  • Add one cup of water to your Instant Pot (don't forget to use an inner pot).
  • Place a trivet that came with your Instant Pot inside.
  • Spray inside of silicone egg bites moulds with cooking spray
    Note: You really do need to spray the moulds or the eggs will stick. I tried both and the egg white sticks to the mould without the spray.
  • Carefully crack an egg into each of the egg bites mould cavities without breaking the egg yolk.
    Optionally: you can season your eggs with salt and pepper at this point if you'd like, although I prefer to season mine after they are cooked.
  • Place the egg bites mould on the trivet inside Instant Pot.
  • 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 7 minutes
    (See notes about timings in the post above. The type of silicone egg bites moulds may affect the timing of cooking)
  • It should take about 5-7 minutes to come to pressure. Might be a bit less or more depending on your model and depending on the temperature of the eggs as well as how many eggs are in Instant Pot. Using two egg bites moulds, for example, will take closer to 10 minutes to come to pressure.
  • Once the Instant Pot beeps that the 7 minutes of cooking are done, do a natural pressure release for 3 minutes. This means you let your Instant Pot release pressure naturally without touching it for 3 minutes. 
  • After 3 minutes of natural pressure release, do a Quick Release. This will take about 1 minute.
  • Open the lid and carefully remove the egg bites mould (it'll be hot so use gloves). There will be a few drops of condensation liquid on each egg, that's expected.
  • Run a dull butter knife around each egg to loosen it a little bit. Place a plate over the egg bites moulds and inver the eggs onto it.
  • Eat hot or store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.



Please read my notes about the timings as the thickness of your egg bites moulds may affect how long the eggs cook.
