Hard Boiled Eggs in the INSTANT POT

I am so EGGScited to share with you another way to use the Instant Pot. Making up a batch of hard boiled eggs just got easier using the Instant Pot. Not that it is real tough to boil an egg, and you will only save around 3 minutes, there ARE some great benefits by using this 7 in 1 pressure cooker to cook eggs.

1-   You can cook a lot more eggs in less time

2-  No babysitting required. Once you begin the process you can go do other things.

3-  There is no green or grey ring around the yolk. Usually caused by overcooking.

4-  They are easy to peel.

 

All you need is

  • Instant Pot If you don’t have one, I hope you seriously think about it. This baby is great for a lot more things than eggs, trust me!
  • Eggs
  • 1 cup water
  • steam basket or rack

This is what you do

Place steamer basket or interior rack in the pot. Gently place the desired amount of eggs in. You can get up to 16 large eggs in the pot.

Add 1 cup water

Choose [manual]

Reduce time to 7-8 minutes

This time will give you a soft firm yolk. If you want them cooked more, simply add 1 minute. If you want them more runny, reduce by 1 minute. It’s all up to your liking. After the first batch, you will have a good idea of what you like.

When the buzzer goes off, let it sit for 2 minutes.

What I love about the Instant Pot, is that you can tell how long it has been sitting after the buzzer goes off. In this case, wait for it to say L2:00. Then manually release whatever pressure is left by pressing the pressure valve away from you.

 

Place the eggs in a bowl of very cold water.

Let them sit in there for 5 minutes. You can either eat them right away or store in the fridge for up to one week.

If you are storing your eggs, I do recommend peeling them before you store them. This will make them much easier to peel.

Place the cooked eggs in a zip bag with a paper towel in the refrigerator and you have a protein packed nugget at your fingertips.

Boiled eggs are great for

  • breakfast
  • added to a salad
  • eaten plain for a healthy snack
  • tossed in stir fried rice
  • sliced on bread for yummy sandwich
  • chopped,added to tuna and a little mayo for an egg salad

However you eat your eggs, I hope you enjoy making a batch of hard boiled eggs up in the Instant Pot.

Feel free to share some of your great hard boiled egg ideas with the rest of us.

Enjoy your day!
