Microwave Poached Eggs

To poach an egg in the microwave, place 2 tablespoons of water in a 6-ounce custard cup. Microwave, uncovered, on high until boiling. Carefully break 1 egg into the cup. Pierce the egg yolk several times with a toothpick. Cover and cook at 50% power for 1 to 1-1/2 minutes or until egg is almost set. Let stand, covered, for 1 minute.
