    Did you know you can Make your Own Microwave Popcorn in under 4 minutes? Store bought Microwave popcorn is convenient, but it happens to be loaded with fats/oils/sodium, etc. You can make your own healthier, dirt cheap microwave popcorn, complete with various flavors of seasoning in under 4 minutes. ♥--would be great for after school, or even with school lunches sense I am not a huge fan of chips.

a how to make your own microwave popcorn with a brown paper bag at home

Microwave Popcorn Trick ~ Learned this from Alton Brown 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. Even a bigger wow factor for students if you use 2 staples to keep the bag closed. It's metal in the microwave, but because of the size of the staples and the distance between (keep the staples several inches apart), no sparking or arcing occurs

    Check the bottom of paper bag first make sure it is NOT made of recycled materials. If it is it will catch on fire in your microwave- this is the voice of experience!!

    Or skip the microwave altogether and just use an air popper. :)

  • Little Yellow

    I do this but I wet my hands then rub my wet hands on the outside of the bag and then pop it so it doesn't catch fire. Never leave the microwave unattended.

Glass bowl + ceramic plate + popcorn kernels = perfectly popped popcorn in the microwave. No bag. No butter or oil. Nothing to throw away afterward. And even no un-popped kernels. Take 1/4 cup of dry popcorn kernels and place in the bottom of a microwave-safe glass bowl. Place a microwave-safe plate on top of the bowl. Plate should be wide enough to go beyond the rim of the bowl. Microwave for 2 minutes 45 seconds. Watch in glory as your popcorn pops perfectly into little puffs of heaven.
