Easy Classic Deviled Eggs
Deviled eggs are a must-have side dish at any holiday party or get-together. Using the Instant Pot to “hard boil” the eggs perfectly every time makes deviled eggs a breeze. You can even use farm-fresh brown eggs that are notoriously hard to peel. The best part of using the Instant Pot to hard boil eggs is, it doesn’t matter if you are using white eggs from the grocery store or day-old brown eggs from your backyard chickens. You’ll get the same consistent results if your cook 6 eggs or 24 eggs. Eggs come out perfect using the Instant Pot and the 5-5-5 method.

How Long Do You Pressure Cook Eggs For Deviled Eggs?
One of the most popular cooking methods for hard boiling is called the 5-5-5 method. All this really means is you cook the eggs for 5 minutes, let the pressure naturally release for 5 minutes, and then place them in an ice-water bath for 5 minutes before peeling. Depending on how you like your eggs you may change this to a 4-4-4 or 6-6-6, but I have found that the 5-5-5 method works perfectly for me and my farm-fresh eggs.
How To Make Classic Deviled Eggs
First, cut the eggs in half lengthwise and carefully spoon or squeeze the yolks out into a separate bowl. Next, add all of the filling ingredients except paprika and green onions to the bowl with the yolks and use a fork or bean masher to combine all ingredients. Using a spoon, fill each halved egg white with the yolk mixture. If desired sprinkle with paprika and green onions.
