We eat a ton of popcorn in our house. We usually prefer using the hot air popper. Microwave popcorn is laden with all sorts of unhealthy ingredients and I just can’t stand the smell! I found this idea on Pinterest. It’s one of those simple ideas that works beautifully. It’s also great when you want a single serving of popcorn. The recipe below is for a decent single serving. I use a sandwich sized brown bag, but if you’re looking for a nice bowl of popcorn to share, then just double the recipe and use it with a larger brown paper bag.
Paper-bag Microwave Popcorn
- 1/4 cup popcorn kernels
- paper lunch bag
Place 1/4 cup of popcorn kernels into lunch sized paper bag. Fold the top of the bag over twice. Place in microwave, standing up, and cook for 3 minutes. Stop the microwave once the popping slows to one to two kernels a second.
