    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!

      What a NEAT idea -- forget the traditional microwave popcorn and use a brown paper bag to pop plain popcorn kernals!

      Microwave Popcorn in brown paper bag. I worry though I was told a long time ago that paper bags release toxins when heated.
