Poached eggs are fantastic for breakfast with some bread, or as a salad topping – whether you like them runny or hard.

Taking to TikTok, one mother confessed to relying solely on a microwave for cooking, a revelation that might seem unconventional at first glance.

She said: “I recently discovered how to poach an egg, and I owe a big thank you to whoever shared it on TikTok.”

The online user then instructed: “Break an egg in a small Pyrex [bowl], add a little bit of water, just to cover the yolk.

“Put it in the microwave – mine goes for 44 seconds… On the timer for the microwave, it can go between 36 and 45 seconds.”

After the timer went off, the mother proudly presented her “perfect poached egg,” prompting her daughter to slice it open with a fork, revealing its gooey, runny yolk.

“Look at that!” she exclaimed in excitement.

As expected, the post garnered hundreds of comments, with numerous users expressing their eagerness to test out the incredibly simple hack for themselves.

One person commented: “Just tried it after watching this and they came out great! Fast and easy. Thank you as well.”

Another TikTok user chimed in: “Lol lol omg wish I saw this before I attempted my first poached eggs this morning.”
