Homemade Microwave Popcorn!!!

This is one of those moments that will FOREVER alter my life!  I'm not talking quite as big as my salvation moment, but CLOSE!  I have learned the secret of making microwave popcorn from scratch!  For a penny-pincher like me this is EARTH SHATTERING!  Do you know how much microwave popcorn costs???  It is a RIP-OFF!  I never buy it.  Yet then I stand in the kitchen hemming and hawing about how badly do I want a snack???  Bad enough to dirty a HUGE pot for popping popcorn???  Nah...  I'll eat something easier (and likely MUCH MORE unhealthy than popcorn).  So stumbling (with the help of Googgle) upon a homemade recipe was like finding the Holy Grail!!!

Let me change your world TOO!  Here's what you need:

1 brown paper bag
1/4 cup popcorn kernel
salt (to taste)
1/2 tsp. olive oil
1 small piece of tape
butter, melted (to taste)

Here's what you do:

Put popcorn kernels in brown paper bag; shake a little salt on them; shake up the bag.  Drizzle olive oil over them; shake up the bag; tape the bag closed.

Put the bag into your microwave on high for 3 - 5 min (depending on your microwave).  When the popping slows down it is ready.

Pour into bowl.  Drizzle melted butter over top and add more salt.  VOILA!  Your life has been changed!  You will NEVER have to buy microwave popcorn AGAIN!

  1. You can skip the tape =^) I've found just folding the top of the bag down a couple times is enough to keep it closed. I only do 2 TBS of popcorn at a time (er, is that the equivilent of a quarter cup? LOL) and don't salt the kernels, just the end product...best way to make it!
