I could eat it every day and sometimes do!
My favorite way to make it is on the stove in coconut oil with my vintage white mountain popcorn popper. Then I cover it in melted butter and popcorn salt and indulge.
Sometimes I even share. 😉
But – let’s admit – this way of popping popcorn does leave a bit of a mess and is slightly caloric. 🙂
While we love the ease of microwave popcorn – they are pretty expensive and I’ve heard some talk about unhealthy preservatives.
My solution? Brown bag popcorn.
I saw this on Pinterest and was skeptical – but trust me – it really works.
And it’s so simple!
Just take a brown, lunch size paper bag and pour 1/4 cup of popcorn in it. Fold over the end and put it in your microwave on high for 3-4 minutes. Just listen carefully for the popcorn to stop popping.
I told you it was easy!
Of course my kids always pour their popcorn into a bowl and cover it with melted butter and salt And then they pass the bag on to the next kid in line – because one bag can pop multiple batches of popcorn.
I just bought 100 brown paper bags for less than $2.00. With several batches per bag – that sure beats the price of regular microwave popcorn! And there’s no popcorn popper to wash.
And that my friends is a winner!
