I just wanted to share a simple recipe to make Instant Pot hard-boiled eggs that are incredibly easy to peel. If you have an Instant Pot (which I highly recommend for many reasons) you should really consider hard-boiling your eggs with it.
It makes them quickly, and very consistently, and the peeling is extremely easy.
Not only does my toddler love boiled eggs, but they are an amazing source of protein and essential nutrients like choline which is great for brain development. (1)
You can throw hard boiled eggs into salads, sandwiches, eat them alone, or add some hot sauce for a kick. Try using leftovers to make deviled eggs or egg salad. The possibilities are endless!
Now for why you’re really here:

7. Transfer the eggs to an ice bath for a few minutes to stop the cooking process so they don’t become overdone.
