When poaching an egg like this, you must pierce the egg yolk or it could explode making a very messy clean up.

I usually do two eggs at a time, Piercing the yolks with a fork. It might take about one minute and fifteen seconds depending on your microwave, the time may vary.

I find the eggs cooked this way very easy and delicious.

Dear Grandmama,
I have never had a problem with them exploding. I have with other egg recipes, but not when I poached them.

Since they're so easy to make I only make one at a time so it's always warm when I eat it. Like you said it really depends on the microwave.


Please try it my way without piercing the egg and you might be pleasantly surprised. Because of all the mess microwave eggs are well known for I only make the poached eggs now because of the simplicity and lack of mess. Sometimes I dribble a little Thousand Isles Dressing over it and the taste is amazing.
