Guilt Free Popcorn

By accident we figured out that Olive Oil goes better with Popcorn than Butter. Good thing we ran out of butter one movie night and we were too lazy to get up the couch and go to the store.

This is also way better than Microwavable popcorn.


l cup Popcorn
5 tablespoon Olive Oil


1) In a covered 3 gallon pot, heat 5 tbsp of olive oil with 3 kernels of corn on a medium-high heat.
2) When the kernels pop, add 1 to cups of corn kernels.
3) Turn heat down to medium.
4) Shake the pot every 30 to 45 seconds.
5) When the kernels start to pop, shake the pot every 10 seconds until the kernels pop 1-2 seconds apart.
6) Salt to taste
