Easy Poached Egg Sandwich Recipe

Faster Than Drive-Through: This Perfect Egg Sandwich in Under a Minute

A perfectly poached egg in 25 seconds?! It seemed too good to be true, but that's what the Casabella Microegg ($10) promised. I'm not one for endorsing unitaskers, but this round, silicone pouch seemed too intriguing not to try. So, I decided to go for it and found myself seriously in love with this tool. Yes, the egg really will cook up in the microwave in 25 seconds and just the way I like it (the whites cooked through, the yolks runny as hell). Here's how to create my version of the perfect homemade "McMuffin" in under a minute. Now, you really have no excuse to pick up drive-through for breakfast.

  1. Cut an english muffin in half width-wise, then toast to your liking.
  2. Meanwhile, coat the Microegg with cooking spray. Crack the egg inside the Microegg. Season liberally with salt and pepper. Close top securely and microwave for 25 seconds exactly. My egg "popped" once on the last second, giving me reason to believe you don't want to leave it in the microwave any longer!
  3. When the english muffin is toasted, slather about one tablespoon of salted butter on each side. Carefully open the top of the Microegg and slip the egg on top of the bottom half of the english muffin. Add a slice of cheese (or avocado) to the top, close, and demolish!
