Garlic powder- to taste
Grated Parmesan (do not exceed 1 tablespoon)
Onion Powder- to taste

Place your saucepan on the stovetop and heat to medium temperature. While it is heating, add one kernel and cover the pan.
You will know when to add the rest of the kernels when the one in the pan pops. Once it pops, add in the remaining kernels and vigorously shake over the heat source. Do this until you hear the popping stop, or at least slow down.
Pour the popcorn into a large bowl and top with all the ingredients you want to add. Then, toss or mix the contents to spread the flavor
