Thanks so much for this recipe. I don't like the mess of poached eggs, but love eating them. This is so easy and so good. It only takes 45 seconds in my microwave.

Count me in as a poacher of eggs that is in "love". In love with the simple egg, and in love with this technique. I cooked for exactly 50 seconds, and low and behold a perfect poached egg. Added a bit of butter at the end after removing the water, let sit for 1 minute, and ate away. Even had time to do another one. Bravo! Thanks for posting!

Yum! I had never made a poached egg before because I didn't know how. This is such a great way to have a quick egg in the morning. Thanks!

awesomely easy !! thank you for sharing - i didnt have a small cup/ bowl so i used a drinking glass and it worked out fine and i didnt have plastic wrap so i used a sandwich bag(the kind that you fold not with the zip top) and everything was perfect! I serve breakfast for dinner often(working mom) and this is a nice way to switch it up...thanks again!

this turned out perfect. I used a little less then 1 min around 50 sec. I just moved and this makes an easy fuss free way to make poached eggs.

Well, let me be the 112th person to say it worked :) I did try it twice and found that with my microwave I had to only do 45 seconds but who is going to complain about a recipe taking even less time! It worked great and gave me a totally healthy way to have an egg for breakfast this morning. Something which is usually considered a luxury due to the other cooking methods. Made for PAC Fall 2009.
