Easy Pressure Cooker Hard Boiled Eggs
Hard boiled eggs. They were my oldest son’s favorite snack for a long time. Deviled eggs are a favorite appetizer in our family. I was never crazy about making either one. Not because they were difficult to make, but because I hated peeling the eggs. They always wound up with shells sticking and whole chunks of the egg missing.
Once I really started using the electric pressure cooker I decided to try making hard boiled eggs in there. I discovered this is the easiest way ever to make hard boiled eggs! No shells sticking on there and no chunks of egg missing. There are different “formulas” out there for how to make them, most involving a set of three numbers like 5-5-5, which stands for the amount of time needed for each step. Those formulas are all unnecessary. Don’t waste your time. Today I am sharing the easiest way to make Pressure Cooker Hard Boiled Eggs with you. Here’s how I make them.

- electric pressure cooker (I used a 6 qt Mealthy because it lives on my counter and comes with pressure cooker accessories including the steaming basket you need to make this recipe.)
- measuring cups
- 12 eggs
- 1 cup water
Place one cup of water into the cooking pot of the pressure cooker.
Place the eggs into the steaming basket.
Put the steaming basket into the pot.
Put the lid on the pot and close to seal.
Cook at manual high pressure for 2 minutes.
Once the cooking cycle has finished, allow the pressure to release naturally for 15 minutes.
Peel the eggs and use as you like.
