We tried something new over the weekend, homemade microwave popcorn. Typically I make popcorn on top of the stove. And, as I have said before, I like sweet popcorn the best. But, my oldest prefers the regular popcorn with butter and salt. So, I tried this specifically for her.
I can't believe how simple this is. So, simple in fact that my kids can make it on their own. And, of course, I love that! Just throw some popcorn into a paper bag and microwave. We made two batches to feed the four of us and we added melted butter and salt. My oldest was in heaven. I have a feeling she is going to be making this for herself all of the time. And, best of all, it is a super cheap snack.
¼ cup bulk popcorn
1 paper lunch bag
Pour pop corn into lunch bag. Fold over top of bag three times, tightly creasing it each time. Stand bag upright in microwave. Cook on high until all the kernels have popped. (My microwave pops all of the kernels in about 3 minutes and 15 seconds.) Enjoy immediately with melted butter and salt. Serves 2.
