I love poached eggs and have finally perfected after a lot of trial and error what I think is the best way to poach eggs in the microwave.
I have used this method to poach 4-5 eggs at the same time and all of them being cooked consistently the same.
Purchase a plastic bowl that is microwave safe that will hold 3-5 eggs comfortably. You could use a glass bowl but it will be too hot to handle.
Fill the bowl with water around 3/4" from the edge.
Pour in some white vinegar.
Put the bowl in the microwave on high for roughly 4-5 minutes or until the water just starts to boil.
Take the bowl out and gently crack the eggs into the water.
The whites will start to cook.
Take a large spoon and gently swirl the water in the bowl. Move the spoon around the outside of the eggs so you don't break the yokes.
This doesn't have to be done very long. This will help the eggs to all have even cooking.
Put the bowl back in the microwave for another 1-3/4 - 2 minutes on high. Time depends on how many eggs and how much water is in the bowl.
Take the bowl out of the microwave and the eggs should be done or very close to being done. Gently swirl the water again.
Fold up some paper towels or napkins on a plate or the lid of the bowl which is what I do.
Use the large spoon and take each egg out of the water and place them on the napkin to drain. Use a napkin to blot the water off the eggs.
Empty the water out of the bowl.
Gently lift all the eggs on the paper towel like a cradle and place them back into bowl.
Season to taste and enjoy perfect poached eggs.
