How to make hard boiled eggs in the instant pot with the 5-5-5 Method!

Hard boiled eggs are incredibly useful. So many recipes depend on them: deviled eggs, egg salad, potato salad. You can eat them for breakfast, as a snack, or as part of a healthy box lunch. And, of course, you can have fun hiding and hunting for them at Easter.

They’re so handy, I often like to cook up a whole dozen at a time just to have on hand. My oven-roasting method is good for this, but it takes about 45 minutes from start to finish. When I need hard-boiled eggs for a recipe, that’s kind of a long time to wait.

Luckily, my Instant Pot has come to the rescue once again. It can have a whole batch of boiled eggs ready in about half the time they’d take in the oven. Just put them on a trivet in the pot, give them five minutes at high pressure, five minutes to release the steam, and five more in an ice water bath to cool them down so they’re ready to peel.

And there you have them: perfectly cooked eggs, ready to turn into the masterpiece of your choice.
