Can eggs touch in an Instant Pot?
When cooking your eggs in the Instant Pot, it is best for them to be separated from each other. Placing them on the trivet helps to allow them to be spread out and not touch each other. It is best not to layer them, but have them in one flat later.

You need to add your trivet to the instant pot, followed by water and place the eggs on top.

Can deviled eggs be made ahead of time?
Deviled eggs can be made ahead of time. The best way to ensure they stay fresh to to make the filling, keep it separate from the empty egg halves and then bring them together on the day you wish to serve them. I recommend 1 day in advance for fresh, healthy tasting deviled eggs!
Do you have to cover deviled eggs in the fridge?
Once you have brought your eggs together, keep them covered in the fridge until you are ready to serve them. This will keep them fresher and softer for longer.
The filling for the eggs tastes smooth and creamy, yet, we don’t use the traditional mayonnaise you will find in some recipes! Greek yoghurt is a low fat alternative with a very similar texture. These low carb deviled eggs without mayo are healthy and full of flavour!
To decorate your eggs, use chopped chives and sriracha sauce! Or you can opt for the traditional paprika, it is not my favourite though as I find these eggs taste better with a dash of hot sauce in a modern way!
Once your eggs are deviled, ready and garnished, pop them out for the guests and watch them fly off the plate!
