Who likes potato salad and egg salad as much as I do? I don't know how something so simple can be so good!!! But, it is! One of the nice things about it is the availability of the ingredients. We almost always have one of the main ingredients, eggs, on hand.
Regardless of what recipe you are using hard-boiled eggs for, the Instant Pot Egg Loaf method will definitely save you time and make it a heck of a lot easier. Why you ask? Well, because you will be cooking the eggs out of there shells which means you will NEVER struggle to get the eggshells off of your cooked eggs again! Yes!!!
Tips for making Instant Pot Egg Loaf:
1.Don't forget to spray your insert pan with non-stick cooking spray. If you don't the eggs will be stuck and it will be tricky to get them out of the pan. But, if you do forget, it will be ok. Nobody is going to see the loaf whole so when you cut the egg loaf into smaller pieces any imperfections that may have been caused by the egg loaf sticking to the pan will be disguised.
2.Cook as many eggs as you would like in the egg loaf. This recipe is for 8 eggs and the cook time is 4 minutes. The number of eggs doesn't really matter as much as the thickness of the egg loaf. The thicker the egg loaf, the longer it will take to cook. Now, the difference between 8 and 9 or 10 eggs won't matter. But if you put 24 eggs into a big insert pan, it will take longer because the egg loaf will be substantially thicker. Add a minute or 2 to the pressure cook time. If you would like to cook a lot of eggs, try using the stackable insert pans. You can accomplish the same thing of cooking more eggs by making 2 loaves at the same time. No additional time is needed for 2 pans.
3.The cook time recommended in this recipe is for hard-boiled eggs. You can use the same method to cook soft boiled eggs as well. Reduce pressure cook time to 3 minutes for softer eggs.
