I’ve shared how I make boiled eggs in my instant pot before in this blog I posted when I first bought my pressure cooker a year ago!

I’ve since made several batch of boiled eggs. Sometimes they’re for my own snacks and sometimes they are to make deviled eggs for a party! Of the many reasons why I love making boiled eggs this way…I do love how simple the recipe is to remember. In fact, because pressure cooking is more about the density of a single item in the pot, the cook time does not change whether you make 6 eggs or 18 eggs. I’ve made both!

The easiest way for me to remember the times is 5-5-5.

5 minutes high pressure.

5 minutes release.

5 minutes ice bath.

They peel super easy too. Previously I made my boiled eggs in the microwave and found that to be very easy too! The main difference being the ability to make more than 4 eggs at a time. My little microwave egg cooker did get a lot of use before 2018 though!
