Microwave the bag for 1 minute and 45 seconds. Note: Every microwave is different, so adjust your time accordingly.
Meal Prep: Make a week's worth of these bags at a time, fold them, and place in a snack container in the pantry. This will make it easy to grab and go for your busy family. We like to store brown bags with kernels that are ready to go in a popcorn basket that we purchased at the Dollar Store. This makes it just as easy as store-bought popcorn. Even easier, actually, if you account for the time it takes you to wrestle with the plastic wrap on store bought popcorn.Frugal Tip: Reuse the brown paper bags! We do all the time. After you microwave the popcorn, there will be a bit of oil on the bottom of the bag. That is completely normal. If we know we're going to make more than one bag in a night (movie nights), we reuse the same bag two or three times.Adding Oil: While it's not needed, some prefer to add oil to get some extra flavor and make it even fluffier. I recommend using some liquid butter or a little bit of coconut oil. No more than 1 teaspoon per bag is needed. Note: Expect the bag to move around a little bit in the microwave as the kernels pop and force the bag to expand.
