Hard Boiled Eggs (For Deviled Eggs!)

One thing that we can’t go without at our Thanksgiving dinners are my deviled eggs! Everyone loves them and wouldn’t forgive me if I didn’t make them one year. It really used to be a pain to boil so many eggs on the stove and it was a bigger pain to peel all of them. Thank goodness for the Instant Pot! Hard Boiled Eggs are a breeze in the Instant Pot and they peel like magic.
