I always knew not to buy the commercial microwave popcorn at the supermarket. It contains too much fat, and too many chemicals. Plus it's expensive! That's why I used a hot air popper. But lately, I tried a brown paper lunch bag, and it works too!
Two pounds of unpopped popcorn is $2.49, and 50 brown paper lunch bags sell for $2.99 at the drugstore. If you keep the bag clean, it can be used more than once.
1) Fill the paper bag with 1/4 cup of unpopped kernels.
2) Fold the opening of the bag over to close it.
3) Microwave for about 2 1/2 minutes. Stay close by to remove the popcorn after it stops popping. When you no longer hear popping, remove quickly so the popcorn doesn't burn.
I love eating the hot popcorn directly out of the bag. But feel free to toss it into a bowl and add melted butter, salt, garlic or cheese if you wish. Easy-peasy, single serving! Cheap too.
