Forget store-bought microwave popcorn bags. You can make your own popcorn in the microwave for pennies!
Brown paper lunch bag
Whole kernel popcorn
Seasoning (salt, brown sugar, garam masala, etc.)
Drizzle or spritz of olive oil
Put ¼ cup popcorn into a brown lunch bag. Spritz a little bit of olive oil into the bag. Sprinkle a dash of salt and brown sugar (or any other combination of seasoning). Shake. Remove air from bag and then fold the top of the brown bag twice and then fold a small section of the corner underneath. Pop the bag into the microwave for a couple of minutes. Carefully open the bag and pour your perfectly popped popcorn into a bowl and enjoy!
Each microwave acts differently. You may need to experiment with a few batches before finding the best timing and setting.
