  1. Place the toast on a plate, butter it, flatten the middle down with the back of a fork.
  2. Crack and carefully pour the egg into the flattened middle of the toast, not allowing it to spill over into the plate.
  3. Prick the yolk quickly and carefully with the tines of the fork and bake in the microwave on a turntable for about 1 minute on 60-70% power, until the white is cooked through or desired doneness is achieved.
