Microwave Poached Egg With Cheese

A poached egg is an egg that has been cooked by poaching in wate...the egg is cracked into a pan of simmering water and simmered until the egg white has mostly solidified, but the yolk remains soft. The 'perfect' poached egg has a runny yolk, with a hardening crust n no raw white remaining..Fresh eggs will yield the best results... Broken into simmering water, the white will stay clinging around the yolk, and the egg results in cooked albumen and runny yolk. To prevent dispersion of the white of the egg, a small amount of vinegar may be added to the boiling water. Dipping the eggs into cold water for a few seconds immediately after taking them out of the boiling water prevents over-cooking. Several cuisines include eggs poached in soup or broth and served in the soup. In parts of central Colombia, a popular breakfast item is eggs poached in a scallion broth with milk, known as changua..Also here in France, peoples used to have poached eggs with grilled bread slices for their breakfast with cup of coffee...I tried out poached eggs as microwave version with few grated cheese and green onions...This microwave poached egg take hardly 2 minutes and its a super duper breezy breakfast if u really in hurry also with many healthy stuffs together...Voila!! am sending this MW poached eggs to MEC-Breezy Breakfasts guest hosted by Simran of Bombay Foodie, event by Srivalli...


1no Egg
1tbsp Chopped green onions
