Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs
Hi, everyone! Today I am excited to share a huge moment of utter egg joy from the family kitchen. I am going to share the steaming method for easy to peel hard boiled eggs using Instant Pot and an egg rack. The Instant Pot has been all the rage across kitchens everywhere. Now with all kinds of fancy pants tools, you can create meals literally in an instant! And yes, this now includes fantastic steamed hard boiled eggs that are perfectly cooked and easy to peel.
The Instant Pot pressure cooker has really taken cooking hard boiled eggs to a new level. It is now super fast to prep eggs for tuna salad, deviled eggs, and for slicing and dicing for salads galore.
Former Krups Egg Cooker Fan
I was a true Krups fan until now. You can see my review of the Krups egg cooker here.
But honestly, now that I can use my Instant Pot to steam perfect hard boiled eggs, it will take a real miracle to pull me away from this simple and fast method.
I have little by little been falling in love with my Instant Pot. I think my favorite recipes have been super fast soups and succulent shredded BBQ chicken. Learning to make boiled eggs in this revolutionary kitchen tool has been a real game changer. Now, let’s get cooking!
I am trying to be diligent and share the needed kitchen tools above the recipe for your convenience.
