The egg was half clear, half white and blew my plate off the top of my cup.

This recipe is GREAT! I love poached eggs but hate the mess. Now that I know such a fast, delicious way to prepare poached eggs (with little clean-up too, which is really important), I will invite more friends over for brunch. <br/><br/>Pair this with great bread and you have it made.

What a great recipe FattyFat. It's perfect for when you want to make poached eggs in a hurry, or in my case poached eggs for one. They turned out beautiful, soft, tender and runny just the way I like them. It was so quick and easy to make them this way, that I doubt if I will ever use my huge poaching pan again. They were wonderful served on toasted poppy seed bagels with your Patacones (Fried Green Plantains) - Panamá on the side. What a wonderful brunch I had. Thank you so much for sharing, a recipe that will be enjoyed by my dh & myself, over and over again. Made for Fall PAC 2012.

Took me a couple of tries to get this just right, but it was quick and easy. It will depend a lot on the power of the microwave & just how done you like your yolks. Thanks so much for posting!! I will use this often!

How quick is this - my egg was cooked before my toast was cooked. Now I wasn't sure if the water was supposed to be hot or room temperature so went with hot out of the kettle and set 900w microwave for 1 minutes and there was a pop at 55 seconds and I thought maybe the egg had burst but no it was cooked firm so would definately cook them this way for the DM and the DH who like their poached eggs well done but for me I would either cook them for a shorter time or use room temperature water but will certainly be trying again to get that runny silky yolk YUMMM. thank you FattyFat, made for All You Can Cook Buffet.
