How many places have you read that you can take a lunch sack and popcorn kernals and make your own DIY microwave popcorn? I never believed it - but it's true! Kernals in a brown bag, fold the top a few times and pop for about 2.5 minutes - today I topped mine with feta and smoked paprika! YUM!
... no oil, no butter (but you can use spray butter)
SPRAY BUTTER If you can't live without butter on veggies, potatoes, toast, and what not, try "I can't believe it's not Butter" spray butter. I have used this for years, it is a staple in my house. It has 0 calories, 0 fat, 0 carbs AND tastes like butter!
Does popping kernels of corn in a brown bag actually work? YOU BETCHA! I put 2.5 tbs in a brown sack, fold, fold, fold, squeeze the fold and then microwave for 2 to 3 minutes. (Listen for the pops) No oil, no butter and today I topped it with feta and smoked paprika. For this popcorn junky this trick is a winner!
You can always use spray butter if you like. As a recovering butter-holic, spray butter seems to do the trick.
