The Princess and the Frog

By a cousin's request, here is a popcorn recipe fit for a frog!!... frogcess? prin...og.... hmmm...
*awkward jazz hands*

Jazzy Gumbo Popcorn

3 T rendered bacon grease
1/2 c. popcorn kernels
Packet of Gumbo/Creole Seasoning to taste

Make your own*!
*this recipe makes 1 3/4 cups (22 tablespoons) obviously you will not need all of this but you can put it in a jar and use it for other recipes... which I am sure you put together all by your smart self. 

2 T onion powder
2 T garlic powder
2 T dried oregano
2 T dried basil
1 T dried thyme
1 T black pepper
1 T white pepper
1 T cayenne pepper
5 T paprika
3 T salt
1 T celery powder
1 T savory

and then...
1 T butter (or more if you're crazy like that)
1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp tabasco sauce/hot sauce (or more if...again... you're crazy like that)

Add the oil and popcorn kernels to a heavy 3- to 4-quart saucepan with a lid. Shake the pan to coat the kernels with oil. The kernels should cover the bottom of the pan in a single layer.

Cover the pan and place it over medium high heat. When the corn begins to pop, lift it slightly from the heat and shake the pan every so often (does not have to be continuous), holding the lid in place, until the popping begins to slow, about 3 to 4 minutes. Pour into bowl or bag big enough to toss further ingredients.

Melt the butter. Then mix in Worcestershire sauce and hot sauce. Sprinkle Gumbo/Creole seasoning to taste and toss. Now go kiss a frog, princess, you're ready for a movie!
