It's not that soft boiled eggs are hard. They're not. It's mostly that Instant Pot soft boiled eggs are so easy. I mean, raise your hand if you need something to be easy this week? I do. Can one thing just be easy. Ever.
This is easy, and these soft boiled eggs take one minute. One minute and there are soft boiled eggs at the ready. It's almost as easy as a Star Trek replicator...do you remember? When they would ask for food and it would just appear. I used to try to wish that into existence as a kid. I just really wanted it to spit out McDonalds cheeseburgers. You know you did too, k.
How To Make Instant Pot Soft Boiled Eggs
You will start by adding a cup of water to the bottom of the Instant Pot. Fold up the little grate that came with it, and place the eggs on top. Secure the lid and push the toggle on top toward "sealing". Set the Instant Pot controls by pushing Manual, and the time for one minute. ONE MINUTE. Who's excited about that!?!
Start your ice bath while you wait for that minute.
Once the timer goes off, release the pressure. Push the toggle on top of the lid toward "venting". I do this with a long handled spoon so that I don't get my hands near the steam.
Place the eggs into the ice bath until they are cooled. Once you remove them, they should be really easy to peel.
I should tell you that 3 minutes makes hard boiled eggs. Two minutes makes soft hardboiled eggs. One minute plus one minute before pressure release makes soft boiled with cooked edges. Did I tell you I made two dozen eggs on Sunday morning trying to figure this out? The good news is that it took 10 minutes tops, we ate a lot of eggs that day.
These Instant Pot soft boiled eggs go great with so many things. I would eat them with low carb toast, Fall magic low carb pumpkin granola, or the ultimate fall pumpkin muffins, or instead of our spicy low carb breakfast casserole for a lighter option.Print
