Pressure Cooker Hard Cooked Eggs

When I was looking for recipes to try when I first got my Instant Pot I kept seeing over and over again people raving over how easy and tasty hard boiled eggs are in an electric pressure cooker.

I was a little skeptical the first time I tried them because it just seemed odd. But with how fast they were to make and how easy they are to peel, I was a convert. There are times the shells will be a bit stubborn. I would say 98% of the time they’re easy enough my three-year-old nephew can do it without help and not make a mess.

You may have to play around with cooking times because there are a lot of variables. How your particular pressure cooker cooks, the eggs themselves, and whether or not you’re having a good hair day. Okay, I’m kidding about the last one.
