Everything Bagel isn’t only for bagels. This seasoning can flavor a bunch of dishes, including popcorn.

You can make your own blend of poppy seeds, sesame seeds, garlic, onion, and salt, or just get one at Trader Joe’s. 

Aside from the seasoning, you’ll also be adding garlic and butter. It couldn’t get any better than that.

French onion soup mix in my popcorn? It may seem strange, but hear me out. The soup mix adds such a wonderful flavor! 

A packet of French onion soup mix contains dry onion flakes, onion powder, parsley, paprika, pepper, celery seed, and beef bouillon granules.

Now, picture all those flavors in your popcorn. Amazing, right?

“Huh?” That’s my first reaction when I saw this recipe. But when I tried, man, I was blown away.

Instead of just sugar and butter, you’ll add margarita mix for the popcorn glaze.

The result is similar to caramel corn, but with a bit of boozy flavor. Let’s get the party started!
