easy hard boiled eggs
When my slow cooker died after 6 months of owning it, I decided to invest in an instant pot. I’m so glad I did. The first thing I made, were hard boiled eggs. So easy. So fast. The eggs were perfect. They peeled beautifully and I was able to make deviled eggs.
1 dozen eggs
1 cup cold water
bowl with ice water in it
In your Instant Pot, put the steam trivet and water in the pot. Add the eggs onto the trivet and seal the Instant pot.
Cook the eggs for 5 minutes on high pressure.
Once done, let the IP sit for 5 additional minutes and then quick release the pressure.
Carefully place the eggs in the ice water (I used a ladle spoon to remove them because they are so hot). Let them cool for 5 minutes. Add more ice if needed.
Begin peeling the eggs. I prefer to tap them on the counter once and start peeling. Run under water as needed to remove the shell.
Tip: For easy to peel eggs, I recommend using eggs that are at least 2 weeks old. If you are buying from the store, you should be find to use immediately. Farm fresh eggs we’ve found need to age 2 weeks to peel easier.
How do you serve your hard boiled eggs?
