Homemade Microwave Popcorn
If you’re a popcorn eater, here’s a quick, cheap and easy way to enjoy your treat. I hate buying the boxes of microwave popcorn at the store. Super-expensive and full of questionable ingredients, and it smells kind of strange, too. But they make just the right amount, and it’s ready so fast.

Well, solution found!
- Place 2 to 2 1/2 Tablespoons of popcorn in a brown paper lunch bag.
- Fold the top closed and pop it in your microwave using the “popcorn” setting.
- When done popping, add your own toppings and voila!
Microwave popcorn for a fraction of the cost – YUM!
