Microwave greatly simplifies the process of cooking poached eggs. But here are some tricks:

- Do not allow boiling water. Protein will harden much earlier than water will boil. The process must be monitored;

- The use of a pacifier allows you to cook as quickly as possible and without water. Preliminary its walls are greased with vegetable oil.
You can cook several eggs at the same time. To do this, take a container of greater capacity, pour more water and leave them for a longer time.
