How To Color Easter Eggs In the Instant Pot

The traditional method of dying Easter eggs taken to a new level – coloring Easter eggs while they cook!


  • Eggs not hard-boiled
  • Food Coloring
  • Apple Cider Vinegar


  • In the liner of your Instant Pot add the trivet and 1 cup of water.
  • In each ramekin add 3 tablespoons of vinegar and 10 drops of food coloring. Stir.
  • Place an egg in each ramekin and add enough water to cover the egg.
  • Place filled ramekins in the Instant Pot. It is okay to stack them as long as the lid is able to be locked.
  • Pressure cook/Manual on HIGH pressure for 5 minutes.
  • Once the cooking time expires, allow for Natural Pressure Release for 5 minutes and fill a large bowl full of ice water. Release any remaining pressure.
  • Immediately transfer eggs to an ice bath to stop the cooking process.
  • After 5 minutes in the ice bath remove the eggs with tongs and allow to dry.


*If you want a deeper color, add the eggs to a mason jar with half ice water and half of the dyed water that the egg was cooked in.
