Recipe: Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs

March 31, 2018 No Comments

So, who’s behind on hard boiling eggs for Easter to color? I’m always a little behind when it comes to the holidays, but this year, I think we did it in time. I tend to lag on the hard boiling of the eggs, because I can never make them right. Either they’re in too long and they crack and explode, or it’s not enough time and they go bad faster. See? No luck.

But I got the Instant Pot for my birthday last year and I’ve been using it to make everything. So when I found out I can make the perfect hard boiled egg in there? ON IT. Hard boiling eggs in a pressure cooker makes them SO easy to peel as well. The shells basically fell off when I went to peel some to eat. I can’t wait to make tuna fish salad, egg salad and chicken salad after Easter. Maybe even some deviled eggs.

The kiddos had a blast coloring eggs with dad. Birdie had to get the bright colors with glitter. Tot was just excited to play with dye. His hands looked like they belonged to the Hulk after he was done. But they had fun and we got some great photos out of it.

Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs

Quick and easy to peel hard boiled eggs in the Instant Pot.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 12 Large Eggs
  • 1 cup Water
  • Ice

Instructions

  1. Place trivet into Instant Pot and pour in 1 cup of water.

  2. Place eggs on trivet. Feel free to layer your eggs on top of one another. 

  3. Close lid and set the Instant Pot for 5 minutes on manual at HIGH pressure.

  4. Allow pressure to release naturally for 5 minutes. Then quick release pressure, very carefully.

  5. Take eggs out of the Instant Pot and place into an ice bath for approximately 5 minutes.

  6. Remove from ice bath and your eggs are ready to peel.

Recipe Notes

My trivet came with my Instant Pot. That's what I used.

I actually put in 18 eggs this last time around, but I normally only put in 12. Same timing for both.

  • I volunteered in my daughter’s classroom for Thanksgiving. I helped on the food line so I had to tie Dumpling to my back and make turkey sandwiches. We do teach the kids that we don’t actually celebrate Thanksgiving, and the teachers discussed the truth with the kids. I’m glad I didn’t have to step in like previous years 🤦🏽‍♀️⁣

My tote bag from @shopkindredtogether is my favorite though. I’m able to fit everything in there. A quick link to the shop is in my profile & you can use code APRILOCT to save 💰 ⁣

  • We were so lucky to be able to check out the Flip & Spin for the Win bundle - thanks to @PowerYourFun. The bundle included Laser Launchers (which I can’t pry out of Tot’s hands), the Mini Cyclone Stunt Car, and Turbo Tops Gyro Cars - which you see pictured here. These are our favorite part of the bundle, the kiddos are constantly try to do tricks with them. ⁣

  • Yesterday was my birthday! I’m thirty-something (the something is silent 🤪) and it was a good day. A made it back from a 10 day trip just in time to celebrate. The kids were so excited to make mom’s day fun. ⁣⁣

My sister always grabs a red velvet bundt cake for me and I love it. It’s my favorite. My grandmother used to bake me a red velvet cake every year when I was younger and it’s important to me to have it. ⁣

  • I posted about the awesome @pjmasks PJ Masks Seeker about a month ago. I grabbed it at @target and kept it hidden until it was Tot’s birthday. He had already completely forgotten about it & it was a wonderful surprise to open on his day 🎂 He’s been playing with it nonstop and his sisters keep trying to get a turn. ⁣

Thank you to MomSelect for gifting us this toy. It’s the perfect toy for this @pjmasks obsessed family. #ad⁣

  • My middle child. My wild child. He’s officially 5 years old and 1 day. I tried to make sure he had a fun filled day yesterday and now I’m exhausted. This year he decided he didn’t like cake and asked for donuts instead 🍩 ⁣

Happy birthday Tot 💕
  • We saved this Star Wars coding kit for Tot’s birthday and it was a hit! He was totally interested in putting it together and making things work. He’s my little tinker. ⁣

We melted at the pumpkin patch this weekend. Now we are hiding from smoke and hoping our power doesn’t go out. ⁣

How’s your weekend treating you?
  • Prism Black went live today and I’m so excited for them to get their new homes. This kaleidoscope weave is so grippy and textured. It really locks those passes in tight. 🌈 💎⁣

  • Corn mazes are our favorite 🌽 We try to stop at one every year and grab some photos at the pumpkin patch. The kids love the corn pit. I love listening to them get along and discuss the corn maze map and answer the trivia so we know which way to go. Such a great adventure. ⁣
