Popcorn (Paper Bag Method)

4 mins (prep 1, cooking 3)
4 ingredients
1 servings
I have been popping popcorn for many years using oil and butter. This method is less fattening and better for you. If you want to add butter,salt or other seasonings, you can after popping. This recipe I got from looking up "How to Make Popcorn" Microwave timing will vary with different microwaves. Mine takes 3 minutes. Just experiment like I did when popping in paper bag. Also this only makes enough for 1 serving.
