Hard Cooked Eggs - Instant Pot

A friend loaned me her Instant Pot (electric pressure cooker) to test over the next few days and I started with this easiest "recipe" for eggs.

Basically, I cooked a dozen eggs for 7 minutes at low pressure.  Release the steam immediately after the timer beeped, and let them cool a bit.  (I moved them to a bowl of cold water.)

In just a few minutes they were cool enough to peel, which was the really big part of the show!  After cracking them around the middle and removing a few pieces, almost all of the shells came off in two halves.  It was pretty impressive and the eggs were perfectly cooked.

Slightly more detailed instructions here.

Here’s how easy it is to make Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs:
Plug in your Instant Pot.
Place the rack that came with your Instant Pot in the bottom.
Place desired number of eggs on the rack.
Put 1 cup of water in the bottom of the Instant Pot.
Put the lid on and lock the lid.
Turn on the manual setting and set your Instant Pot to 7 minutes.
Once your Instant Pot is finished use the quick release valve.
Allow Eggs to cool in the fridge until they are cool enough to handle.
Peel, enjoy or make deviled eggs!
