Easy Way To Poach Eggs



I LOVE poached eggs for breakfast and a fast and easy way to poach them is in the microwave. I get a bowl and fill it about 1/3 with water and heat it for 2 minute in the microwave. I then crack open two eggs into the water and microwave for another minute. Once done, I gently pour out excess water and then add salt and pepper to taste. YUM!

More Information:

I especially love poached eggs over quinoa and herbs or mixed with crumbled saltines.

  • I saw something ona cooking show once that said you can crack your egg in a non stick frying pan and then just pour a little water in and cover the pan for a minute or two until the egg is cooked to your liking. The water pretty much evaporates. I've tried that too and it works great as well. I loved soft eggs. - by DEBIGENE
