My egg this morning turned out darn near perfect. I put the water in my pyrex measuring cup and heated it in the microwave for about 40 seconds. Then I cracked the egg into the cup and microwaved it for about 45 seconds. The whites were almost the way I like them done, but the yolk was still runny, almost like mom's. So this is now my procedure to do this, but tomorrow, the second cooking with be for 50 seconds.

Since the water doesn't actually boil, you can't call them soft boiled, but you can call them soft cooked. Since they are cooked in liquid they are also poached. As long and they taste good, I don't care what they're called!

That's exactly why we think they are poached. They are cooked in liquid and not in the shell.

Here are the pics from this morning! I cooked 3/4 cup of water in my pyrex measuring cup for 40 seconds. I cracked the egg in and cooked another 50 seconds. Let it sit in the water for several seconds while I buttered my toast. The whites were not as runny as they look in the picture. Results would probably vary with the power of your microwave oven and the size of the egg. I really like the egg cooked this way. I will probably add a second a day to each cook time until I get the whites done as much as I can while still having the runny yolk.

There ya go Charlie! That is how mine came out the first time. One of the things I like about this method is that the eggs come out in the perfect shape that you can never achieve unless you have the rings.

I agree...and I think this site needs a "like" button.
