Microwave-safe mug or bowl
½ cup water
1 egg
1 small microwave-safe plate


Gently crack an egg into a microwave-safe mug or bowl. Discard the shell.
Pour the water and white vinegar over the egg, then place a small plate over the mug.
Microwave for 1 minute. (The cook time will vary from microwave to microwave. The microwave at our studio is an 1000-watt model, and I used full power. If your microwave has a lower wattage, you may need to increase the cook time. If your microwave has a higher wattage, you may want to use a lower power setting)
After cooking, carefully remove the mug and plate from your microwave. Use a slotted spoon to check on the egg. If the white is set, it’s done! If it’s not quite set, put the mug and plate back into the microwave and cook for another 10 seconds. Repeat until the egg white has set.
Be sure to let the egg cool off a bit before piercing the yolk with a fork. Although, rare, it is possible for the the pressure in the yolk to release and spray hot egg into your face.
Serve your poached egg however you like with a sprinkle of SIDS SALT & PEPPER!
