This is going to be a super quick post. Quite frankly, because there isn’t an awful lot to say on the matter. It’s not a recipe in as much as it is a scientific method.
I love eggs in all of their wonderful forms but, until I found this method of cooking them, I only ate them poached when I ordered them when I was out.
Poached eggs are notoriously finicky, prone to ending up crap and (if I’m going to be honest) not really worth the effort. There’s also the fact that trying to pull an entire breakfast together around boiling water, stirring it, carefully cracking an egg in so it folds over on itself and cooking it just enough is an exercise in insanity.
That’s where this method of poaching eggs comes in! It’s bloody brilliant, literally uses only things you have in your house (so you don’t have to buy one of those crappy microwave egg poachers) and takes about 2 minutes! What more can you ask for? Me to come round and make them for you? Not likely, I’m too busy eating a plethora of poached eggs because now I can.
Like I said, short post. So let’s get to it!
Let’s poach eggs in the microwave…
