How to Poach an Egg in the Microwave
- 1 egg
- 1/3 cup water
- Approximately 1/2 teaspoon vinegar (optional)
- Microwave-safe mug or small bowl
- Microwave-safe small plate
- Slotted spoon
The vinegar is optional, but it will help the egg coalesce a little better.
You can also add this directly to the water before pouring it in.
Place in the microwave and cook on 80% POWER for 60 seconds. Check the egg. If it is not done yet, return to microwave and cook on 80% POWER in 20 second bursts. (I usually cook mine for a total of 80 seconds.)
