20 Savory Popcorn Recipes to Make at Home

Family movie night? Family game night? Just a house full of kids for the summer? I’m raising my hand for all three!

I’m always on the lookout for frugal snacks, and making our own popcorn is an easy one.

For a little variety, we like trying new seasoning recipes. These 20 Savory Popcorn Recipes are a great way to try out different flavors and see what’s popular with your crowd.

Popcorn is such a thrifty snack, but it can get a little boring. I’ve always loved kettle corn, but I didn’t know there were so many varieties of spicy popcorn recipes to try.

As you click through these popcorn recipes, you’ll notice that everyone makes their popcorn differently.

Many mention the WhirlyPop (which I had never heard of before). I use a simple air popper that’s easy and frugal.

Some just put kernels in a brown paper bag into the microwave or cook it right on the stovetop.

Ready to make some popcorn?

We use an air popper because it’s a frugal way to make popcorn (and much healthier than the microwave variety).

What is your favorite way to spice up your popcorn? I love this list of savory popcorn recipes because there’s no shortage of sweets in our life. Give some of these a try!

Is popcorn a healthy snack?

One serving of 4 cups of air-popped, plain popcorn has just 120 calories. Plus, it’s a whole grain and contains fiber. It’s great for you!

These savory popcorn toppings are a great way to add flavor with spices and herbs instead of loads of butter and oil.

Another perk of making your own spicy popcorn at home is that you control the sodium and other ingredients, so it’s healthier than the processed snacks you find in stores.
