How to Make This Recipe
You're going to love how simple this Instant Pot egg salad is. Without having to peel all the eggs, this recipe is truly a breeze!
Step 1: First, spray a pan that fits into the Instant Pot with nonstick spray. Next, crack the eggs into the pan.
Step 2: Add some water into the Instant Pot and place the pan onto the trivet insert and lower it into the bottom. Close the lid and pressure cook for six minutes.
Step 3: Once the eggs have cooked, quickly or naturally release the steam from the Instant Pot. Remove the eggs from the Instant Pot and drain the water.
Step 4: Next, chop the egg "loaf" and place the chopped eggs back into the Instant Pot with diced celery, onion, mayonnaise, mustard, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt.
Mix everything up well and that's it! Garnish with a sprinkle of paprika and sliced chives if desired.
If you want this no peel Instant Pot egg salad to be a little less smelly, then add one teaspoon of vinegar to the salad.
Your egg salad may taste bland because there may not be enough seasinings in it. Feel free to adjust the seasoning to your preferences!
Although I haven't tested this ingredient, I hear hummus is a great substitution for egg salad! Mashed avocado or Greek yogurt are also great ideas.
Store the egg salad in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to four days.
- Make this ahead of time by preparing a batch and storing in the refrigerator until ready to enjoy.
- Enjoy this Instant Pot egg salad with a bed of greens, in a wrap, with crackers, or on a sandwich!

- 8 eggs
- ½ cup diced celery (64g)
- ½ cup diced onion (64g)
- ⅓ cup mayo (64g)
- 1 tablespoon mustard (14.3g)
- 1 teaspoon onion powder (4.2g)
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder (4.2g)
- ¼ teaspoon salt (1.4g)
Spray a pan that fits into your Instant Pot (I used a 6” square pan) with non-stick spray and crack your eggs into it. (You can use any pan as long as it fits into your Instant pot!)
Add ~1 cup of water into your Instant Pot, place pan of eggs onto the trivet insert and lower into the bottom of the pot. Add the lid and pressure cook for 6 minutes. (You do not need to cover the eggs!)
Once cooked, you can release the pressure from your Instant Pot (or you can just let it naturally release), remove your eggs and drain the water from the pot.
Roughly chop your egg “loaf” and place chopped eggs back into the Instant Pot with remaining ingredients (right now everything will be in the Instant Pot pot just to mix! Why dirty another dish?!)
Mix everything up well and that’s it! Garnish with a sprinkle of paprika and thin cut chives if desired
Enjoy with crackers, in a sandwich over a bed of greens or in a wrap!
