1.
Remove any unpopped popcorn kernels. Put the popcorn in a food processor; cover and pulse until coarsely ground. Place the popcorn in a shallow dish and add thyme, salt, and pepper.
2.
Place the egg in another shallow dish; add 1 tablespoon water and beat lightly with a fork. Place flour in another shallow dish.
