  • Spray Pan: Apply cooking spray all over the pan. For easier removal, line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper.
  • Crack Eggs: Crack 12 large raw eggs into the pre-sprayed pan.
  • Pressure Cook Egg Loaf: Pour 1 cup (250ml) cold water and place a trivet steamer rack in the Instant Pot Pressure Cooker. Carefully layer the pan of cracked raw eggs on top. Close lid and pressure cook at High Pressure for 5 minutes + 9 minutes Natural Release. Open the lid carefully.
  • Chop & Enjoy: remove egg loaf from Instant Pot & set aside on a chopping board to cool. With a knife, chop the egg loaf for egg salad or potato salad. Ta da! Easy peasy. No ice-bath, no peeling!


Best Pressure Cooking Time: it may vary depending on your egg size, quantity of eggs, altitude, size of pan (width, depth), types of pan (thickness, material), the temperature of the eggs (room temperature vs. straight from the fridge), freshness of the eggs. This recipe provides a general guideline for you to test and adjust to suit your eggs.
