Microwave popcorn is so quick and easy to make at home with kernels and pops up fresh and perfect every time. Make in a bowl or a paper bag and add your favorite toppings!
It’s Thursday, we’re coming up on a long holiday weekend, and I’m so looking forward to having an extra day off. True, our days look really weird right now and we can’t really go anywhere, but it’ll be a nice break all the same.
Anyway, I thought we’d delve right into the recipe today!
We eat A LOT of popcorn in my house.
It’s roughly a weekly go-to with our kiddos for movie nights. And to be honest, my husband requests it as much as they do.
I’m happy to oblige because it is so quick and easy to make in the microwave. I get the popcorn going while everyone’s getting ready for the movie, then we all sit down with a bowl or cup of it (and a paper towel for greasy hands) and dig in.
There’s something really cozy and happy about it. Not to mention tasty!
Bonus: Popcorn is a whole grain, so all on its own, it’s technically a really healthy snack.
And depending on what you add to it, it can stay that way.
Regardless of what you add, too, making it at home is a much healthier version than the store-bought popcorn that has all kinds of extra additives.
We are traditionalists with butter and salt, but that’s still just three ingredients: popcorn, butter and salt. I recognize all of those ingredients, which is more than I can say for some ingredient labels on bags you’ll buy at the store.
Plus, it’s SO much cheaper to make it yourself.
And once you know how to make it, you can have popcorn at the ready anytime. All the time!…
