How to Make Hard Boiled Eggs on the Stove and Instant Pot

We can’t talk about deviled eggs without talking about how to make the perfect hard-boiled eggs! If you are like me, you’ve tried EVERY method for boiling eggs and always fallen short. That is until I was introduced to the steaming method. Steaming eggs leaves them perfect every time, and incredibly easy to peel.

You can steam eggs on both the stove top and using the Instant Pot. Using the Instant Pot to cook hardboiled eggs is 100%, hands-down, my first choice because the shells peel off so easily! If you haven’t tried cooking eggs in the pressure cooker, be prepared to be amazed!

Piping deviled eggs

As you can see, we piped our filling, which makes them look extra fancy, but have no fear, you don’t need to if you don’t have the tools! You can fill up a plastic bag with the egg yolk filling and snip the end to pipe, or you can use a small spoon to scoop up something filling and use a second spoon to knock the filling in place!

Can you make deviled eggs in advance?

Deviled eggs can be prepared up to two days ahead of time. Wrap the egg white halves well and keep the egg yolk filling sealed in a resealable plastic bag with all the air squeezed out! If desired you can keep the filling separate and pipe into eggs right before serving.
