A new twist on poached eggs. ***NOTE**** Cooking time can vary depending on the wattage of your microwave.


  1. Place sour cream in microwaveable container.
  2. Add chopped green onion.
  3. Make a well in the sour cream and break in 2 eggs.
  4. Cover and microwave at 60% power for 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 minutes, or until whites are cooked.
  5. Sprinkle with paprika and serve on toast.

This is an interesting twist on poached eggs, not quite an eggs benedict, but not just a plain egg. The sour cream and green onions are a nice flavor blend with the eggs. I had not previously made poached eggs in the microwave, and found that even at 60% power, my yolks were hard after only 2 minutes. I will have to play with the timing in order to figure out the perfect settings for my microwave. I do love a runny egg and toast. :)
