You can make perfect poached eggs in the microwave!
Poached eggs do not require any fat to cook. They are traditionally cooked in a pan of boiling water, however, they can be made in the microwave using a steam method.
I purchased a Nordic Ware Microwave 2 Cavity Egg Poacher however, you can use a small dish, such as a ramekin covered with plastic wrap.
First you'll want to toast your English muffins or bread.
Then place 1/2 teaspoon of water into each "bowl". Crack open 1 egg per bowl, lightly pierce each yolk with a fork, then close lid or cover with plastic wrap if using a ramekin.
Place in microwave. Cooking times will vary depending on the wattage of your microwave. Start at 1 minute of cooking time for 2 eggs. Keep them covered after they have cooked for 30 seconds as to allow the steam to continue to cook the eggs. Your cooking time will vary. 1 minute is just a starting point.
The whites should be just cooked and not runny. The yolks should be runny. :)
Scoop the eggs out of the bowls and onto your choice of bread. I use the fork I pierced the eggs with. :)
Season as desired. Enjoy.
