Truffled Popcorn

DSC_4131

Popcorn is one of the easiest snack foods to alternate depending on mood. Caramel, cheese, and kettle corn are popular varieties, and however appetizing movie theater popcorn may be pre-movie viewing (plus that overpriced slurpee), its hoardes of butter and chemicals soon leave their mark. This truffled popcorn, created by chef Patrick O’Connell of The Inn at Little Washington, may not be healthy, but is a gourmet twist that includes truffle oil, certainly the MVP of this popcorn. Recipe below. Enjoy!!
