This method takes the mystery out of making poached eggs AND makes it a hands off task.  Perfect Poached Eggs anytime!



  1. Add 1 cup of water to the pressure cooker pot and place trivet inside.  
  2. Spray silicone tray with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. Crack desired number of eggs into the holes of the silicone tray.  Place tray on top of the trivet.
  4. Secure the lid and turn pressure release knob to a sealed position.  Cook at high pressure for 6 – 8 minutes (see notes regarding cooking time).
  5. When cooking is complete, use a quick release.  
  6. Check the eggs.  The egg white should be completely cooked and the yellow center should be slightly jiggly.  
  7. Using a soft edge knife or spoon, carefully scrape around the egg to make sure it’s not adhering to the edges, then gently scoop it from the tray.  
  8. Serve immediately with a sprinkle of salt and pepper.  
  9. Serve with avocado toast, english muffins, tamales, salads, hashbrowns, etc
