Popcorn Hack

So, I prefer my popcorn on the stove with oil. Don’t get me wrong the popcorn bags are DELICIOUS! However, they can be a big fatty and honestly COVID has added to my waistline. The best I can do, because I have tried, is maintain the added 10 lbs. Yes, I could get the low fat or Skinny version but it tastes funny to me. So I figured, the bagged popped corn is litterally in a BAG. So I decided to try it JUST in a BAG.

  1. Paper Sandwich bag.
  2. Popcorn
  3. Salt/sugar
  4. Microwave

YES! It worked!

I put 2-3 tablespoons of popcorn kernels in the bottom of the paper bag and folded the top of the bag.

Then I microwaved the bag for 2 1/2 minutes until the kernel slowed/stopped popping. I did stay by the microwave as I have never done this before and didn’t want to smell burnt popcorn or bag all day. But YES! it worked. It was a little bland of course due to the lack of salt, butter or sugar. But you can doll it up anyway you like. Enjoy!
