I love poached eggs…  and this method is simple and fail proof!  Using the microwave produces a perfect poached egg in 1 minute.  It tastes so much better than a typical microwaved “scrambled egg”, I just love throwing this on an english muffin for a great breakfast or quick lunch in 2 minutes flat!

It doesn’t get easier than this!!

  • 1 egg
  • 1/8 tsp white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water


  1. Put water and vinegar in a microwavable dish (I used a measuring cup)
  2. Crack egg into the water and gently poke yolk with a toothpick
  3. Cover with plastic wrap
  4. Microwave 1 minute.  Remove egg immediately to stop it from cooking.

Voila!  Perfectly poached egg.  Mine was cooked to medium which is how I like it… you can adjust your timing based on your own microwave.
