My recipe  of the day is for making hard-cooked eggs in the instant pot as well as making the classic version of deviled eggs.

The process for cooking eggs in the instant pot is quite easy. Using the rack you can stack the eggs pyramid style. I’m not sure that once you include the heat up time and the time to release the steam it’s any faster,  but it does  produce nicely cooked eggs and mine were easy to peel.

If you don’t  have an Instant Pot, what I do is take eggs that I bought 5-7 days earlier,  place them in a cold water start with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, boil ten minutes, then remove from heat, immediately pour off the hot water and run cold  tap water over them to  cool down. It’s pretty  effective.

The deviled eggs are a “classic” plain version.  I cut back on the mayo and  add some  sour cream, which makes them very creamy  tasting. I add a little vinegar to brighten the flavor. Some people will add pickle juice. I prefer not to but to each their own.

I have listed a few  other deviled egg recipes I like to make. Bacon and cheddar are fantastic but I do love  my bacon.
