I've been doing this for years. I usually use a coffeecup. MAKE SURE YOU COVER BOWL/CUP or you'll have egg all over your microwave!
This is a trial and error recipe. Read all the reviews so knew not to skip the tooth pick to the yolk and despite piercing the yolk with a tooth pick the very first one exploded at 50 seconds. Try number two poked the yolk six times (making sure it does not blowup again) and at 50 second pulled out to find it was cooked solid. Third try I poked six times cooked 30 seconds which was not done so cook 10 seconds longer giving me a nice sold poached egg. Thanks for the post.
Worked perfectly - 77 seconds !! No explosions thankfully - thanks to all the warnings !!
Perfect. Soft non-runny yoke. 80% power for 1 min.
Well, it's definitely a poached egg, and it's definitely yummy, but there's only one of it. :-) The egg was also overdone after 48 seconds, so less time in my microwave, I guess. I would love to know what timing / quantities can be used for multiple eggs - like maybe TWO? One looks so lonely...
Awesome! One minute was a bit too long for me (but I like a runnier yolk), so 46 seconds is the magic number for my microwave. I love poached eggs, and as someone who doesn't eat meat very often, it's good to be able to have some easy protein at breakfast. Thank you for this one!
Quick and easy way to poach an egg. Not sure what the tiny amount of vinegar does, but I followed as written. I need to cut the cooking time a bit in my microwave, as it is high powered and takes some getting used to :) I love poached eggs but hate waiting for water to boil and then cleaning the pan, so this will be great for me.
it was not to good
We used this recipe for foods class at the school that I teach. The kids didn't like it. I think scrambled eggs are more of their thing. Overall I do use this recipe at home and I like it.
