Deviled Eggs in the Instant Pot
Deviled eggs are a treat in our house, and making them perfectly in the Instant Pot is so quick and easy, it will amaze you.

Usually, when I buy eggs, I only buy a dozen because there are only two of us and I don’t want them to go bad before we have a chance to eat them. We have a produce truck that comes to our neighborhood and he has milk, eggs, fruits, and vegetables on his truck. Our grocery store is almost a mile away, so we are very happy the vegetable man comes round with his goods.  I bought 18 eggs because he only had the tray of 18. What do you do with 18 eggs?  Why you make Deviled Eggs, of course.

How to Make Pretty Eggs

To keep eggs from overcooking and turning green, I boil them for 2 minutes then let them sit in the hot water for 20 minutes.  If you don’t have an Instant Pot, this is the way to go because they will be perfectly done.

Let me tell you, the Instant Pot is great for this job.  I was a little leary of a pressure cooker doing a good job of keeping the yolks in the middle of the whites as when boiling them, they tend to settle on the bottom and you have one white that is very thin, and the other half quite fat. Even worse, sometimes the white is so thin that it breaks and the person holding it gets a handful of egg yolk.  That’s not fun or entertaining. Well, surprise, the Instant Pot, because the eggs are not moving around, the yolks don’t settle to the bottom, they are right in the center where they should be.  They are perfectly cooked, nice and yellow and fluffy.

Let’s Make Deviled Eggs in the Instant Pot

Mise En Place

I like to pipe the egg yolks into the whites.  I think it makes a very nice presentation.  If you want to do this, after attaching the end and coupler, put the piping bag in a tall glass so you can easily fill it. You will probably find you have a little of the stuffing still in the bag after filling all the whites.  That’s okay, you worked hard, it’s for you – cook’s treat.
