What a great tool for healthier and faster eggs! I cooked the first one for 1 minute and the yolk came out over hard. I tried the next one for 50 seconds and it came out over medium. I think I will go for 45 seconds for over easy. Thank you!!!

This is so much easier then doing it in a pot on the stove and hoping your egg whites don't end up shredded all over the place. I cooked my eggs a bit longer then 1 minute and I liked the better. This is a great recipe. I will use this one instead of the pot...thanks very much for the great recipe!!

This is the way I have been cooking my eggs for ages, but I never have covered them when cooking, so I decided to try them this way. It did make a difference, they seemed to cook a little better than usual. This is such a great way to cook poached eggs. I could not make them any other way, it is such a quick and easy recipe for a quick snack......and from now on I will be covering the eggs before microwaving! Thanks Paula, for helping me make this recipe perfect!

I came accross this recipe by reading another members review . I made it and cooked one minute in my old dial microwave, which worked perfect. Best is no messy pot to try and clean up.. no sticky mess at all on the sides of the bowl. I know I will make this often, I followed recipe exactly.

I have NEVER been able to make poached eggs, until now. Being on a low carb diet I love eggs for breakfast and now I can have a beautifully poached egg in 52 seconds. I don't use the vinegar and just cover the bowl with a saucer. I did make a mistake and try to make a second egg in the same water as the first. Not a good idea because the water is already hot so it just boiled over. But now I just dump out the water and add new and it works perfectly. I have now used this recipe every day for 2 weeks. Thanks PaulaG! I'm off to explore your other recipes!

The second time I've got it just the way I like it! I won't bother making any other way poached eggs.I left out the vinegar. No cleaning up required afterwards,I just hate dishwashing.Thanks for sharing.

I'm embarrassed to say I've never eaten a poached egg-- they just seem too runny. This recipe and luvmybge's timing tips have changed that viewpoint. Thanks so much.
