Oma's easy egg salad recipe made using a pressure cooker is amazing. It's a, "Why didn't I think of that before!" kind of method that you'll LOVE! Guaranteed! Then add your homemade mayonnaise. Perfection! Serve this on some really good whole grain bread or some freshly baked German Brötchen.
Use this quick and easy pressure cooker method to cook your eggs. You won't have to fuss peeling the eggs AND you won't have those awful green rings around the yolks. Perfection, every time! Best of all, hubby says this tastes, "delightful" ... a term I haven't heard him use before when describing food!
The last time I had a pressure cooker was about 35 years ago. You know, the type that makes a mess on the ceiling!
My Facebook fans let me know that the modern ones are very, very safe and so much easier to use than the old ones.
This is the one that they recommended the most: the Instant Pot Duo. On Amazon, it has over 18,000 reviews at 4.7 out of 5 stars!
How could I buy anything else? Now, it's my new toy, I mean, tool, that I'm having so much fun with converting my German recipes.
This Instant Pot Duo combines 7 kitchen appliances in 1: Pressure Cooker, Slow Cooker, Rice Cooker, Steamer, Sauté, Yogurt Marker and Warmer. I can't believe I lived most of my life without it!
Choose a baking dish that is oven-safe. It needs to fit into your Instant Pot leaving a bit of room around the sides to allow the steam to rise from the water below.
Choose how many eggs you want to make. The pressure cooking time will remain the same. I normally make 2 eggs per person and since I want leftovers, will make upwards to 12 eggs at a time. Adjust the mayonnaise accordingly.
The handles on the trivet will help you remove the finished hot dish. Or, if you have those awesome silicone straps, you can use that as well.
Cook the egg 'cake' and then proceed with whichever recipe has called for hard-boiled eggs. This is also perfect for use in my easy German potato salad.
Note: This method for using a pressure cooker to cook the eggs has been all over the internet the past couple of days. Unfortunately, I couldn't find the 'first' poster ... if that's you, please let me know and I'll credit you with this amazing find!
