The perfect game day snack with Orville Redenbacher popcorn. #gameday #football #snack #popcorn
Football season is in full swing, and my house couldn’t be happier about it. We’ve spent each and every Sunday this fall camped out on the couch, changing channels between games, and now that it’s time for bowl games and playoffs, we need to step up our game-day routine just a bit. That’s where Orville Redenbacher’s® Movie Theater Butter popcorn comes in. I wanted to a whip up a crave-worthy snack that was great for sharing, but I wanted to elevate it a bit so it felt worthy of serving to our friends at our next viewing party.

I was inspired by the iconic popcorn frico that’s on the menu at one of my favorite restaurants in New York, but I wanted to give it a Mexican street-corn twist. Melted parmesan cheese, delicious popcorn, a dash of chili powder, a squeeze of lime juice and a drizzle of sour cream complete the bite-sized snack that makes game day just a little more fun. Keep scrolling to get the full (and super simple!) recipe.

The perfect game day snack with Orville Redenbacher popcorn. #gameday #football #snack #popcornIngredients:

1. Pour the grated parmesan into a small nonstick pack. Turn the burner to high heat and allow the parmesan to start to melt.

2. As the parmesan melts, gently scrape the sides with a spatula to loosen the cheese. Wiggle the pan slightly as the cheese continues to melt—it should come away from the pan quite easily.

3. Once the cheese has melted all the way through, turn off the burner. Then, pour some of your popped popcorn onto the melted cheese and gently press down.

4. Place a plate upside down over the pan and flip to transfer the frico to the plate. Be careful because the pan will be quite hot!

5. Let the frico cool completely, then cut into six wedges. Top with a dash of chili powder and a drizzle of sour cream. Finish with sprigs of fresh cilantro and lime wedges for a delicious punch of citrus.

The perfect game day snack with Orville Redenbacher popcorn. #gameday #football #snack #popcornI’d been wanting to try my hand at making my own version of the popcorn frico, and Orville Redenbacher’s provided the perfect excuse. I love that it contains no artificial preservatives, flavors, or dyes, and that it pops up lighter and fluffier than ordinary popcorn. If you know me, you know that popcorn is one of my very favorite foods, so I found it fascinating to learn that in 1952, Orville Redenbacher hand selected a small group of family farmers to grow his exclusive kernel. Generations later, farmers like Richard Overmyer continue to grow that same special kernel, which is exactly what I used in this very recipe. Pretty cool.

Because I love popcorn so much, I’m especially excited to share this recipe with my friends and family for our next football viewing party. And I love that it feels a little elevated, so it’s a snack worthy of a special occasion (and hopefully a bit of a celebration if our team wins!).

Triple Oreo Ice Cream Sandwich Recipe

Triple Oreo ice cream sandwiches with Oreos baked right into the cookies. Get the full recipe at HomemadeBanana.com #recipe #oreo #dessert #icecreamsandwichSometimes too much of a good thing is just an even better thing. That’s definitely true in the case of these triple Oreo ice cream cookies. If you’re keeping score at home, that’s crushed up Oreos baked into the cookies, whole Oreos baked into those same cookies and a filling of Oreo ice cream. It’s a study in playful decadence and it’s just as good as it sounds.
