    microwave popcorn no oil no bag no butter

    It's genius really. Simple, simple genius.

    Glass bowl + ceramic plate + popcorn kernels = perfectly popped popcorn in the microwave.

    No bag. No butter or oil. Nothing to throw away afterward. And even no un-popped kernels.

    This is life-changing.

    Stay with me now.

    Take 1/4 cup of dry popcorn kernels and place in the bottom of a microwave-safe glass bowl (pyrex is a great choice). Place a microwave-safe plate on top of the bowl. Plate should be wide enough to go beyond the rim of the bowl.

    Microwave for 2 minutes 45 seconds. Watch in glory as your popcorn pops perfectly into little puffs of heaven

    Wow Judy,, that sounds really good.. My husband eats popcorn a bag of microwaved buttered every night and a popcorn making theatrical movie popcorn machine from kids. I would love regular popcorn! One suggestion on bowls and plates don't use old dishes for oven or microwaves. I had one breaks in my hand from baking and it was 15 years Old at the time. if u haven't replaced this kinda of cooking dish in 15 yrs please discard and start afresh.

    A hug
    This moment is your life, choose to live it. Grab all the gusto you can!!!
