No extra ingredients.
You just need a paper lunch bag and...
1/2 cup popcorn kernels!
Oh, and a microwave!
When I think about the times I have caved in and bought microwave popcorn from the supermarket because I was in a hurry or just wanted to avoid the oil/washing up I'm a bit annoyed with myself now. I needn't have bothered! I can see this being the easy way for morning teas on mornings I find myself short of stash lunchbox legends or we are going to watch a family movie. I just can't get over how simple it is.
And you don't oil!
Of course you could melt some butter and mix it through afterwards and shake a little salt through it, or cinnamon or whatever you love but for my kids, they didn't even ask!
Pour 1/2 cup popcorn kernels into a paper lunch bag (the kernels cost about $1 for about 2.5 cups - I just used homebrand paper bags)
Pop in the microwave - depending on the wattage of your microwave up to 3 minutes. Mine is 1100W and it took 2 mins 20seconds to make it PPPEEERFECT. The lower the wattage, the longer you need to leave it in.
Watching it won't make it pop faster, but it amuses small people. Olivia grabbed a chair to watch...
How easy is THAT!!??
Hungry hoardes dig in!
