Instant Pot Horseradish Deviled Eggs. Deviled eggs with a kick, ready in about an hour thanks to the Instant Pot 5-5-5 hard-boiled egg method.

I love horseradish, so when a reader asked me about horseradish deviled eggs, my ears perked up. Deviled eggs AND horseradish? Why didn’t anyone ever tell me about those?

And…never mind that my favorite deviled eggs recipe is essentially the Japanese version horseradish deviled eggs. Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain! (Waves hands in a magician’s flourish…not working? Oh, well.)

Deviled eggs are simple with an Instant Pot. I use the 5-5-5 method to hard boil the eggs (5 minutes high pressure, 5 minutes natural release, 5 minutes in an ice bath to cool down). Well…5-5-5(or more) technique, in this case. I let the eggs cool down longer. I want them extra chilled, because cold eggs are firmer and easier to work with.

The only trick to this recipe is finding prepared horseradish. You want the grated horseradish version from your grocery store’s refrigerated deli section, not smooth, shelf stable horseradish sauce found in the condiments aisle. Prepared horseradish has the kick of a mule; horseradish sauce is kinda wimpy.

Other than horseradish, I keep this recipe simple, following my deviled eggs technique. The only tricks are cleanly slicing the eggs (use a sharp, thin knife and clean it in warm water after every egg), and using a zip-top plastic bag as a pastry bag to pipe the mashed filling into the eggs.

Instant Pot Horseradish Deviled Eggs


  • Author: Mike Vrobel
  • Prep Time: 30 minutes
  • Cook Time: 20 minutes
  • Total Time: 50 minutes
  • Yield: A dozen deviled eggs

Description

Instant Pot Horseradish Deviled Eggs. Deviled eggs with a kick, ready in about an hour thanks to the Instant Pot 5-5-5 hard-boiled egg method.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 6 large eggs
  • ⅛ teaspoon fine sea salt (a pinch)
  • 2 tablespoons Prepared Horseradish (or more to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 4 tablespoons mayonnaise

Garnish (optional)

  • Paprika (preferably smoked Spanish paprika)
  • Dill sprigs (stems removed)

Instructions

  1. Hard boil the eggs (Instant Pot 5-5-5 eggs): Pour 1 cup of water into an Instant Pot or other pressure cooker. Put a vegetable steaming basket in the pot, and set 6 large eggs in the basket. Lock the lid and pressure cook on high pressure for 5 minutes (“Manual” or Pressure Cook mode on the Instant Pot.). Once the pressure cooking time is over, let the pressure come down naturally for 5 minutes to finish cooking, then quick release any remaining pressure. Immediately move the eggs to an ice water bath to chill down for at least 5 minutes. (Detailed instructions here: Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs).
  2. Separate the yolks and mash the filling: Peel the hard-boiled eggs. Slice the peeled eggs in half lengthwise, and gently remove the yolks to a bowl. (Set the whites aside on a plate, cut side up.) Break up the yolks with a fork until they are crumbled, then sprinkle with the pinch of salt. Add the prepared horseradish, dijon mustard, and mayonnaise to the bowl. Stir and mash with the fork until completely combined and most of the lumps of egg are gone. At this point, the egg halves and filling can be covered and refrigerated for up to a day.
  3. Pipe the filling into the eggs, garnish, and serve: Scoop the filling into a quart-sized zip-top bag and squeeze the filling down into one corner. Twist from the top of the bag to force all the filling down, then snip off ¼ inch of that corner of the bag. Put the point of the bag into one of the egg holes and squeeze from the top to pipe the filling out until the hole in the egg is heaping and full. Repeat until all the egg halves are filled. (Any leftover filling is a chef’s treat.) Sprinkle the eggs with paprika, and top each with a piece of dill frond. Serve and enjoy!

Notes

Too much kick? Cut the horseradish back to 1 tablespoon. Not enough kick? Keep adding horseradish to taste (I go until my nose hairs stand up straight).

This recipe doubles easily – I hard boil a dozen eggs almost every time. But, instead of doubling, I make two different recipes, to add some deviled egg variety.

Tools

6 quart or larger pressure cooker (I love my Instant Pot 6-Quart Pressure Cooker)
