A McDonald’s fan claims the best way to poach an egg is in the microwave.

The young woman uploaded a video to TikTok of herself attempting to cook eggs similar to the poached version found inside Macca’s breakfast burgers.

The amateur chef cracked two raw eggs into a plastic container with water, salt and pepper before putting it in the microwave.

She set the timer for two minutes before taking the eggs out and eating them.

A timer of two minutes was put on the microwave before the eggs were ready to eat

‘Nailed it,’ one social media user said.

Some McDonald’s employees commented on the video and explained that the method is not how the eggs are cooked at the fast food chain.

An office worker known only as Shayne told Daily Mail Australia: ‘Poaching an egg in the microwave is the best way. I’ve tried other methods but this way you can get restaurant quality with zero fuss.’
