My husband absolutely loves poached eggs. I’ve started making them in the Instant Pot and they are super easy, quick to make and they look so perfect every time.
- Prep time: 3 minutes
- Cook time: 3 minutes
- Serves: 4
- 4 Extra Large or Large Eggs, cold from the fridge
- Avocado Oil or Olive Oil
- 4 Silicone Egg Poachers
- 1) Use your fingers or a brush to coat the entire inside of each mold with a little oil. Crack 1 egg into each silicone cup and place them onto the trivet. Pour exactly 1 Cup of water into your Instant Pot, lower the trivet into the pot and seal the lid.
EXTRA LARGE EGGS: Choose High Pressure / Manual and set for 3 minutes. As soon as the timer is up, immediate switch the knob to venting, when the pin drops, open the lid and carefully lift out the trivet.
LARGE EGGS: Choose High Pressure / Manual and set for 2 minutes. When timer is up, wait 30 seconds and switch the knob to venting, when the pin drops, open the lid and carefully lift out the trivet. (use a timer on your phone so they don’t overcook)
Venting at the correct time is very important, even a 30 second delay will start to overcook the eggs. Use a large spoon to help remove the eggs from the mold. Place on top of a piece of toast, sprinkle on some salt & pepper and add a dab of butter on top. Enjoy!
This recipe is designed for the silicone egg poachers, if you use something else like ramekins – you’ll need to experiment with cooking times since other materials will conduct heat differently. Living in higher elevation will also affect your cooking times. Don’t use a steamer basket to hold the poachers, it will change the cooking time.
