I love popcorn. Sadly, my popping machine mysteriously disappeared last year, and I found myself in a popcorn void, as none of the supermarket options in my ‘hood are without milk products. Last weekend, an old pal told me about this little trick, and I can’t believe I haven’t heard of it before! Ideally, I try to avoid using microwaves, but in a pinch, this snack is cheap and easy…and you know how much we love cheap and easy!
Using a brown paper bag, cover the bottom with one layer of popcorn seeds and fold the top down twice, pressing firmly. Place laying down in the microwave and put on high for two minutes. Melt a tbsp of Earth Balance, pour on top of the popcorn, add some freshly cracked salt (pepper is also yummy), seal the bag and shake it up.
Estimated cost: .32 cents per bag.
Eat that Orville!
