This is an adaptation from allrecipes.com. I adjusted the amounts and cooking time, because who is going to eat 20 cups of popcorn at one sitting? Yikes.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.


• 10 cups popped popcorn
• 1/4 cup butter melted
• 1 teaspoon paprika
• 1 teaspoon lemon pepper
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
• 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
• Pinch cayenne pepper


• Pop ze corn. Arrange said corn in a roasting pan.
In a small bowl, stir together the melted butter, paprika, lemon pepper, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and cayenne pepper. Pour over the popcorn and stir until it is somewhat evenly coated.
• Bake for 7-8 minutes, stirring a couple of times during baking process. Remove from the oven.

Enjoy with gusto and vim and vigor.
