Poached Eggs in 2 Minutes

Have you ever tried to poach an egg using traditional “pot” and water method? You will know how difficult it is to get it right. In fact, you will probably fail 10 times before you get the perfect egg.

Here is one quick recipe that you will like and it only takes less than 2 minutes using microwave. This is an easy recipe for a healthy diet.

Use a bowl, preferably a medium size rice bowl and fill halfway with cold water.

Craft the eggs in the bowl. Don’t break the egg yolks. Make sure the water cover the eggs just enough.

Put the bowl in the microwave for 1 minute and 50 seconds. You may want to experiment with your microwave to get the ideal time. Don’t cook over the recommended time or the eggs will expand and explode.

Remove the bowl immediately. You know the eggs are cooked when the water turns cloudy white. Sometimes the eggs will float to the top.

Put it on a plate, add some salt and pepper to serve.

If you want runnier egg yolks, try reduce cooking time by 10 seconds.
