1/4 cup popcorn kernels

1 teaspoon olive oil

fine sea salt or table salt to taste

1/4 tablespoon ground black pepper

1/4 cup freshly ground Parmesan cheese


Combine the popcorn kernels, olive oil, salt, and pepper in a brown paper bag. Fold the top down 3 times to close, sake to coat coat kernels, and place in the microwave. 1 minute 45 seconds – 2 minutes until popping has slowed to 2-3 seconds between pops.

Transfer the popcorn to a bowl and sprinkle Parmesan cheese over the top while it is still warm.



Microwaves vary, so you may need to increase or decrease the cooking time to ensure that most of the kernels pop, but none of them burn. You can also use the popcorn function on your microwave if it has one.
