Microwave Poached Eggs
June 11, 2014
"This is a recipe that I posted to another site many years ago. The recipe has served me well over the years and I wanted to share it here. 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!"
Add the water and white vinegar to a 6 ounce custard cup.
Break egg into cup, pierce egg yolk with toothpick, and cover dish loosely with plastic wrap.
Place in microwave and cook for 1 minute or until desired doneness.
You may need to experiment with cooking times based on the wattage of your microwave and taste preference.
Immediately remove egg from hot water with a slotted spoon as it will continue to cook.
Serve with salt and pepper to taste.
