This is an outstanding recipe that is ready in just four minutes, and without any mess. The Instant Pot egg bake combines bacon, eggs, hash browns, and of course, the cheese. It is the ultimate and favorite mixture of all generations and can be served hot or cold.
How to prevent the egg bake from burning?
I got some questions about it, and the key is in adjusting the time as well as pouring the eggs into the cold Instant Pot. Yes, once you saute the hash browns, cool the Instant Pot and add eggs and cheese mixture. Cook for 4 minutes at high pressure and that is it.
What can I use instead of bacon?
Bacon is not a mandatory ingredient for this Instant Pot cheesy baked eggs recipe.
You can use chopped ham or go with prosciutto. You can even leave meat products completely and just make it with some extra cheese.
Which cheese to use?
Go with cheddar, Gouda, or Edam. you can also sprinkle some soft brie on top once the cooking is done. The cheese will melt and give an amazing flavor.
