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.

This @2lambie reverse onbuhimo is our favorite when we go grocery shopping. Dumpling is high enough where she can see everything, but not quite touch anything. โฃ

I got a chance to check out @heritagedistillingโ€™s award-winning BSB @BrownSugarBourbon and it is simply delicious. Itโ€™s got that brown sugar taste with just a hint of cinnamon, which makes it the perfect drink as we transition to autumn.โฃ
โฃ
The brown sugar flavor is amazing with that bit of light sweetness. It really helps pull in those favors in cocktails. We made a Blackberry Smash (blackberries have been on sale since itโ€™s season!) and a Rickey (who doesnโ€™t love a Rickey?!). They really complemented our weekend meal.โฃ

Thank you @heritagedistilling & @brownsugarbourbon for gifting me these products! #DrinkingBSB #BrownSugarBourbon #sponsored #ad

  • Iโ€™ve been holding off on posting these @dermae products because I wanted to try them. Iโ€™ve placed them on my tattoos and on Birdieโ€™s scars from boo-boos over the summer & they work AMAZING! They keep your skin so moisturized and the scars have been fading nicely over time. My tattoos are looking nice and bright. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
