Instant Pot Ranch Deviled Eggs Recipe

I finally broke down and bought myself an Instant Pot, and I am showing you how you can make my famous ranch deviled eggs with it. Ranch devlied eggs may sound a bit weird at first, but I promise you won’t be able to stop popping them in your mouth.

I did some research on this instant pot thing and it turns out it was exactly what I needed. Working full time, sports practices and daily craziness have me bringing home fast food and frozen dinners more often than I would like to admit. Ramen nights became a ‘thing’ at our house. While I don’t think there is anything wrong with a few easy dinners now and then, it has gotten out of hand.

Why the Instant Pot?

Since I bought the Instant Pot last month, I started meal prepping one day a week, freezing the meals and then taking them straight from the freezer to Instant Pot for homemade meals. The meals typically take less than an hour to cook from frozen to finished.

While the meals are cooking, I am giving the kids baths, helping with homework, or cleaning up the house. I have even used the delayed start so I can take the boys to practice and return home to a finished, hot, and waiting-for-me dinner. This small appliance has quickly become my go-to way to make dinner.

Most recently I learned a new feature – I made hard boiled eggs with the egg function.

Don’t worry, if you don’t have an instant pot you can easily boil your eggs the old fashioned way.

Hard Boiled Eggs in the Instant Pot

  • Put on Egg Setting for 5 minutes
  • Put tray in Instant Pot and add 1 cup of water to the pot
  • Set eggs on tray and close the lid

It takes about five minutes for the Instant Pot to build up pressure, then it cooks for five minutes. Let the Instant Pot naturally release pressure for about five minutes and then remove the eggs immediately to a bowl with ice and water to stop the cooking.

Guys I am known for making boiled eggs that look like they went through a zombie apocalypse. The shells never want to come off and there are huge bits of the egg white missing. This time they were flawless. My husband was amazed since he is usually making fun of my hard boiled egg skills. I owe it all to my beautiful little Instant Pot.

Hard Boiled Eggs without an Instant Pot

No Instant Pot? No problem.

I fill a large pot with water and bring it to a rapid boil. Then I slowly lower the eggs down into the boiling water and let boil for 10 minutes. Once the 10 minutes is up I remove them to a boil of ice and water which stops the cooking.

How to Perfectly Fill Deviled Eggs

I’m letting you in on my secret to perfectly filled eggs. Piping bags are the way to go if your eggs are for a holiday or special occasion! They come out looking perfect. I topped mine with chives and bacon.

My family loves it when I make ranch deviled eggs, and all of us devour them. When I made this batch they didn’t last more than an hour… if that.

I present to you the piece of resistance. These pictures are going to be all the convincing you need that your deviled egg recipe needs an upgrade. I want to pop a dozen more by looking at these pictures alone!

My mini wanted a cheers before we ate our eggs. Cheers to yummy eggs and little munchkins that are growing way too fast.

Ranch Deviled Eggs Recipe

Yield: 24


  • 12 eggs, hard boiled
  • 3 tsp Hidden Valley Ranch dressing powder
  • 1/4 cup finely diced onion
  • 3-4 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons yellow mustard
  • diced chives, optional
  • bacon bits, optional


  1. Peel shells and cut hard boiled eggs in half. Place all of the yolks into a medium bowl.
  2. Add the ranch dressing powder, onion, mayo and mustard to the egg yolks and use a mixer to beat the ingredients until most of the lumps are gone.
  3. Fill the egg whites with the filling and top with chives and bacon.


  • I used a frosting piping bag to pipe the egg yolk mixture back into the eggs. I don’t do this if we are eating them as a family, but if they are for an event or gathering it looks so perfect.
  • I've received some feedback that the yolk mixture is too salty for some. If you are sensitive to salt start with 1-2 tsp of ranch seasoning and add more as needed.

Everyone loved them . They are a hit ! Will be making more for Christmas. Thank you ! PS. Use less Ranch 1-2 TBS

Ohhh ... much too salty for our family! Add the Rand to taste, not the entire packet like I did. Eggs looked lovely, though!

Can you use ranch dressing instead of ranch mix


Friday 12th of January 2018

I wouldn't. The ranch dressing packet is a blend of spices. Using ranch dressing would not be as concentrated and would make the yolk mixture too thin.

Good, but a little to salty even without the bacon bits.
