Pecorino & Thyme Popcorn

Pecorino & Thyme Popcorn

I love popcorn! It’s pretty high up on my list of favorite snacks. Cheese popcorn, specifically, is a staple in my diet. This pecorino & thyme popcorn has become one of my favorite movie night treats. It pairs perfectly with a glass (bottle) of champagne!


  • 6 cups popped popcorn
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme, minced
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated black pepper
  • 1/3 cup grated pecorino cheese (or parmesan if you can’t find pecorino)


Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Once melted, remove from heat and stir in the thyme, salt and pepper.

Place popcorn in a large bowl, drizzle the melted butter mixture over the popcorn, sprinkle on the pecorino and stir until the popcorn is coated. Enjoy while watching holiday movies with a chilled glass of champagne!
