  • Important Step - 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 steamer rack in 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.
  • Prepare Remaining Ingredients: While the egg loaf is pressure cooking, prepare remaining ingredients.
  • Chop Egg Loaf: Remove egg loaf from Instant Pot & set aside on a chopping board to cool. Once cool to touch, finely chop the egg loaf. Allow the chopped eggs to cool to room temperature.
  • Make Salad Dressing: In a large mixing bowl, add ½ cup (125g) mayonnaise, finely diced ingredients (pickle, green onions, and celery), ½ tsp ground cumin, ½ tbsp (7.5g) dijon mustard, ½ tbsp (7.5ml) unseasoned rice vinegar, and finely chopped hard-boiled eggs. Mix well with a silicone spatula. Drizzle in the finely chopped fresh dill and mix one more time with a silicone spatula.
  • Adjust Seasoning & Chill in Fridge: Taste the salad and season with more kosher salt & fresh ground black pepper to taste. 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.
