Homemade Microwave Popcorn

Submitted by: JO_JO_BA

Introduction

Have a movie night or afternoon snack that’s as fast as store-bought bags – and whatever flavour you want goes! Have a movie night or afternoon snack that’s as fast as store-bought bags – and whatever flavour you want goes!

Ingredients

    ¼ cup popping corn kernels

Directions

Put popcorn kernels into a plain brown paper lunch bag.
Fold the “lip” of the bag over to seal and secure with a strip of Scotch tape.
Fold the bag over itself and crease well to keep folded.
Place in the microwave, folded side up, for 2-3 minutes – until there are less than 5 seconds between pops.
Carefully open the bag and serve, either plain or after adding flavours (such as salt, garlic powder, pepper, melted butter...)
