    Servings and Ingredients

    Ingredients
    Serves 2
    QuantityIngredientAdd
    1 (3.3-oz.) bag Hy-Vee whole grain microwave popcorn
    ¼ c. Hy-Vee unsalted butter
    Desired mix-ins, if desired; such as: salt, cinnamon-sugar, Hy-Vee Italian seasoning, or Hy-Vee grated Parmesan cheese

    Things To Grab

    • Large bowl
    • Small saucepan
    • Whisk

    Directions

    1. Remove outer plastic from popcorn packaging. Microwave on HIGH for 1-1/2 to 2-1/2 minutes staying near by to make sure popcorn does not burn. Carefully remove bag from microwave; open bag and pour into a large bowl.

    2. Meanwhile, add butter to a small saucepan over medium heat. Stirring frequently, allow butter to melt. Continue cooking butter until it begins to foam. Cook 30 seconds to 1 minute more or until butter turns golden brown and begins to smell nutty. Remove from heat.
