large enough to fit the popcorn expansion and also because it is thin so it heats quickly.
For this, you will only need a cup of white popcorn.
Follow these steps to get the best homemade popcorn ever
1. Start by making a single layer of popcorn kernels on the bottom of your electric skillet.
2. Get the lid and cover the electric skillet after setting the temperature to 220 degrees Celsius.
3. In a few seconds, you would hear the kernels start popping. Wait until they stop popping, uncover the lid, unplug the skillet then your popcorn is ready to serve. Do not forget to shake the electric skillet every 20 seconds during its preparation.
For extra fun
You can dust nutritional yeast flakes if you like the cheesy flavor. Or you are free to add some zest by shaking Chili powder over your hot popcorn.
But if you really want a piece of advice, let me tell you that popcorn needs butter. This sounds weird, yes. I also know that this would take more time than expected but buttered popcorn is worthy. You won’t taste anything like popcorn coated with warm melted butter. The best kind of butter to use is the cultured butter thanks to its cheesy flavor. You will experience the reminiscent popcorn.
Melt a half stick of butter then pour it over the popcorn. But pour it carefully! In a circular motion, drizzle the melted butter slowly over the popcorn. It would be better if you got someone to stir popcorn while you are pouring.
The result you will obtain a delicious glorious popcorn bowl!
