Thread Name: BS: How to poach an egg
Subject: RE: BS: How to poach an egg
Aldi sell pickled eggs. I've not compared their price with fresh eggs. I only ever cook eggs after I've cooked sausages and bacon. I put two sausages and two rashers of bacon in a pyrex dish. The pyrex lid died many moons ago so I put a plate on top as a lid. This goes in the microwave for five minutes. There is water in the dish afterwards. I break an egg into this and do 20 seconds microwave, followed by 20 seconds pause. Four or five times of this produces the perfect egg. More powerful microwaves might require different times.
