The first time I made boiled eggs in the Instant Pot I was amazed! Our family used to raise chickens, so I’ve made plenty of boiled eggs in my day, but I had almost given up making them because I was so sick of the shells sticking to the eggs and my deviled eggs looking mangled. And then the Instant Pot. Yes, I just changed your life…
- Add 1 Cup of water into Instant Pot.
- Carefully place eggs in an egg rack. If you don’t have an egg rack, you can pretend you do by laying a few outer rings of mason jar lids on the bottom of the pot. The goals is to help the eggs stay still-ish, so they don’t clank together and crack.
- Place the lid on the Instant Pot and set to “seal.”
- Press the “Egg” option on your Instant Pot. If you don’t have that option, just adjust your settings to high pressure for 5 minutes.
- After cook time is done, let pressure release naturally for 5 minutes. I usually set a timer on my phone, so I don’t forget about it in the next room.
- Once 5 minutes has passed, if there is still steam to be released, go ahead and manually vent.
- Once all the steam is released, open the lid and carefully remove the eggs from the pressure cooker with silicone tipped tongs or a slotted spoon, and immediately place into an ice water bath for 5 minutes. This is an important step, so that your shells will practically slip right off the eggs when you peel them!
- After the eggs have been in ice bath for 5 minutes, remove eggs from ice bath and peel! You are welcome!
Enjoy your boiled eggs plain or use them to make Not Your Mama’s Deviled Eggs, Tarragon Tuna salad, or a Avocado BLT Chopped Salad
