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
- Put water and vinegar in a microwavable dish (I used a measuring cup)
- Crack egg into the water and gently poke yolk with a toothpick
- Cover with plastic wrap
- 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.
