Instant Pot Deviled Eggs {Easter Egg Chicks}

 
Can I let you in on a little secret? I’m a sucker for food that I can turn into something adorable. Just look at myAir Fryer Cinnamon Roll Bunnies. I’m not sure if I want to eat them or display them on my mantle! (**Edit: My kids devoured them). I enjoy creating a delicious food option for my family and also making it insanely cute! 
 
I also love the versatility of our Instant Pot. Not many people think about using it to hard boil eggs, but seriously, it’s so easy. Have you noticed the “egg” button on your Instant Pot? Keep reading to find out what this option does.

How many eggs can you hard boil in the Instant Pot?

Using your steam rack, you should be able to cook 6 eggs at once for this recipe. Add the eggs, add a cup of water, and let the Instant Pot do the rest. I honestly have fixed well over 6 before though!

Are Instant Pot eggs easy to peel?

What is easier than easy? These eggs are incredibly easy to peel! I think it might have something do with being pressure cooked. It’s like the shell almost slides right off. Occasionally, I’ll run across a few stubborn eggs that don’t want to let go of their shell. I just put them in a bowl of ice water for a few minutes and voila! There’s always more than one way to skin a cat, er, peel an egg. 

This post shows you two recipes with eggs. One on how to make the deviled eggs using the Instant Pot and the other on how to turn them into awesome Easter Egg Chicks.

Ingredients to make Instant Pot Devilled Eggs Chicks

Instructions to decorate you Easter Egg Chicks

1) Cut a small slice from the bottom of each egg to flatten, so that the egg will stand.

2) From the other end, cut off about 1/3 about 1/3 Cut the eggs lengthwise and scoop out the yolks. Reserve the yolks in a bowl and keep the white aside.

 

3) Cut off about 1/3 from the top of the egg. You could also do a zigzag pattern for a more ‘cracked’ look.

4) Carefully scoop out the egg yolks and reserve it in a bowl.

5) Mash the yolk with a fork. Add the mayonnaise, mustard, finely minced gherkin, pickling juice, salt and lots of freshly cracked black pepper and mix well. Make sure there are no lumps. NOTE: You can also use unsweetened sweet pickle relish vs the gherkin if you want. I do that in my egg salad recipe. 

6) Fill a piping bag with the yolk mixture. You can use a Ziploc baggie too.

7) Poke through the olives with a plastic straw to make the ‘eyes’.

8) Thinly slice a ring of carrot and cut each ring into sixths.

9) Snip the end of the piping bag and fill the hollowed egg base. Pile on high. Place top back on the filled base.

10) Place 2 olive rounds for eyes and a carrot wedge for the beak.

11) Place the chicks on the serving platter and garnish with curly parsley or dill leaves or even shredded lettuce to give it a ‘farm’ look.

12) Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.
