The process for making hard boiled eggs in your instant pot is silly easy! Start with the trivet in your instant pot. Next, add water to your liner. Then add in your eggs. You can make as many or as little as you’d like! Feel free to pile them up, just don’t fill your pot more than 2/3 full. That’s a lot of eggs :).
Once the pressure is released, immediately add the eggs to a bowl of ice water to cool off and stop the cooking. When cooled, peel away! It won’t take too long. Then store in the fridge until you’re ready to eat or use in a recipe. Peeled or unpeeled, hard boiled eggs keep for up to one week in the fridge
