Equipment

  • Microwave
  • Coffee Mug

Ingredients

  • 1 Egg
  • Water

Instructions

  • Fill a straight-sided coffee mug halfway with water.
  • Crack an egg and let it slide down the side of the mug to the bottom. Make sure there's enough water in the mug to cover the egg by at least 1 inch with 2 inches of space above it. 

  • Using the tip of a sharp knife or a toothpick, gently poke a small hole in the yolk.
  • This allows steam to escape during the cooking process, so your microwave poached egg doesn't explode.

  • Place a saucer (not a paper plate and not a paper towel) over the top of the mug and microwave it on HIGH for 1 minute.
  • Check the egg for doneness and repeat in 10-second bursts, checking after each, until done.

  • Gently tilt the mug away from you and lift the lid. Remove the egg carefully with a slotted spoon. Serve immediately.
