One of my favorite snack and lunch items, packed with protein is hard-boiled eggs!
Now, I’m not going to pretend that boiling eggs on the stove is hard but the Instant Pot does hard-boiled eggs like a champ! And they are super-duper easy to peel!!
Here’s the method I use every time and it hasn’t failed me yet. (this is for hard-boiled, if you like them a bit softer you’ll need to adjust the timing a bit until you find your perfect method)
1 cup of water in the bottom of the IP. Place trivet in the pot and put all the eggs in!! I’ve seen some do as many as two dozen at a time! So this is a really awesome plan if you are making deviled eggs or salad for lots of folks.
Place the lid on and make sure your spout is set to seal. Set it for manual (high pressure) for 6 minutes.
When it is done the IP will beep and then will start the count up…. this is naturally releasing the pressure… I do this for 6 minutes. (set a timer so you don’t forget.)
Then release the rest of the pressure.. open and scoop eggs into an ice water bath and leave for 6 minutes.
I love these mitts for things like grabbing the eggs out!
Once fully cooled these eggs will slide right out of their shell. It’s so easy!!
And now I have a quick snack or even lunch ready to go in the fridge.
I like to make egg salad with mayo, mustard and salt and pepper. I don’t even need bread but if you want to make a yummy sandwich, easy peasy.
Green salads are always better with hard-boiled eggs
And grabbing a hard-boiled egg sprinkled with seasoning salt and pepper for a quick snack is filling and packed with protein!
Happy Instant potting to you all,
