Old Bay Popcorn

Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes


  • 2 cups corn kernels
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons Old Bay seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon salt or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon pepper or to taste


  • In large pot over medium heat, heat the oil and place 3 kernels in the center of the pot. Wait for the 3 kernels to pop as it's a signal that your oil is hot enough to start.
  • Turn up the heat slightly more, toss in remaining corn kernels, cover the pot, and shake the pot continuously over the heat.
  • In a separate small pan on medium-low, melt the butter.
  • Once the corn kernels have slowed down their popping (listen for single pops, typically 5 to 7 minutes in), remove the popcorn from the heat and pour it into a large serving bowl.
  • Drizzle the butter over the popcorn and add in the Old Bay, the salt, and the pepper. Toss the popcorn until it's evenly covered with the butter and spices.
