Popcorn for Breakfast!?!

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by blancpage

This is another recipe I just remembered, and I tried it from a Sesame Street cookbook I used to own. I don't remember the actual name of the cookbook. I don't remember the ingredient amounts anymore, but do remember what the ingredients were. This works best with air-popped popcorn or popcorn popped in a pan with just a bit of canola oil. I have no idea how this would taste with soy milk, but back then I didn't have to worry about IBS. I used 1% milk and ate this just like cereal. It was yummy. This would be a fun breakfast treat for kids now and then. Hope you enjoy it! Estimated to serve one child. ETA: This probably will turn soggy fast, but I don't know how to prevent it. Maybe using less milk will help, but I'm not sure.

I have been enjoying this for years as comfort food (hangover remedy). Never thought there was a recipe or if anyone else even knew about it. One tip is have a big glass of cold milk and spoon. Just drop popcorn handful at a time into milk and eat with spoon when it's desired soaking is complete!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 -1 12 cup freshly popped popcorn (air-popped or stove-popped with a small amount of oil, and very lightly salted if desired)
  • 14 cup milk


  1. Add freshly popped popcorn to a cereal bowl.
  2. Pour over milk. Eat like cereal! Yum!
