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.
This came out good. I cooked it at 70% power for 1 minute. I put it on top of toast with sliced ham. The white was still a little runny but the yolk was cooked like a hard boiled egg. I may not have pierced the yolk enough. Overall quick & easy, I'll just have to play around with the cooking time to get that perfect runny egg.
Made as posted and remembered to pierce the yolk with a toothpick before cooking. Served on a lightly buttered crumpet and the melted butter and egg yolk soaked in all the little holes for a scrumptious treat. Thanks for posting Paula. Made for Celebrating National Diabetes Month.
I just made this for the 1st time. It was so easy! Thanks for the great idea! :)

That was so easy! Thank you so much! My mom poaches eggs in the microwave but I've never paid attention when I visited as to the how. I started with hot water and my egg was a little overdone for my taste (I like very runny) but it was not dry, so I'll try 55 seconds next time. Otherwise it was great, very easy. I microwaved a couple of slices of bacon before and had a lovely breakfast on a slice of whole wheat toast... Should get me through the whole morning for a change :). Thanks again!!
Just tried this and I am so impressed! How easy and good it is. I did mine in a sauce bowl, used the water but no vinegar, and covered the bowl with a coffee filter. Cooked 1 min. and it was perfect. I don't own a slotted spoon, so I just poured the water off the egg while keeping the egg in with a spoon. Love this!
Just had these for breakfast and it was fast, easy, no mess & delicious. I used the vinegar & didn't taste it at all. I did 2 eggs. My toast was done about the same time as the first one. Let it sit while I buttered the toast. Plopped it on the first slice. Made the second egg while I poured a fresh cup of coffee. Egg was done by the time I stirred my coffee. (I used a coffee cup, the small kind that comes with a fancy set of dishes & covered with a paper towel. Made sure I thoroughly poked the eggs.) Sprinkled on some salt, pepper & a little tiny pat of butter on top of both. Couldn't be easier! 55 seconds worked perfect for my eggs. Thank you so much Paula. My mom used to poach eggs for dad in milk, salt & pepper but dad liked the milk poured on his toast. I loved the eggs but hated the soggy milky toast. Now maybe I can attempt eggs benedict! LOL
It's definitely the easiest way to make a poached egg,I love the texture and the taste!thank you!
