Can I substitute egg whites or vegan eggs?

Unfortunately you cannot. The idea of the poached egg is to get the runny, gooey center which you can only get with the yolk!

Can I omit the vinegar?

You can but this recipe is created to make traditional poached eggs simpler and traditional poaches eggs use vinegar an you’ll want that flavor!

Can you cook 2 eggs at once?

I do not reccomend. The water and cook time is measured for 1 egg on.y. To get 2 eggs you’ll have to repeat the recipe again. Its only another 90 seconds!

Once the egg is removed from the microwave can you put it back in to cook longer?

Once the egg is removed from the microwave you can put it back in to cook longer if it has not been removed from the water.
