There are a couple ways to make homemade microwave popcorn in a brown bag. With oil or without. Without is obviously better for you, but with oil tastes a bit better. Try both ways and choose for yourself.

How to Make Homemade Microwave Popcorn:

With Oil:

  • ½ cup popcorn kernels
  • ½ tsp oil
  • brown lunch bag

Stir the oil and the popcorn kernels together and pour into the bag. Fold the top over twice and place into the microwave. It takes about 3 ½ minutes on high but listen for pauses of 1 or 2 seconds and take it out right when there starts to be a pause.

Without Oil:

  • ¼ cup popcorn kernels
  • brown lunch bag

Same as above minus the oil. Just put the kernels in the bag, fold the top over twice and place it into the microwave. Decrease the time to 2 ½ minutes listening for the 1 or 2 second pauses.

Side note: My 11 year old, Levi, doesn't like popcorn. We find it silly when we sit down for popcorn and movies and he chooses an apple. Good choice, don't get me wrong and I'm all sorts of proud of that choice but still...non-popcorn loving kid?  Lanet is the same way; no popcorn for her.  Crazy people!
