I used a water bath (plus two tablespoons of white vinegar) at 190 degrees, cooked for 4 minutes.

That does look good.  Now you just need a dab of Hollandaise sauce...

I make mine in a plastic container. I cook it in the microwave for 65 seconds for 2 eggs. Comes out great.

I have these bad boys.  They make egg poaching sooo easy.  You don't need to put in any butter or anything.   You just got to time it.

I use a plastic container for making poached eggs. Very easy to use. I squirt a little Pam spray into it. Put the eggs in. Put in the microwave for 65 seconds for 2 eggs. And done. That easy. This is what I use. You can buy these for 2 eggs or 4 eggs.

Stir the water and pour the egg into the vortex. No gadget necessary.

I love Crab Cake Benedict and Smoked Salmon Benedict.

Dittos, but not everyone can do that. I have seen chefs who couldn't do it.

I find using the microwave is fast and easy. Anyone can do it. I don't any cooking at all but I have no trouble making poached eggs in a microwave.
I just bought a new item to use. It is made of silicone. You can use this to cook in a microwave or in boiling water. Whatever you prefer. Got this on Amazon.

That's how I did it - the swirl + pour, but I had to do each egg separately (when I tried two eggs one didn't form right).

I didn't know that you could poach eggs in the microwave, I might need to look into these. In the advertisement it looks more like a fried egg, when you use it in real life does the egg white form around the yolk the way it does in my video?

Mine comes out just like the picture.

These do look interesting. The one problem with using a microwave is they don't always come out even. One may cook more than the other.

Nice.  I prefer my eggs over easy.  I like the yoke runny and the edges crisped up a bit.  I use olive oil instead of butter because it's healthier and has a more distinct flavor.

My son loves those frills that you get with olive oil!

I think that the current practice is to follow such an assertion with a disclaimer, The FDA has not evaluated this statement.  

Tangent:  I found in my in-box early Saturday morning a notice from oliveoillovers<dot>com that the annual harvest sale is underway with substantial discounts.  Going to the site, I was pleased to find that the discounts were, indeed, very attractive.  But if you are looking for a Moraiolo monovarietal, I must advise you that there is none left now, after yr obdnt srvnt pillaged the entire remainder of the 2017 stock.  (End tangent.)

As to healthier, my technique for poaching eggs uses no oil at all:  I  bring a substantial quantity of water that has had a generous dollop of unfiltered apple cider vinegar decanted into it to a rolling boil; then, I turn down the heat to mere (not rolling) boil and, as gently as possible, slide in a pair of eggs that I first have broken into a small glass bowl, holding the lip of the bowl as close to the surface of the boiling water as I can do without scalding my skin.  No plastic containers for me.  (I get the eggs out of the water later with a silicone scoop strainer.)

You were correct to point out my faux pas relating to it being "healthier".  It is healthier than butter, which was my point but of course I never mentioned the word butter anywhere so there was absolutely no reason for anyone to have any idea what I was referring to.  I agree that poaching is probably healthier than the olive oil approach.  But I'm now eating maybe 4 eggs a week.  Slowly trying to get my exercise regimen back up and, well, running, or more to the point, biking.  I could take a cue from this thread and switch to poached since I realized I need to lose 50 pounds.

I bought these

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01LXB...UTF8&psc=1

and used one for the first time today. It worked fine and cleanup took longer to type it here than it took in reality. I poached the egg for 8 minutes and that was a bit too long. The yolk was still runny but was starting to set and I like the yolk runnier than that. So I'm thinking 6 minutes next time.
