Instant Pot Egg Salad

Welcome to my Instant Pot egg mayonnaise sandwiches. Note, I said egg mayonnaise and you’re probably wondering why you are on an instant pot egg salad recipe and I am saying that?

This is because instant pot egg salad is American for the British favourite egg mayonnaise.

This is also an update, after we originally shared our instant pot egg salad sandwiches with you 3 years ago, we have included 3 versions of cooking eggs in the instant pot to make it even easier for you.

Using the Instant Pot egg salad sandwiches that you dream of. Lovely and warm, full of flavour and perfect use of any leftover eggs you have in the house.

When I was 18 years old I spent about 6 weeks working at a hospital in the kitchens. The job was nothing special, but it was good fun and the people were lovely to work for.

The hubby worked as the second chef in the kitchen, so it was weird him being my boss when we had only just moved in together.

I was part of the cafeteria staff that would be serving people that was eating at the hospital. I would be serving up what had been cooked in the kitchen for the lunch rush then there would be plenty of other jobs too.

One of them would be preparing the cold food that was served. This would include the fruit salads and the sandwiches.

I hated doing the sandwiches because they looked awful. Lots and lots of processed bread, fillings that looked like sick and I could go on and on.

What it did was put me off these sandwiches and I realised that a good sandwich should involve effort and it goes without saying that it should be served hot.

Bad memories of the egg mayonnaise that I made are well in the past now (20 years into the past) but I still love the trusted egg mayonnaise sandwiches, and this is how I do them now.

So, without further introductions this is my Instant Pot Egg Salad.

Why Make Egg Salad In The Instant Pot?

The instant pot is ideal for making instant pot egg salad. This is because you don’t have to stress over boiling eggs on the hob and wondering if the eggs are done or not.

You don’t have to do an ice bath; you don’t have to spend ages peeling eggs and it’s a much quicker process.

You can load your eggs into the instant pot and then the instant pot beeps when your eggs are ready to be sliced and made into a delicious instant pot egg salad.

Instant Pot Egg Salad Ingredients & Gadgets

There are 7 main ingredients that go into instant pot egg salad:

  • Eggs
  • Spring Onion
  • Cheese
  • Celery
  • Carrot
  • Mayonnaise
  • Seasoning

Though you might have your own favourite add ins for an egg salad. These are just my go to ingredients and yours might be different.

I like to start my instant pot egg salad off with eggs, salt and pepper and parsley. Then I will add in spring onion, celery, carrot and I can’t have an egg salad without cheese!

Then of course if you are making egg salad sandwiches, you can add in your favourite bread. I like to make my own bread maker bread or if you follow Keto you can load our instant pot egg salad mix onto cucumbers as a low carb alternative.

Of course, if you do follow a healthy diet, I recommend this paleo mayonnaise.

The Instant Pot we recommend you use is the 8 quart model. Just because you can cook more eggs at once, hence make a lot more delicious instant pot egg salad.
