Are you looking for a quick, fail-proof hard boiled egg for breakfast, snacks or Easter eggs? Our Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs are a fool proof way to cook up perfectly creamy, easy peel hard boiled eggs every time in an electric pressure cooker.
Place eggs into your pot. (Rack is not necessary.)
Put lid on and turn valve to seal.
Set to high pressure for 5 minutes, leaving the warming feature on.
Your pressure cooker will take about 5 minutes to reach pressure, then cook for 5 minutes, after cooking, leave on warm setting for 5 more minutes.
Quick release and carefully remove pot from the unit.
Immediately add cold water to pot to stop eggs from cooking.
Keep in fridge until ready to peel and eat.
It takes my pressure cooker about 5 minutes to reach pressure, but time to reach pressure may vary.
If you are using an 8-quart Instant Pot, you may need to use a half cup more liquid to make sure your Instant Pot will come up to pressure.

As with any of our recipes, carb counts, calorie counts and nutritional information varies greatly. As a result, your nutritional content depends on which products you choose to use when cooking this dish.
Finally, all electric pressure cookers cook differently, so cooking times are always a basic guideline. Recipes should always be tested first in your own electric pressure cooker and time adjusted as needed.
