For the easiest deviled eggs, making hard boiled eggs in the Instant Pot will give you perfect, easier to peel eggs every time.
Instant Pot Deviled Eggs
When it comes to making deviled eggs, I keep my ingredients pretty classic, but I love adding little pickle juice to my the yolks for a pop of flavor! This Instant Pot version will give you the easiest eggs to peel, so you can enjoy them for the holidays, potlucks, parties and other gatherings. I have tons of appetizer recipes, but Deviled eggs are my favorite, and what I love most is they are inexpensive and made with ingredients I always have on hand. I also love tuna deviled eggs and guacamole deviled eggs.
How To Make Deviled Eggs
How Do You Boil Eggs So They Peel Easy
- Use your Instant Pot! Eggs cooked in the Instant Pot practically pop right out of there shells! It’s a game changer! You can see my post on how to make PERFECT hard boiled eggs or soft boiled eggs in the Instant Pot.
- Super fresh eggs are going to be hard to peel regardless of what you do, so it’s best NOT to hard boil eggs the same day they are purchased. The best eggs for boiling are at least 10 days old.
- For best results, peel your eggs right after they are cool enough to handle. Fully chilled eggs will not peel well. You can peel your eggs ahead of time and store them in the refrigerator.
How Far Ahead Can I Make Deviled Eggs?
You can make deviled eggs as far as 2 days in advance, keeping the egg whites and the filling separate and refrigerated until the time comes to assemble.

I put a little shake of Worcestershire sauce in mine.
I use pickle relish and mustard to add a bit of crunch and flavor. My co-workers always request my deviled eggs when we’re doing potluck. Instant pot is the BEST for hard-boiled eggs!
Me too!!! Pickle relish and dry mustard. Everyone always asks me to make them. I garnish with paprika, chives and a little shark fin of bacon. I also instapot 5 minutes at low pressure, manually release and chill in cold ice water for 5 minutes and peel right away. I have no problem with fresh eggs this way and I do double racks 14 at a time.
First time doing hardboiled eggs in my instant pot – and this recipe did not disappoint! So good! When I put into my WW calculator, I get 0 blue for 1 serving, and becomes 1 point at 2 servings. Even better!
INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!! So easy and delicious.
The eggs cooked perfectly in the instant pot, but I found the filling a little salty. Next time I’ll add the pickle juice first and then salt to taste. I did like the pickle flavour, and they are easy to make!
Howling will these keep?
These look delicious! I am going to make these for our potluck this weekend. What tip did you use to pipe the filling into the eggs?
What is 5-5-5
5 high pressure
5 quick release
Thank you , I have just purchased an instant pot , I’m a bit afraid of it lol
Again I have been using mainly your recipes for 1 year now & we just love every recipe that we have tried ! I’m down 30 lbs to date
I use the 6-6-6 method, which is 6 minutes pressure cook
6 minutes natural release and then 6 minutes Ice bath. Then you crack and roll a little bit on its side and they peel amazingly!????
I always thought what made the eggs “deviled” was mustard. My family uses dry mustard mixxed in with the mayonaise, salt and pepper.
Just an FYI…”Egg Land’s Best” eggs peel easy no matter how fresh! Probably only available in parts of California but my friend’s family owned the company…they feed those chickens different food! And who would have thought that you could pressure cook eggs? I’ve got to try it!
Egg Lands Best are actually up here in Michigan too 😊
I use pickle juice in my deviled eggs too! I have never added milk before, I will have to try that.
I read somewhere that if you turn the carton of eggs on its side for 24 hours before cooking, the yolks will stay centered when you cook them! Can’t wait to try this! Thank you for your awesome recipes.
I’m guessing that doubling the recipe (12 eggs) would still only need a cup of water and the 5-5-5 timing?
I am the official Deviled Egg Maker, for holidays. I’ve been using the instant pot for eggs for 2 years now and can promise I would’ve bought one years earlier had I know how easy the eggs peel. It’s Amazing!!
I always use the 5-5-5 method, it works perfect!.
How do you know if the yolks are fully cooked? I did 555 but my second batch the yolks were more yellow and mushy like, rather than pastel yellow and kind of powdery. Are they not good to eat? Undercooked?
I see pressure cook for 5 minutes, natural release for 5 minutes…what is the other 5 for?
I read a little further and found the last 5 is ice bath…sorry!
