It’s so difficult to make hard-boiled eggs – they crack on the stove pot as they roll around in boiling water and make a mess! It’s also impossible to get them cooked at just the right time.
And there is that one extremely embarrassing time where I (Tiffany) put them on the stove and forgot about them. The water boiled away, and they literally ended up exploding all over the kitchen! (True story.)
But an Instant Pot makes things so much easier! Put a cup of water in the bottom and place eggs on the steamer rack. Cook at “Manual” for 5 minutes, then do a quick release and put eggs in cold water.
- 1 cup water
