A bowl of crunchy, air-popped popcorn is one of the easiest ways to get your family eating more fiber-rich whole grains. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan for a cheesy finish kids love!

  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 1 serving
  • ¼ cup popcorn kernels
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan or 2 tablespoons

Add the kernels to a brown paper lunch bag. Fold the edge of the bag over two or three times to seal the bag.

Microwave on high for approximately 2 minutes, or until popping slows to 2 seconds between pops (microwave time will vary depending on the power of your microwave, so you may need a few trial runs to figure out the perfect popping time for your microwave).*

Dump the popcorn in a bowl, mist with oil spray, and sprinkle on the cheese. Toss the popcorn to coat evenly with the cheese.

Serving size: 4-5 cups popcorn

*Note: If you have a hot air popper, simply prepare the popcorn in your air popper.
