10+ Ways to Cook Eggs Using an Instant Pot

10+ Ways To Make Eggs With Instant Pot

Eggs are one of the most wonderful foods on the planet: they are versatile, nourishing, satiating and super affordable. They’re not a complicated or fussy food to cook in the first place, but the Instant Pot certainly makes cooking them simpler. Besides, it’s fun to experiment! Scrambled, poached or hard-boiled, there are many ways to prepare eggs using an Instant Pot pressure cooker.

Another bonus is the Instant Pot’s ability to cook quite a few eggs at once. If you’re meal prepping, you know eggs are on the menu! Here are some inventive ways to use the pressure cooker for eggs.

Boiled or soft-boiled eggs using an Instant Pot


Kirbie Cravings does a great job at taking you down the timeline from soft to hard-boiled for any taste. Fortunately, in the Instant Pot, there is little guesswork. Whether you like a rich, creamy centre or you want the thing cooked through, the IP can do the job perfectly. Oh, and one of the most impressive feats? The skin peeling! If you’ve ever peeled boiled eggs, you know how frustrating it can be. With pressure cooking, it generally pulls away in one fell swoop. That’s enough to convince me. Plus, even a “hard boil” takes just five minutes!

Instant Pot poached eggs


If you’ve tried poaching an egg before only to fail… over and over, even (or maybe that’s just me), you’re probably looking for an alternative. See, it’s not really that hard, and maybe sometimes you still yield edible results, but let the Instant Pot give you that perfect, cafe-worthy poach every time. The Yum Yum Factor uses silicone cups for this simple version that looks and tastes GREAT on a crisp piece of your favourite type of toast.

Pressure cooker frittata or quiche


You can use the format for this bacon and broccoli crustless quiche from Delicious Obsessions to make any frittata, quiche or breakfast bake you can dream up. Pre-roasted veggies make a lovely addition. Toss in some chorizo or sausage for a boost of healthy fats and beautiful flavour matched with texture; you can even cook it in the bottom of the pot with the Sauté function! Toss in some caramelised onions, some toasty sweet potato cubes and your favourite spices. This is the best nutrient-dense morning meal to have handy, break off a slice of and pop out the door with. The Instant Pot only makes the ease of prepping it… well, easier.

Egg cups or muffins


Grab yourself some handy dandy silicone muffin cups – a favourite Instant Pot accessory – and get to work! The combinations are endless in these grab and go breakfast staples. This recipe from A Pinch of Healthy has turkey sausage and peppers, but the fillings are endless opportunities for you to tap into your creative kitchen prowess.

Devilled eggs


These “lazy devils” from Nom Nom Paleo are an awesome idea for anyone who doesn’t want to commit to the full-on process of making devilled eggs, but there are plenty more ideas where that came from! This is the perfect appetiser dish to tote to a party, and people will love it whether you top them or stuff them with the classic yolk and mayo mixture. Plus, you can feel good about serving guests or kids some protein-heavy, healthy eats. This is a build on the boiled egg, but being a bit devilish has never been easier than it is with pressure cooking.

    I have seven yogurt jars leftover from a yogurt machine that died a glorious death. Would it be possible to make egg dishes in these jars? It would make grabbing lunch on the fly really easy.

      Lucy, I can’t make any guarantees but I’ve seen some great recipes that use this method with eggs. It certainly sounds like a tasty and healthy lunch so I hope you give it a go!

    I agree one of the most impressive thing I’ve got my IP to do was easy peeled hard boiled eggs. I really enjoy using the Instant Pot to hard boil my farm fresh eggs. For years I boiled them on the stove, and they were soooo hard to peel! It was so frustrating! I tried all the tricks, like adding baking soda but nothing seemed to work. I pretty much gave up on the idea of easy to peel eggs. When I got the IP, I wasn’t expecting for them to be easier to peel, but I was looking forward to throwing them in the IP and not having to turn on the stove, or wait for water to boil. Yada…yada… I was so surprised with the first batch I made, and how easy it was to peel the eggs!
