South of Beale Popcorn Topping


I am a total fan of Diners Drive-in’s and Dives… I am watching a show featuring South of Beale Gastro Bar in Memphis and they offer a table munch of spicy sweet popcorn that gave me a phat rolling pin. I had to share this with you . Let’s make a popcorn topping and try it out!

10oz air popped pop corn

1/2 cup brown sugar (dried and powdered in your food processor)

2 tsp kosher salt

2 tsp paprika

1 tsp cayenne pepper

1 tsp black pepper

1/2 tsp dry mustard

1/2 tsp cumin

1 tsp ground granulated garlic

1/4 cup melted butter

Mix the dry spice ingredients in a bowl. Pour the melted butter over the popped pop corn and toss gently. Sprinkle the spicy sweet topping over the popcorn and enjoy. It is totally great… LOVE IT.

      That is a good question…. Brown sugar will automatically dry with direct exposure to air. Leave it in an open bowl and the molasses content will glaze.
