I used to hate making hard boiled eggs because I would always find a way to screw them up. I can make beautiful meals, but couldn’t boil a freaking egg. The Instant Pot has been a total game changer for me. I will never boil an egg again (unless I want a jammy egg).
There are three steps to make the perfect Instant Pot hard boiled eggs. Cook, Ice Bath and Peel!
- First, I place 1 cup of water in the bottom of the IP then I put the metal trivet in
- I layer the eggs on the trivet, put the lid on, seal the steam valve and set to manual pressure for 5 minutes
- Once the timer goes off, I let it slow release for 5 minutes
- Then I do a quick release and place the eggs in an ice bath (bowl of ice water)
- Once they are cool, I crack them on the counter and peel under cool running water (IP eggs peel so easily)
We love to make a big batch to have on hand in the fridge for snacks, they keep for 5 days typically. I add HB eggs to my Classic Paleo Potato Salad or make a batch of Easy Keto Egg Salad for us to have for lunches.
