Can it really be THIS easy?

Homemade Microwave Popcorn

Yield: 2 servings
Prep Time: 3 minutes
Cook Time: 2 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes


1/4 cup popcorn kernels
1-2 tablespoons melted butter


Pour kernels into a plain brown paper bag. Crimp/fold the top of the bag over itself and place on its side in the microwave. Cook on high for 2 minutes or until the popping slows to 5-7 second intervals. Remove from microwave and toss with butter and salt.

I found this recipe here.

Have you ever tried nutritional yeast on your popcorn? It is full of vitamins. Not to mention delicious and addicting!

I recently read an article that said that nutritional yeast is chemically similar to MSG which is often labeled as yeast extract or hydrolyzed yeast or something similar.

My husband had wavered for a long time about whether or not MSG is bad for the general population or not until he saw that researchers inject mice with MSG to make them fat so they can study obesity. The studies conducted for FDA were funding by the companies who were selling the products not an objective third party.

So no, we won't use nutritional yeast. Because you're right, it is addicting.
