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 got surprised with a trip to @Disneyland for Valentine’s Day. It’s so crowded because of the long weekend. There’s even lines for the bathrooms - every bathroom. We haven’t gone on many rides, but we’ve checked out more shows than before and looked around for hidden mickeys. The weather has been perfect too. ⁣
⁣
I hope you’re on some adventures this long weekend. What are you up to?⁣

  • We rarely get to drive over the Golden Gate Bridge. I hate tolls and I also hate driving over bridges, but this was too much fun to not. ⁣
⁣
The kids fell asleep right before we even made it, but I was going to go for it. I’m glad we made a trip out of it, even though the car ended up breaking down. Nobody stopped to help. The few people I did get to ask refused to help 🤷🏽‍♀️⁣
⁣
At least we got to check it out. 🌉
  • Dreamer is a dream. This wrap is gorgeous. I loved being able to test it all weekend in the city. ⁣

  • I’ve been looking for any copies of my maternity photos with Dumpling since I suck and I can’t find my copies. @bijoubabywearing was able to find some of me wrapping Tot in Baskerville Boardwalk and I couldn’t be happier. I love the bubbles in this one. @paintingskies did such a great job with this shoot. My family had so much fun with her. ⁣

  • When your friend @koalacuddlesbabywearing  needs shots for upcoming educational material for @happybaby and you drop what you’re doing at @disneyland to check out their onbuhimos 😂💕⁣

This Marigold onbuhimo was easy to get in the shoulder to shoulder height and pretty comfortable. I might need to snag one. ⁣

  • Playing with this @heirloomcarrier has been so much fun. I haven’t played with dupioni before and it was so supportive. A little crunchy but I’ll take it with the ultimate support. ⁣
