Cooking Hard Boiled Eggs in a Pressure Cooker

Well it’s Easter time and it’s time to cook hard boil eggs to dye.  It’s a tradition in our family to dye the eggs, even though no young kids anymore.  This year I decided to try and cook the eggs in our pressure cooker we purchased a few months ago.

How to Cook Hard Boiled Eggs in a Pressure Cooker

You will need a basket of some sort because you want to elevate the eggs above the water because you are going to steam them.  Place the eggs in the basket,  I fit 18 eggs in my cooker, add 1 cup of water, and set the pressure cooker to 6 minutes.

When the eggs are done, release the steam using the quick release method and immediate place the eggs in an ice bath.  I used a large pot filled with ice water.

How do they Peel?

The eggs were very easy to peel.  As you can see in the below photo,  I was able to remove the bottom half of the shell in one piece.  It slid right off the egg.
