    I just cant seem to get the temperature right.

    Place egg in little microwave glass cup/bowl

    I tried medium high, medium, medium low.

    Pricking with a toothpick

    Every time the white cooks but by the time the white has cooked the yolk has gone hard boiled like, and i want it to be runny/soft. How do I achieve this.

    To cook the white and have a runny middle?

    What you need to do is put the chicken in the microwave 5 minutes before the egg is due. 10 minutes on high should do it. When the chicken pops, it's ready.

    The problem is that the inside is getting hotter than the outside, so you need to build a little enclosure out of metal spoons to shield the egg. If you haven't got any spoons the right shape then wrapping it in tin foil also works.

    Poach them in the microwave.

    Fill a 1-cup microwaveable bowl or teacup with 1/2 cup water. Gently crack an egg into the water, making sure it's completely submerged. Cover with a saucer and microwave on high for about 1 minute, or until the white is set but the yolk is still runny. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the egg to a plate.
    You may need to vary the timing/power depending on your microwave.

    Boil jug .. put water in bowl .. add egg .. cover with glad wrap .. microwave for about 45 secs on high - any longer and you'll get a mess.

    Scrambled egg is best egg. Add tabasco sauce, pepper and salt.

    Just use the stovetop, would have been quicker than multiple attempts in a microwave me thinks.

    Pro tip if you order big breakfasts with poached eggs from cafes: ask for hollandaise sauce on the eggs so you get a small portion of eggs benedict.
