I’d been planning on doing a post about my Easter dinner today, but I’ve been feeling odd all weekend. Instead of a full meal, I opted for watching Batman on the sofa and eating broccoli and bread, then having popcorn for a snack.
I’ve been making my own microwave popcorn for a while, and tonight I looked at the leftover un-popped kernels from last night’s munchies and thought I should try repopping them instead of just throwing them away.
The results: tastes just as good, but you might want to use a smidge more oil because they did seem to pop quicker and burn faster. Then again, I generally have a problem with burning popcorn and setting toast on fire.
Line the bottom of a paper lunch bag with wax paper, then pour in 1/4 c. of popcorn kernels. Add a splash of olive oil (about 1 tsp. for new popcorn, a bit more for “recycled”) and a dash of sea salt, then swirl around to coat. Fold top of bag in two small folds. Microwave for 2 minutes.
Here’s hoping I feel up to cooking that Easter dinner tomorrow!
