Easy Popcorn Trick

This isn’t really a recipe but I couldn’t resist sharing this popcorn technique. Did you know that store bought microwave popcorn is loaded with harmful chemicals? With this method you don’t even need any oil, just the kernels and a paper bag! It works like a charm!

Easy Popcorn Trick

  • 1/4 cup popcorn kernels
  • Brown paper lunch bag
  • Melted butter & salt (optional, but clearly necessary đŸ™‚ )


  1. Put popcorn kernels in the lunch bag. Fold the top of the lunch bag three times. Place the popcorn in the microwave and set it for 2 minutes and 30 seconds.
  2. Keep a very close eye on the popcorn and listen for the popping to slow down. Once the popping slows, pull it out of the microwave. It usually takes a bit less than 2 and a half minutes.
  3. Pour popcorn in a bowl and add melted butter and salt, if desired.
