Perfectly Poached Eggs in 45 Seconds

Well, this is extremely handy to know: if you take a tea cup, add half a cup of water to it, drop an egg in it, cover it with a saucer and microwave the arrangement for 45 seconds you end up with a poached egg:

The egg on the left was in the microwave for 1 minute and the egg on the right was in for 45 seconds. At 30 seconds the egg was totally uncooked.

(Oh, and for the sake of completeness breakfast also consisted of a Trader Joe's veggie sausage patty and Utz's Pumpernickel Pretzel Sticks - yum!)

I suppose you're supposed to scoff at this method of egg preparation:

Look, no one should really cook eggs in a microwave if there’s a stove nearby. Because they’re just not going to taste as good. ...

But that's a load of hooey. The above method was fast and quite tasty. And you're not limited poaching, here's 11 more methods for egg prep in the microwave.

You're welcome.
