Instructions

Egg Bites Moulds Poached Eggs Instructions

  • Spray the egg bites moulds with cooking spray really well.
  • Add an egg into each of the moulds without breaking a yolk.
  • Place a trivet inside Instant Pot. I use 6 qt model, timings for 8 qt or 3 qt models might be different.
  • Add 1 cup water to Instant Pot.
  • Place the egg bites mould with the eggs on the trivet. Do not cover with foil.
  • Close the lid of your Instant Pot and turn the valve to Sealing.
  • Press Manual or Pressure Cooker button (depending on your model) and use the arrows to select 4 minutes.
  • It should take about 5-7 minutes to come to pressure. Might be a bit less depending on your model.
  • Once the Instant Pot beeps that the 4 minutes of cooking are done, do a natural pressure release for 2 minutes! It means that you just leave your Instant Pot without touching it for 2 minutes, it will count up.
  • Once 2 minutes of natural pressure release are done, do a quick release. This will take another minute or so.
  • Carefully remove the egg bites mould. There will be a few drops of condensation liquid on each egg. 
  • Invert the eggs onto a plate and the condensation will just pour out also.

Glass Bowls Poached Eggs Instructions

  • Spray the egg bites moulds with cooking spray really well.
  • Add an egg into each of the glass bowls without breaking a yolk.
  • Place a trivet inside Instant Pot. I use 6 qt model, timings for 8 qt or 3 qt models might be different.
  • Add 1 cup water to Instant Pot.
  • Place the glass bowls with the eggs on the trivet. Do not cover with foil.
  • Close the lid of your Instant Pot and turn the valve to Sealing.

  • It should take about 5-7 minutes to come to pressure. Might be a bit less depending on your model.
  • Once the Instant Pot beeps that the 2 minutes of cooking are done, do a quick release. This will take about 2 minutes.
  • Carefully remove the glass bowls. There will be a few drops of condensation liquid on each egg. 
  • Invert the eggs onto a plate and the condensation will just pour out also.
