Cheesy popcorn
The healthier alternative to prepackaged cheesy popcorn.

2 tbsp olive oil

200g popping corn

400g cheddar cheese, grated

1 tsp mustard (optional)

1 tsp salt

½ tsp pepper

Pour your oil into a large saucepan on a medium to high heat.

Add your corn kernels and make sure they are all coated with the oil.

Cook for about 6 minutes or until they stop popping. Give the pan a little shake every now and then so they don’t stick to the bottom.

Remove from heat and sprinkle on a little, but not all, of your salt. Set aside.

In the same pan melt your cheese and pepper together about 5 minutes.

When melted pour over your popcorn and season with salt. Leave to cool before serving.
