How To Make Microwave Popcorn

I used to love microwave popcorn from the store but after reading all the yucky ingredients in it, I banished it from my house.

Luckily it is almost as easy to make at home and much cheaper.

Make Your Own Microwave Popcorn


  • 1/2 cup of popcorn kernels
  • 1 TB oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 large brown paper bag



1. In a bowl, stir popcorn kernels, oil and salt.

2. Put in a heavy brown paper bag and fold over the top of the bag 3 times to make a closed pouch.


3. Put bag in the microwave with the folded part up and microwave for about 2-5 minutes. This time will vary depending on your microwave. I usually stop it when the popping lessens and I get pauses of 2-3 seconds.

4. Carefully open the bag (there will be steam) and enjoy!

  1. Allan loves popcorn, however, ever since I read the ingredients, like you did, didn’t feel so good about it. A not so healthy snack right? I like this, a lot. XO Thank you!
