Instant Pot Eggs

Want to know how to make perfect hard boiled or soft boiled eggs in the Instant Pot (electric pressure cooker/slow cooker/steamer-in-one)? This simple formula will give you perfect, easier to peel eggs every time. Of course, if you prefer to make them on the stove you can use this foolproof Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs recipe.

I've been using my Instant Pot to make eggs all weekend and finally got my soft boiled eggs and hard boiled eggs perfect. The best part is they were easy to peel, and the yolks were bright yellow. I don't think I'll be making them any other way!

A few ways I like to use hard boiled eggs:

  • I always keep a batch of hard boiled eggs on hand in my refrigerator for breakfast on the go, add to salads, etc.
  • Have you tried a breakfast salad? I first had one a few years ago and think it’s genius. I prefer to make them with soft boiled eggs, but you can use whatever you like.
  • Make deviled eggs. Or for a twist on the classic, guacamole deviled eggs.
  • Make a healthier egg salad by swapping mayo for mashed avocado.
  • Top them on your avocado toast.
  • Use them to whip up a quick egg sandwich, this is my daughter Karina’s favorite egg sandwich.
  • Add them to mason jar salads for protein, this is one of my favorites.

Instant Pot Tips

  • Lock the steam valve before pressure cooking. Pressure will never build if the valve is turned to venting.
  • Don’t fill the pot more than two-thirds full with any liquid or stew. Keep in mind some foods expand, such as rice and oatmeal.
  • If your food is undercooked, re-cover the pot, lock the steam valve, re-pressurize, and cook again for a few extra minutes.

Hard boiled eggs will keep in the refrigerator for 1 week. If you don’t have an Instant Pot and prefer to make them on the stove, here’s my foolproof method for perfect hard boiled eggs every time.
