Instructions
  1. Place the Instant Pot steam rack in the Instant Pot inner pot and add 1 cup of water. Place the eggs on top of steam rack (you can also use a steamer basket instead of the steam pot). Secure the lid, ensuring the valve is turned to the Sealing position. Press the Pressure Cook button and set the time to 7 minutes.
  2. When cooking is complete, turn the valve to the Venting position to release the pressure. Remove the lid and remove the eggs with a pair of tongs. Place the eggs in a bowl and fill it with cool water until the eggs are cool enough to handle. Peel the eggs under running water, pat them dry, and then slice the eggs in half lengthwise.
  3. Remove the egg yolks from the whites and place them in a medium bowl, reserving the whites. Add the mayonnaise, mustard, and the salt and pepper to the yolks and mix well. Spoon the egg-yolk mixture back into the egg white halves and sprinkle the tops with smoked paprika and chopped chives. Serve the eggs cold or at room temperature.
Recipe Notes

Remove the eggs from the Instant Pot as soon as the pressure has been released. Leaving them in any longer can result in overcooked eggs.

    I needed to do 8 minutes with the egg setting on an Ultra 60 model. They came out perfect and peeled magnificently! Very tasty!

    7 minutes wasnt enough, egg whites were really soft and when I cut into them the yolks weren’t fully done. Maybe 7 minutes and leave it to naturally release steam, or 2 more minutes and quick release steam.

    I will disregard this recipe and go with another one I found. I did a dozen eggs, 1 cup of water for 5 minutes, then let them sit for an additional 5. They were perfect.

    I have a duo plus instant pot and the recipe worked perfect for me. Not sure if it matters if you use a different device.
