Pressure Cooker Hard Boiled Eggs

I'm so excited to find another great use for my electric pressure cooker! And just in time for Easter. Here's the link to making perfect hard boiled (or soft boiled) eggs in your pressure cooker!. I tried it today for lunch and the eggs came out perfect. And it's so much easier than boiling them on the stove!!

I put the eggs on the trivet and used canning lids to separate my eggs so that they wouldn't bump into each other (see the picture).

This way you can do several at a time - could probably have fit more if I put them in between the canning lids. I put 1 cup of water in cooker and pressured them on low for 6 minutes. I let the pressure go down naturally. And then immediately took the eggs out and soaked them in cold water to stop the cooking. Perfect! And a lot easier to crack than the ones you make on the stove. Enjoy!

Hard Boiled Eggs {Electric Pressure Cooker Recipe}

*This method for cooking hard boiled eggs in the pressure cooker is so much easier than the stove top. It's quick and efficient, you don't have to worry about water boiling over, and the result is perfect hard-boiled eggs every time!

*Note: In my 6 quart Cuisnart Electric pressure cooker I can cook up to 10 eggs at once

INGREDIENTS:
Eggs

EQUIPMENT:
Electric pressure cooker with metal trivet
1- 5 small canning lids
  
DIRECTIONS:
First place the trivet in the bottom of the pressure cooker. Next add about a cup of water. Place the canning lids on the bottom and arrange the eggs in and around the lids. Heat up the pressure cooker until it reaches low pressure and then cook for 6 minutes. Allow the pressure to go down naturally and then immediately remove the eggs and cool them in ice water to stop the cooking process. When they are cool, the eggs will crack with ease, look beautiful, and taste perfect every time!
