1/2 cup Popcorn kernels
Flavored cooking spray
Garlic salt

Place popcorn in a 2 and 1/2-quart microwave-safe container; cover and cook at high power 4 to 5 minutes, or until popcorn is popped but not scorched.

If the microwave oven does not have a rotating turntable, use oven mitts to grasp and shake the covered container after 3 minutes of cooking.

Immediately pour the popcorn onto a baking sheet and coat with cooking spray.

To further flavor the popcorn, immediately sprinkle on your favorite seasoning blend such as garlic salt or cinnamon.
