You guys, I have a confession to make. I almost feel stupid writing this post. This has got to be the most simple, crazy quick and easiest thing EVER! It’s not even a real recipe but if you haven’t made Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs yet, you’re doing it wrong.

I’m not even kidding. We go through A LOT of eggs in our house. I’m talking over two dozen, sometimes even 3 per week and my kids are total fiends for hard boiled eggs so I’m always sure to have them on hand ready to go before a big game, after a practice or even for an after school snack.

So what’s wrong with doing it the old fashioned way? Nothing at all BUT once I made eggs in an instant pot my life was forever changed. For one, I had zero cracked eggs. When I hard boil eggs on the stovetop I almost always end up with at least one cracked egg.

But throwing eggs in an instant pot takes the same amount of time and I don’t have any cracked eggs so that’s a win in my book. But the reason why doing hard boiled eggs in an instant pot changed my life was because of the peel factor.

What is the peel factor you may ask? I don’t know about you but most of the time, peeling a hard boiled egg is one of life’s most frustrating experiences. I sometimes end up with more of my egg stuck to the peel and in the garbage than in my belly.

Every single time, without fail, when I have peel an instant pot hard boiled egg it the whole shell has come off effortlessly, leaving my beautiful egg in pristine condition! I couldn’t believe it. These babies are beautiful and cooked to perfection so definitely give it a try!
