Alton Brown's recipe for Microwave Popcorn in a bag! I do this all the time now... so inexpensive and it's DELICIOUS and HEALTHY! I'd definitley recommend just folding the bag though skip the staples. After a while, it causes hot spots to start in your microwave!
This is the only way we make popcorn now! so yummy! Microwave Popcorn Trick — you never have to buy microwave popcorn again! Add 1/3 cup popcorn kernels to a brown paper bag, fold the bag over twice then heat in a microwave — folded side down — for 2 minutes. THAT’S IT! Fresh popped popcorn without any fuss, ready for you to flavor as desired or eat completely bare.
