Pouched eggs aren't really my favorite. I like scrambled eggs better. I still made it though and ate it.... They were fair and ok but definitly not my favorite.

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.
