Poached egg is a tasty dish but also a complicated one. Many people struggle to get it right, and the frustration some even causes them give up on this deliciousness altogether. Luckily, there is one TikTok hack that promises perfect poached egg every time, regardless of your cooking skills.

TikTok user @caughtsnackin recently shared an intriguing recipe for poached egg that quickly went viral due to its simplicity and efficiency. In a matter of weeks, the video racked up almost 3.5 million views and spawned a series of praising comments from people who tried it.

How To Do It

To make a perfect poached egg, you’ll first need a mug and some boiling water. Fill the cup with 250 milliliter of boiling water and then add one teaspoon of vinegar. It appears that @caughtsnackin opted for white wine vinegar in her video, so use that one if you can.

Then, crack an egg directly into the mug and pop it into the microwave for 40 seconds at high temperature. Once you take out the mug, you should see a poached egg that will look amazing on a piece of toast.

Check out the video with the instructions below.
