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!
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.
Below, I'm using the 7" Anchor Hocking storage bowl that's used for baking as well. Perfect size for my 6-quart Instant Pot.
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.
The color of these eggs below are affected by the overhead exhaust hood light. I put my Instant Pot on my stove, however, I do have an induction stove, so there's no chance of accidentally turning the elements on and burning my pot!
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.
Below, the the egg 'cake' is cooling before mixing it with yummy homemade mayonnaise.
There's little difference in the final result of cooking the eggs 'en masse' than cooking and peeling them in the usual way.
The resulting egg salad is a bit lighter in texture ... not quite fluffy, but definitely lighter. A really nice difference. Hubby called it 'delightful' ... a new term for him!
He want to learn how to use the Instant Pot now, and this will be his first recipe!
If you don't have a pressure cooker, here's how to Hard Boil Eggs in several ways, each having distinct advantages. For me, though, using my pressure cooker will be the main way to hard boil eggs from now on. :)
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!
