Instant Pot Hard-boiled Eggs

I love making hard boiled eggs in the Instant Pot. They always come out with the result I want and I don’t have to worry about watching the Pot to make sure it doesn’t boil over or anything like that.

It’s a great way to prep eggs for the week ahead while you need to be focusing on something else because you don’t have to pay too much attention to them while they cook. It takes about 5 minutes for my Instant Pot to come to pressure and they cook in 5 minutes. Then I let the pressure release for 5 minutes. Pretty easy to remember: 5, 5, 5.
