I am all about finding a new way to make something and it’s always a plus when I can do it and make it healthier. This recipe for homemade microwave popcorn fits both of those bills!
Let me tell you how I discovered my secret to Homemade Microwave Popcorn. It’s really easy to do, and I wish I would have known a long time ago how easy and inexpensive it is!
Our heating and cooling unit has been out for a while so we are not using the stove to fix any food. We are using our microwave, the grill, and just eating cold stuff or going out to eat (it’s a rough sacrifice I know!). Anyway, that is when I discovered that you can make homemade microwave popcorn with 2 simple ingredients:
- popcorn kernels
- brown paper bags
Here is how you can make your own homemade microwave popcorn!
- 1/2 cup of popcorn kernels
- 1 brown paper lunch bag
Take your kernels and place in the brown bag. Fold it over twice and place in the microwave and hit your popcorn button.
Listen to kernels pop and remove once the popping has slowed to 1 to 2 seconds in between popping.
Season with fresh butter and salt for the perfect popped taste every time!
I never thought that I could actually pull this off, but it is super good and super easy to make homemade microwave popcorn. Since making this, I have tried my hand at all kinds of yummy foods in the microwave and have been successful.
What about you? Do you have certain foods that you have experimented with in the microwave?
