  • ¼ cup popcorn kernels
  • ¼ teaspoon olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon salt, or less, get creative here, use any salt you like, seasoned, garlic, etc.
  • 1 standard size brown paper lunch bag


  • Place popcorn kernels in a small bowl.
  • Add olive oil and mix well.
  • Add salt and mix.
  • Pour kernel mixture into the paper bag.
  • Fold top of bag down 1” then again.
  • Microwave on full power 3 minutes. Microwaves vary, so yours may be more or less.
  • Listen for the popping. Once popping has a stopped for couple of seconds, it’s done. Careful not to let it burn!


Gr8 Tip:
Although you may have a few loose, unpopped kernels left in the bag, do not continue to pop. This will scorch the already popped kernels.
