Can I use Instant Pot mini to make this recipe?

Sure! 3-quarts is enough and you can use any small pressure cooker for this recipe. No need to take out the big pots…

Do I need to use the pressure cooking function?

No. This pressure cooker scrambled eggs recipe is very simple, and made using the Saute option only. So no need to wait the Instant Pot to create pressure.

How to prevent eggs from sticking to the pressure cooker?

After you press “saute”, wait for the Instant Pot to displays “Hot” on the screen.

That way you will make sure the butter melts \ the oil is ready.

If you add the eggs too soon, you will need to scratch eggs from the bottom of the pot, and it’s not fun at all.

  1. Great recipe! I like that you didn’t use the pressure cooker option like many other websites did.
    For cooking eggs the saute button is enough.

  2. Hi,
    New to this site today. I’m a bit confused about how using the I.P. is any different than using a simple frying pan which is quite a lot less to clean. Thanks for any help with this. : )

    1. I was wondering that myself. . . ? My non-stick frying pan works just as well and isn’t as awkward to clean afterward. . . .

  3. As I was saying breakfast for my girls this morning I discovered that my propane had run out…
    Then I thought, certainly between the instant pot and the air fryer I can work something out.
    Thanks for paying this recipe. I found it very useful this morning.

  4. Some people live in places with no cooktops. Other people want to camp or live in an RV and don’t want to use propane. The instant pot is very useful in cooking in these situations.

      1. Frying anything on a cooktop causes splatter. Which means cleaning the stove 3 times a day. No thanks. If I can use the IP to fry/cook instead of the stove I will.

  5. I am so glad that I found this, I am getting ready to go over the road in a simi truck with my husband and am going to just have a 3 qt instant pot and a roadpro lunch box oven to cook in so this is a great way to make eggs and bacon in the lunchbox.

  6. As a solider who hasn’t been able to eat much of any good brekfests in months thank you so much for letting me know this can be done! Absolute life saver.
