I'm not sure what a poached egg is supposed to be like, but this turned out fine as far as I can tell. I did one minute but found I should probably do a second.

Wonderful! Tender and super-easy. I did use just-not-boiling water and think in the future, I'll use "cold" faucet-fresh water.

I never made poached eggs before tonight and I actually only ate them for the first time recently in a restaurant. I bought the Nordic Ware Microwave 2 egg poacher at Walmart (under $5.00) a year ago but never used it because I was afraid I would mess it up. Tonight I finally used it and the eggs came out perfectly cooked. I had thrown out the instructions so I wasn't sure how long to cook them and that is when I decided to check the recipe in Food.com
The difference between using your recipe and my microwave poacher is that for mine I did not have to use vinegar but I had to spray with Pam/flour spray. I put cheese on each egg after I took them out of the microwave and placed back in for 30 seconds. This was too long and the perfect yolks became hard boiled. From now on I will either add the cheese before placing in microwave or leave it out entirely. I love all the tips I learn on Food.com. Thanks so much!

I did this recipe because my husband was really hungry and it only took me 4 minutes; one per egg. This was very good and loved the clean up time too. Thank you for sharing this.Chef#220151.

What a fabulous recipe! I made corn beef hash yesterday and DH loves poached (runny yolk eggs) on his. This was fast and really no sticky clean-up. It takes about 55-57 seconds in our micro but ohhhh soooo easy. Thank you for submitting this recipe.

These were so easy to make and very good. It took about 54 seconds in my microwave to set the white but keep the yolk runny - just the way I like them. Thanks Paula for another keeper. Made for I Recommend Tag.

Another good one Paula. So easy. My DH loves poached eggs and until this way, I hated fooling with them. Thanks for posting.
