How to pop popcorn in the microwave using just a paper bag?
Making popcorn has never been easier! This is one of my family's favorite easy and healthy snacks. Did you know you can make popcorn in the microwave in a brown paper bag? It's so easy and doesn't require any popcorn making equipment, just a microwave and Microwaveable Popcorn Paper Bag.
I'm not a huge microwave person, but this is completely an exception because this method is a lifesaver. You don’t need an air-popper, stovetop-popper, or any oil, and you can ditch the store-bought chemical-filled microwaveable popcorn, too! Making it in a paper bag in the microwave is silly easy, and you can have a whole-grain, fiber-filled snack on the regular with little effort on your part!
(I also love adding a little butter and salt. So delicious.)
HOW DO YOU KNOW WHEN THE POPCORN IS DONE?
The goal is to pop as many kernels as you can, without burning the popcorn. The time that will take varies depending on the age and water content of the kernels, your area’s climate, and your microwave.
Be sure you stick close by while it’s popping so you don’t end up with burnt popcorn. Listen as it begins to rapidly pop, and when there’s a one-second pause in popping, it’s done. Go ahead an open the microwave and remove the bag. click here
WHAT ARE SOME WAYS TO SPICE UP TRADITIONAL POPCORN?
Butter and salt are always a favorite topping, but you can also get creative and try recipes like my chili lime popcorn, the best sticky caramel corn, or this fun (and non-sticky) spiced caramel corn with white chocolate. All of them are delicious!
WHAT SIZE PAPER BAG DO I USE TO POP POPCORN?
You can use just about any size brown paper bag that will fit in your microwave. The little lunch sack size is easy to find, but there’s a size just a bit bigger which also works great.
