Instant Pot Deviled Eggs 

Instant Pot Deviled Eggs

are a must-have side dish at any holiday party or get together. I’m going to show you how to use the Instant Pot to “hard boil” the eggs perfectly every time. Even farm fresh brown eggs that are notoriously hard to peel. The best part of using the Instant Pot to hard boil eggs is it doesn’t matter if you are using white eggs from the grocery store or day-old brown eggs from your backyard. You will get the same consistent results if your cooking 6 eggs or 24 eggs, they will come out perfect using the Instant Pot and the 5-5-5 method.


If you are new to Instant Pot cooking

you have probably heard eggs are one of the easiest things to cook as a beginner, but even as a veteran user I can say Instant Pot hard boiled eggs are easy and so versatile. Hard boiled eggs make a great snack, egg salad for a quick lunch, and of course classic holiday side dish deviled eggs. One of the most popular cooking methods for hard boiling is called the 5-5-5 method. All this really means is you cook the eggs for 5 minutes, let the pressure naturally release for 5 minutes, and then your place them in an ice-water bath for 5 minutes before peeling. Depending on how you like your eggs you may change this to a 4-4-4 or 6-6-6, but I have found that the 5-5-5 method works perfectly for me and my farm fresh eggs.

You will need:


  • One dozen eggs
  • 1/3 cup quality mayo
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. granulated garlic
  • 1 dill pickle finely diced or 1 Tbs. dill relish
  • 1 tsp. dijon mustard

Optional Toppings:

  • Paprika
  • Green Onions


Once you have successfully hard-boiled and peeled your eggs

you will need to cut them in half lengthwise and carefully spoon or squeeze the yolks out into a separate bowl. Add all of the filling ingredients except paprika and green onions to the bowl with the yolks and use a fork or bean masher like this to combine all ingredients.

Using a spoon, fill each halved egg white with yolk mixture. If desired sprinkle with paprika and green onions. These can be made 24 hours in advance. To keep, cover with plastic wrap or store in Tupperware container and store in the refrigerator until your ready to serve.

Bring these Instant Pot Deviled Eggs to your next holiday party or serve alongside your Thanksgiving or Christmas meal.
