What’s the easiest way to make a poached egg? We thought it would be the new egg poacher we bought… But actually the trick Lionel saw on Facebook works the best. You have to experiment a bit with timing on your microwave, but once you master it, this is probably the quickest and easiest way to make a poached egg…. (Let me know if you have an easier way.)
1. Break an egg into a mug.
2. Cover the raw egg with some cold water.
3. Microwave on high for 1 minute.
4. Remove from microwave and allow to stand for 1 minute.
5. Scoop poached egg out with a tablespoon.
…and you have a poached egg!
