The easy way to make Instant Pot Meal Prep Eggs. No peeling required! Fast way to make egg salad or just eat with butter, salt, and pepper for a low carb snack!
I saw several posts for making an “egg loaf” on the IP forum, so this is definitely not my recipe, technique, or invention. But it’s a pretty handy way to be able to make a lot of eggs at a time, and not even have to worry about peeling them before they’re ready to be used up in a variety of ways. On the off chance that you don’t spend all your free time on the IP forum, I figured I’d share this here. Pictures will tell this story better than can I, so I’m going to just do this with the pictures below, and add captions as needed.

Quick way to make eggs for things like egg salad or hard-boiled eggs with salt and pepper. No peeling required!
- 6 eggs
Place two cups of water into the inner liner of your Instant Pot, and place a trivet on top
Crack 6 eggs into a heatsafe bowl, keeping the yolks intact. Cover the bowl with foil and place the bowl on the trivet.
Set your Instant Pot on Manual, High Pressure for 4 minutes, and release pressure quickly.
Pop out the really ugly loaf from your bowl. As you can see i used a a little rectangular pan.
This is what it looks like when you cut into it, where the whites and yolks are still separate
Once you dice the eggs, this is what it looks like.
Now your eggs can be made into egg salad, or we just add butter, salt and pepper and eat them plain.
