How to boil Easter eggs the easy way! You’ll have perfect hard-boiled eggs ready to decorate in no time.
But let’s not forget one of the most classic Easter activities of all time: decorating Easter eggs!
What you need to boil Easter eggs- Stovetop
- large sauce pan
Gently place the eggs in a large sauce pan and cover with water. Sprinkle a little salt. Bring to a rolling boil over medium heat (a rolling boil continues to bubble even when stirring).
Remove the pan from the heat and let the eggs sit for 10-15 minutes.
Finally, submerge the eggs in an ice bath to stop the eggs from cooking more.
How to boil eggs in Instant Pot
If you have an Instant Pot, I highly recommend using this method. Really, making hard-boiled eggs in an Intant Pot is practically effortless and results in perfect hard-boiled eggs every time.
- Place 1 cup cold water in the inner pot.
- Place the metal rack that came with your IP on the bottom of the pot. Gently place eggs on top of this rack.
- Put the lid on and turn to sealing position.
- Turn the pressure to high and manually set the timer for 5 minutes. (Press manual button and adjust to 5 minutes).
- After cook time has ended, let the IP naturally release for 5 minutes. Set a timer so you don’t forget. After 5 minutes, move the knob to release to allow the rest of the pressure to release.
- Carefully removed the hot eggs and place in an ice bath (a bowl full of water and ice cubes) and let sit for 5 minutes.
- Remove from ice bath and place back in the egg carton. Decorate or keep in the fridge until you are ready to dye Easter eggs.
Decorating Easter Eggs
Once the Easter eggs have cooled, you can start decorating! If you aren’t ready to color them yet, simply place them back in the egg carton and store in the refrigerator until you are ready to decorate.
