much easier, but not the same as poaching. in fact, I used to beat an egg in a small bowl, microwave it, and put it on a bagel/english muffin/toast and add in w/e to it. so other than leaving the yolk intact... I don't see the real difference.

Just tried it this morning for breakfast. Nuked it for only 1 min (for half runny, half hard yolk) and it worked like a charm!
