April 22, 2014

in breakfast, recipe

Here’s the results of my experiment…

…crack an egg into a mug, and cover it with 1/3 cup water/splash of vinegar. Ding dong for a minute covered with a plate.

Actually, at around 45 seconds I heard a little popping noise, freaked out, and finished it off uncovered.

Uh…I think I cooked it too long. It was still good, but there was no yolky action – may have to reduce cooking time (or the power levels, which honestly – I still haven’t figured out how to do on my microwave).

Abe not at home?? ’cause aint he Mr. Poachem’?

If you have a reheat setting, try that. Often those are lower power presets, and may make it an easy peasy poaching. Beyond that I have no advice about poaching in a microwave. I have a poaching pan that makes it a no brainer.

Hi Lynn,
This is a good idea, I’ve never thought about using my microwave to cook eggs or something else!
Really like this,
Chantal

Hi Lynn – Loved your Orange Julius shoes :) OK. so – try coating your cup in butter (a thin amount) and then put your egg in, add a little h2o, no vinegar, and micro in increments…as the nuke power of your micro can vary….like increments of 15 secs.
Thought of you and your Daddy today as I saw a Deer in my back yard…<3
