Homemade microwave popcorn

Does your family go through a lot of microwave popcorn?  Our does! I got this recipe from my Dad and Step-mom, thanks guys!  They informed me that microwave popcorn has many additives. Which I guess I already knew, but never really thought about.

This is an alternative way to eat popcorn and it's economical and healthy!  I love that!

Brown paper lunch bag
1/4 Cup Popcorn kernels
1/8 tsp. Olive oil
Salt or seasoning of choice

Put 1/4 cup of popcorn kernels into the brown paper lunch bag. Drizzle 1/8 tsp olive oil over the top. You do NOT need a lot of oil.  If you put too much oil in the brown bag it will soak up at the bottom and leave a mess in your microwave.  Guess how I know this?

Fold the bag two times. Put in the microwave and cook.  Each microwave is different. It took ours over 4:00 minutes to cook. I would recommend putting it in for a long time then stopping the microwave when the kernels stop popping every 0:02 to 0:03 seconds.

Add your toppings. Popcorn salt, popcorn white cheddar cheese topping, butter, Lawry's Seasoning or Almond Bark our some of our favorites.  But you can pretty much do anything!
