DIY Microwave Popcorn

I'm a huge fan of eating popcorn for a snack. I love that it's full of fiber but not calories! I've already talked about how easy it is to cook on the stove-top, but sometimes I need to cook it even faster. I recently learned that you can make your own super-quick popcorn by dumping some kernels in a paper lunch bag, adding a tablespoon of olive oil and seasoning, squeezing the excess air out of the bag, shaking to distribute the oil and seasoning, closing it with a little piece of tape, and popping it in the microwave (following the same directions you would for a traditional bag of microwavable popcorn).

Deliciously easy!

I do the same thing! I pre-measure the bags and keep them in my desk at work. 1/4 cup popcorn is the right amount for the bag I use. I keep the oil in a contain, add when ready. I staple my bag shut, with one standard staple, after folding the bag over once. I never have issues with the staple in the microwave. I estimate it costs 7 cents per bag. It yields 3 cups.
