You can make hard boiled eggs in the Instant Pot, or any other pressure cooker. I love eggs made in the Instant Pot, they are cooked perfectly, and quickly.
Hard boiled eggs can be challenging. If you cook them too long, the egg yolks can get a green hue on them. If you don't cook them long enough, you can't use them for recipes. Hard boiled eggs make a great high protein snack. I also love them in creamed eggs on toast. So you can boil the eggs. You can also cook them in an Instant Pot. The Instant Pot is a particular brand of a pressure cooker.
I love my Instant Pot; you can cook rice, steam, saute, slow cook, make yogurt, and use this as a pressure cooker. This kitchen appliance is one I use every single week. I love it; it has a stainless steel insert so you can always scrub it nice and clean. So if you are wondering if you can make eggs in the Instant Pot, you can.
What I love about preparing hard-cooked eggs this way is that they come out perfectly. If you aren't super attentive, you may have eggs that are overcooked. Let's talk about what you need to do to cook perfect hard boiled eggs in your Instant Pot.
You can cook eggs in the Instant Pot easily. I like to cook mine a dozen at a time. I prefer either eggs from my mother's chickens, or I will buy some organic eggs that I often buy at Costco.
Next goes in 1 cup of water. The eggs steam instead of being fully submerged. I think this gives you an almost fluffy yolk on the inside.
You will need to place the eggs on a wire rack inside of the Instant Pot. I used the one that came with the Instant Pot. If you don't have the one that came with the pot you can use a stainless steel rack as long as it fits inside of the pot.
You will put the lid on. Set the pressure cooker to high, and for 7 minutes of pressure.
