You probably don’t know this about me, but, I LOVE small kitchen appliances and gadgets! They’re time-savers, but, they’re fun too! I ran across the ‘Instant Pot Duo‘ and had to have it! Early Christmas present to me! 😉 I just received it yesterday and immediately made steamed cauliflower for a low carb cauli-mash, so delicious! Today I made hard boiled eggs and it worked amazingly! Instant Pot hard boiled eggs are the easiest, walk-away-from-the-pot way to cook eggs!
If you have an Instant Pot, or an electric pressure cooker you have to try cooking your eggs this way! Of course, hard boiled eggs are basic like making a PB&J, but, sometimes I’d forget to watch for the water to boil and the eggs would end up cooking too long. So, this is a set it and forget it, egg cooking miracle!
Pretty ‘Pioneer Woman’ plate and salt and pepper shaker, don’t you think? 🙂
Place 1 cup of water, trivet/rack and mason jar rings into inner pot. Add eggs to jar rings. (If you don’t have mason jar rings, set eggs in a steamer basket and use a folded strip of foil to weave between the eggs to keep them from bumping into each other and cracking as shown below.)
Place lid on cooker housing and turn to closed position, set steam release handle to the ‘sealing’ position. Set cooker to ‘manual’ high and set to cook for 8 minutes. Use ‘quick release’ method. See tips page for steam release methods. Place eggs in ice water to stop cooking until cool. Perfectly done!
Look how easily the shells peeled off!! A dream come true, indeed!
For my deviled eggs, I just mixed the egg yolks with mayo, mustard, salt and pepper and sprinkled with paprika. Super easy and low carb!
Now I can make a weekly batch of hard boiled eggs very quickly and easily to have on hand when I need a protein snack!
