You don’t have to be whipping up homemade Hollandaise sauce to enjoy a poached egg with breakfast. It doesn’t even have to be the weekend, thanks to this easy method.
No more swirling the water and gently lowering the egg into the water only to find--darn it--the egg fell apart, again. Get that gooey, golden center that’s perfect for topping everything from toast to a bowl of savory oats using just your microwave. (That means you can go back to more pressing things while you wait for the appliance to do all the work--like making your morning coffee.)
By gently cracking an egg into a microwave-safe bowl filled with water and nuking it for one minute, you’ll get the same result with a fraction of the work of poaching in a pot on the stove. Just make sure the egg is fully submerged in the water before popping it in the microwave. Remove it from the water with a spoon and add it to something delicious. It's really that simple and fast.
