Microwaved Poached Egg II
See also Microwaved Poached Egg I.
- 1 egg
- 1/3 cup water
- Approximately 1/2 teaspoon vinegar (optional)
Crack the egg into a microwave-safe bowl or mug.
Pour in about 1/3 cup water.
Add a bit of vinegar. (You can also add this directly to the water before pouring it in.) The vinegar is optional, but it will help the egg coalesce a little better.
Cover the bowl or mug with a microwave-safe plate. Place in the microwave and cook on 50% to 80% POWER for 60 seconds. Carefully remove the plate and check the egg. If it is not done yet, return to microwave and cook on 50% POWER in 20 second bursts, for a total of approx 80 seconds.
(I did 1 minute at power level 7 and 20 second bursts at powel level 5).
Remove from the water with a slotted spoon.
