I’m a foodie and these are the easiest poached eggs you’ll ever make and you don’t even need to turn the hob on | The Sun

HAVE you ever struggled with making a poached egg? Why don’t you try this easy method that doesn’t even require the hob. 

Poached eggs are notoriously difficult to get right and often end up being fumbled – even by the best home cooks. 


One woman has come up with a great alternative way that requires next to no effort to try out.

TikTok creator @jennifervalentyne has shared her foolproof hack which she says is “perfect”.

Jennifer cooks her egg in the microwave instead of on the hob. 

She begins her video by promising these will be the easiest poached eggs you’ve ever made.

She remarks that it looks “perfect” before placing it on top of a slice of multigrain toast. 

Salt and pepper are sprinkled on for a finishing touch before she tucks in.

The egg has a perfectly gooey yolk that you’d expect while the white all looks well cooked. 

Those in the comments were impressed and quickly tried the method out themselves. 

One person wrote: “That was the best poached egg I have ever had😁 I am 72 years old and can still love trying new stuff. Thank you.”

Another said: “This works! We love it! Now my son can add an egg to his cup ramen.”

Not everyone managed to get it right first time, with Jennifer reminding people to stick to using a smaller vessel like a measuring jug or cup. 

Others also insisted the vinegar in the jug was not needed either.
