How do I prepare my hard boiled eggs?

I prefer to use my instant pot to make my hard boiled eggs and I follow the 5-5-5 Method. 

To Make In the Instant Pot:

Place your egg trivet in your instant pot insert with 1 cup of water.  Add eggs to trivet and place lid on top.  Set to 5 minutes on manual pressure. Once the instant pot beeps allow it to natural pressure release for 5 minutes. Release remaining pressure and place eggs in an ice water bath for 5 minutes before peeling. Easy Peasy!

To Make On The Stovetop:

Place eggs in a large saucepan. Cover eggs with water and fill until it covers the eggs about 1 inch.  Cover with a lid and bring water to a boil over high heat; once boiling, set the timer for 6 – 7 minutes over medium-high heat. Remove from water and place in an ice water bath for 5 minutes before peeling.
