The Pirate is spending the night with me. I can't wait until morning so I can show him my new trick for poached eggs in a cup. Only I will have to do it in a bowl. He will want two eggs on toast instead of just one. And I want to make them at the same time like I do when making them on a stove. I would have to read back to see who posted this neat little trick. But whoever it was a big THANK YOU!

It's on the first page of this thread. Sir Loin of Beef posted a video.

I'm glad I asked y'all this. Seems like it helped some folks and not just me.

I'm at my roommate Tyler's house this weekend, and I made them soft-boiled eggs and toast according to the video and it was awesome! I fried up some sausage links and made a fruit cup out of pears, bananas, and grapes.

Cat gave me the idea about the fruit. Thanks, y'all.

I tried this method today and I'm a convert.

It took me slightly longer than the video indicated, I let the water in my two cup Pyrex measuring cup come to a boil in the microwave, added two eggs, nuked them for a minute and then let them rest in the hot water for a minute or two while I made toast. Each egg remained separate and was perfectly poached.

I think this would work well if you have a houseful of people who drift into the kitchen at odd times wondering what's for breakfast.

I'm almost 60 and I'm finally learning to cook!

I ended up doing three eggs for The Pirate. He was a hungry boy! I used a shallow bowl and the eggs all cooked separate even though in the bowl together. I will never make poached eggs in a pan again. I could do a whole bunch of these poached eggs for a crowd. I have a rather large micro and an 8x8 easily fits in it with room to spare. Move over cup of cold coffee. I have found a new use for the micro.

Yes! This really does work very well!

Isn't it interesting that a simple question about a simple food, the egg, can change how we fix these?

Thank you, SLoB. This is exactly what I love about this website!

With love,
