Thread Name: BS: How to poach an egg
Subject: RE: BS: How to poach an egg
I have, perhaps, oversimplified the poaching of eggs:
I use the microwave - (Arghhhh!) Yep, I do. I put a small bowl of water in and heat close to boiling, take it out and put two or 3 eggs in, depending on need and using appropriate sized bowl. I poke each egg with the tip of a sharp knife, put a microwave cover over the bowl and heat another 1-2 minutes, until white is firmly done.

More recently, I found a two egg sized tajine in a thrift shop, considering it to be mainly decorative. As I prepped BF one day, I looked at this thing and wondered...
I put butter in the bottom and melted it in micro... Put in two eggs, poked them, placed lid and... WOW! perfect poached eggs, no mucky water.
