DIY Microwave Popcorn in a Bag

diy microwave popcorn in a bag

Our family loves popcorn!  I personally love trying new flavors with mine but the rest of the family prefers the traditional butter flavor.  So I usually end up popping enough for everyone and then doing my own thing in a separate bowl.  I like to add parmesan, chipotle seasoning and salt to mine, a Southwestern Parmesan flavor. What’s your favorite popcorn seasonings?

I must add that after showing my husband my creation he gave me this, “you’re amazing” look when I told him I popped it in a bag in the microwave!

Well, microwave popcorn just got easier!  All you need are some corn kernels, paper bag, salt, butter and of course a microwave.  You might burn the first bag to figure out how many minutes your microwave takes to pop it. I’m sharing that from experience.

DIY Microwave Popcorn

  • 1/3 cup popcorn kernels
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Brown Paper bag

1. Place all of the above ingredients in a paper bag.

2. Fold the bag a couple of times and staple.

3. Shake the bag so all of the kernels get coated.

4. Microwave between 2- 2.5 minutes.  Every microwave is different so start with 2 and if it still needs more time add another 30 seconds. My microwave only took 1 minute and 35 seconds to pop my bag.
