Gourmet Microwave Popcorn

Sharing is caring!

I keep a jar of popcorn kernels and a small bottle of fancy olive oil in my office. Much better than microwave popcorn, and tastier too.


  • ¼ cup unpopped popcorn
  • salt to taste
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil, or more if needed


Place popcorn in a brown paper bag. Tightly seal the bag by folding the top several times.

Microwave on High until the popping slows, about 2 minutes. Carefully open the bag. Season with salt and drizzle with olive oil. Reclose the bag and shake to distribute the seasoning.
