You are going to love my Vermont Cheddar Bacon Popcorn Recipe! We love salty snacks in a variety of flavors at our house.  We don’t buy a lot of packaged salty snacks because they are often loaded with artificial ingredients and are not gluten-free.  But, we still love to enjoy them so I have been making my own.

Since my daughter is gluten intolerant, I really prefer to bring food into the house that she can enjoy as well. JOLLY TIME Pop Corn is a whole grain snack that is gluten free and can easily be created in a variety of delicious flavors that the whole family will enjoy. I also love knowing that JOLLY TIME Pop Corn is a non-GMO product! That is so important in my family.

  • 1/3 cup JOLLY TIME Pop Corn kernels
  • 1/2 cup grated Vermont Cheddar Cheese
  • 1/2 cup finely crumbled, cooked bacon
  • oil for popping


  1. Add the oil to a heavy pot with a tight fitting lid.
  2. Add the JOLLY TIME Pop Corn kernels and pop on high until they are all popped.
  3. Quickly sprinkle the grated Vermont cheddar cheese and the bacon pieces over the top of the JOLLY TIME Pop Corn while the popcorn is still hot.
  4. If you need to, cover the popcorn with tin foil and put it in a warm oven to completely melt the cheese.
  5. Serve Vermont Cheddar Bacon Popcorn warm and enjoy

This popcorn is a delicious grown-up treat for movie night or anytime you’re entertaining.   We chose aged Vermont sharp cheddar cheese (of course) to top our JOLLY TIME Pop Corn, however, it would be equally delicious topped with Parmesan or even blue cheese instead.  Go with your family’s favorite tastes and enjoy.

Tips for storing popcorn:

I’ve heard people say that popcorn kernels should be stored in the refrigerator, but in many cases, this is the worst possible place to store them. Most refrigerators have very little humidity inside them and this can cause the kernels to dry out. Instead, store popcorn kernels in an air-tight jar with a lid in a cool cupboard. If you need to store popcorn kernels for a long period of time, they can be stored for up to one year in the freezer. To store popcorn that has already been popped, you can keep it in a Ziploc plastic bag for a few days.
