    PaulaG's Note:

    I have been poaching eggs in the microwave for many years. For me this is the best way to prepare poached eggs for 2. It is quick, easy and almost foolproof. Please make sure you use a toothpick to pierce the yolk before cooking or it will explode!

      So you may want to mention what happens if you forget to pierce the yolk.......the egg explodes all over the microwave in millions of teeny tiny bits. Next time I will follow every step!

      I'm going to try this again. Today, I cooked for 1 minute, and the egg white wasn't formed at all, still floating in strands in the water. So I added 30 seconds, and then my yolk was cooked solid. So I will try a minute and 10 seconds, and maybe and 3 seconds at a time. I didn't take a pic, because I didn't feel the results were optimum. I think this is a great idea and I will try it again. Thanks for sharing!

      This turned out great, so simple and fast. The timing of one minute was perfect for my microwave.
      Clean-up's a breeze.
