Very easy, fast, one-dish soup that can be made quickly in the microwave. So yummy!

Although this recipe is good but please be careful. My one egg burst in the microwave and made a mess. The other egg burst when I stuck a fork in it and splattered all over my hands, arm, wall and floor. It burnt my arm and hand. If your going to make this, try cooking it on the stove. Less chance of bursting eggs.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Crack two eggs into a microwave safe bowl. Fill with water to cover eggs (important step, both eggs must be covered with at least 1/2" of water, no poking the eggs with a toothpick or other cover is necessary). Cook in large microwave for 2 minutes, or small microwave about 4. (The colder your water is, the longer you'll want to cook. Test times for your preferred done-ness and microwave settings. When done, you will have two perfectly poached eggs, which, if you don't want the soup, can be removed from the water and used for other purposes.) Add in 1/2 teaspoon of chicken bouillon base (I like to use Better-Than-Bouillon), and top with red pepper flakes and garlic powder to taste. Stir water to mix. Chop eggs and enjoy!
