Would you believe me if I told you I didn't like popcorn? I mean, I didn't dislike it, but it certainly wasn't something I was looking for or drooling over. Forgive me for saying this, but there were a few times when I went to the movies and didn't eat a piece of popcorn.
Don't worry, I've since made up for those days. Now I go to the cinema and spend the entire movie with my face in a bag of popcorn. After all, they wouldn't do DVD rentals if you were supposed to see the movie at the theater. No, the theater is for popcorn. Don't try to tell me otherwise.
Making popcorn at home is super easy, but it's hard to get that buttery movie flavor. I'm not sure what they use in their popcorn, but it's not real butter. In fact, it's probably best if you don't know what it is. At the same time, I would be grossed out and start an internet search for an online store where I could buy some of my own but nasty fake butter flavorings.
So let's get away from the buttery popcorn. Let's take a step back from the popcorn bag. Let's put aside those little popcorn stirrers they sell all over the place now. Let's fry some bacon and pop our corn on the drip. Let's all rejoice in the bacon and sprinkle a fair amount of crumbled bacon in our bag of popcorn. Let's live happily ever after.

- 10 slices of bacon
- 1/3 cup popcorn kernels
Dice the raw bacon and toss it in a large, hot frying pan. Stir frequently and continue frying until crisp. Remove the piece of bacon from the skillet and add the drips to a large saucepan over medium-low heat. Place 3 popcorn kernels in the bacon fat and wait for one to pop. When one of the cores appears, its fat is hot enough. Add the remaining popcorn, cover the pan with a lid, and shake, shake, shake while the rest of the popcorn bursts. Remove from heat and add diced bacon to popcorn. Get out if you want and enjoy!
