The Incredible Edible Microwave Poached Egg

Introduction: The Incredible Edible Microwave Poached Egg

About: I love good food, who doesn’t? Millions of people make “good food” on a daily basis. Thousands of people have published cookbooks filled with “good food”… but good food gets boring… dull, dreary, mind-numbing…

As unfoodie-like as the microwave may be, I’ve recently discovered this new technique for poaching eggs and HAD to give it a try! Imagine a perfectly poached egg in 1 minute, without the hassle or uncooperative whites.
Simply crack an egg into a mug filled 3/4ths with water, cover and microwave for 1min-1.15min, and…Voila!!!

    Sorry but, what you really meant was Voilà!!!

    Thanks for the tip, I tried to do 2 at once, I put each egg in a separate ramequin, filled them with water, sealed them in plastic wrap and punched in 1:15. Both eggs came from the same dozen and of the same size but one's plastic wrap exploded and was overcooked with just a little liquid yolk left while the other was undercooked and needed 10 more seconds.  So I think your method of doing them one at a time is best and gives you more control.
