If you haven't tried it yet, the 5-5-5 Instant Pot method is about to change your life!

This easy-peasy recipe makes a small batch of deviled eggs that are perfect for sharing or snacking on.

I am thrilled with the instant pot hard boiled egg routine, HOWEVER, the 5-5-5 routine produces over cooked eggs. I use jumbo eggs and reduced time to 4-4-5 and they were almost perfect. Will try 4-3-5 next time.
