Imagine this: Creamy Rich . Refreshingly Crunchy . Satisfyingly Chunky to the bite .

Adjust Seasoning & Chill in Fridge


Kosher salt and ground black pepper to taste


Taste the salad and season with more kosher salt & fresh ground black pepper to taste.

*Pro Tip: You will want the egg salad to be a little on the salty side because chilling it in the refrigerator will decrease the perception of seasoning.

Cover & place egg salad in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours.

Hi there,
new to Instapot cooking. So far all of the recipes we have tried from you have been wonderful. I was just wondering if there was any thought to providing nutritional information to the recipes in the future?

Jane

Hi, can I use butter instead of cooking spray to grease the pan? Thanks!

Gypsy

Ok, this was really really good! The only thing was I think the eggs needed 6 min instead of 5. Also I used a local sweet spicy pickle instead of regular ones. Other than that perfection. Thanks for the recipe!5 stars

Gypsy

Nope I was totally wrong 6 minutes is too long. LoL

linda

Hello. What changes would need to be made if I wanted to make half this amount? Would I just half all of the ingredients and would I need to adjust any cooking time? Thanks!

Thomas

Does the steamer rack float on top of the eggs?

Dombroski Diane

Cooking eggs in the pot is wonderful! We make stuffed eggs often. I love this web site thanks a bunch from South Alabama on the Gulf Coast!

Mavis Garland

Your instructions for making hard cooked eggs is wonderful – I’ve never had eggs peel so easily no matter how many tips I followed – until I tried your IP instructions.

All your recipes turn out exactly as you say – Thank you for the recipes and all the help you give everyone that asks.
Will be making this egg loaf for the egg salad soon.

That samdwich looks YUM. I’ll be making this soon for lunchboxes. As I have no hob or oven at the moment as we’re renovating the whole kitchen, our Instant Pot has been a lifesaver… especially recipes like this one and PIP one-pot meals. Thanks 🙂

Cammy

Thank you for the recipe. My daughter loves egg salad. This will make a great 50th birthday lunch for her! (Hard to believe my baby is almost 50). Now that my hubby is retired, I seem to live in the kitchen! Before, he carried his breakfast & lunch to work with him. Now, I fix it for him. So I am cooking all sorts of things. Today, I had smoked, peppercorn crusted, sliced turkey (left from his retirement dinner & frozen) that I made sandwiches with. I added chips and fresh cherry tomatoes and he was happy. For dinner, I… Read more »

I just made egg salad sandwichs for a funeral tomorrow and forgot to use this method. My husband when he walked in and saw the eggs in the pot said Kim You were going to use the IP. I rolled my eyes and said ?*&?. I think this is so cool an idea and next time I will. By the way I use everything in your egg salad except the dill pickle and rice vinegar. That sounds like a yummy addition, next time. I love your recipes.
