How to make Instant Pot Hard Boiled Egg Loaf:
- Using a small bowl or baking dish sprayed with nonstick spray, crack the eggs into the bowl. I used 8 eggs, but you could do more if you need more.
- Place 1 cup of water into the instant pot. Place steam rack into the bottom of the pot, and place the bowl on top of the steam rack.
- Close the instant pot and make sure the pressure release is in the sealed position. Cook on manual or high pressure for 5 minutes. When the time is up, allow the instant pot hard boiled egg loaf to natural release the pressure for 5 more minutes, then release the remaining pressure.
- If you are using a smaller bowl (less than 7 inches) or more than 8 eggs, you may need to add 2-3 more minutes.
- Carefully remove the bowl from the instant pot (this is why a removable steam rack with handles comes in handy) from the IP, and slide the eggs onto a cutting board.
- Chop the hard boiled eggs up! Don't want to CHOP up the eggs? Use a cheese grater to grate the eggs, use a pastry blender to slice the eggs, or use a wire rack and PUSH the eggs through! All awesome HACKS!
Tips for making Instant Pot Hard Boiled Egg Loaf:
- You should remember when using the Instant Pot, that the time it takes to cook the recipe (5 mins), is not the total time of the recipe. You need to give the pot some time to ‘come to pressure’.
- Be sure to spray the dish you use to cook the eggs with nonstick spray. If you don't, it will be a mess to remove them. Spraying the dish slightly allows the eggs to side right out!
- You need to use an oven safe baking dish inside your instant pot. I like this 24 ounce dish that is 7 inches in diameter. This will fit in the 6qt or 8qt Instant Pot models.
- Use a removable steam rack inside your Instant Pot. A removable steam rack has handles that allows you to pull the bowl out on the rack, making it super easy to remove. I like this silicone removable steam rack.
- I have a 6qt. Instant Pot that I make the Instant Pot Hard Boiled Egg loaf in, but you could also use the 8qt. Instant pot. I suggest the 8 quart instant pot if you have a bigger family.
