Your colored eggs are adorable. You have given me some decorating inspiration! I used a standard Calphalon muffin tin , which even though it was non stick, I still sprayed generously with cooking spray. This, you might want to note, turned out to be a really good idea. Next I cracked an egg and dropped it into the first cup. There is no special magic going on here, just be careful not to be too rough if you like the egg yolk whole, then just crack one in each cup. I decided to break the yolk in half of the eggs and swirl them around just a bit, and leave the other half in tact. That way I could see if one way cooked better than the other or any other benefits.
Then I just put them in the oven, if you wanted to add salt and pepper, you could add it right on top before you put them in to cook. I baked them for 15 minutes, checked them, decided they still looked like they could be a tad more set, two minutes later, checked again, and they looked perfect.
I had to laugh when I realized they cooked for 17 minutes.

I let them cool a minute and then ran a knife around the edges and pulled them out pretty easily. I do think it might have been a nightmare, had I not sprayed before hand. I found the ones that had looked extra puffy in the oven had really just gotten an air bubble underneath so they were all roughly the same size. They looked good, but only the taste test would really tell the result of this pin test. I decided to try one of each, the whole yolk and the broken yolk.
I bit into the whole yolk egg and again, to my surprise, it was perfect! It was just delicious! I tried the other egg with the slightly mixed yolk and it was just as good! I think deciding whether you will break the yolk is personal preference.
I liked it better because instead of getting a large bite of yolk at some point, you get a little bit in each bite, but both ways were a huge success. I liked them.
My husband liked them. My kids liked them. They were quick. Overall, I thought that it was a success cooking on the vegetable steamer, and have made them that way several times since I tried it the first time.
When I need more, I tend to use the method above to cool down the pot and cook another batch. On one batch of eggs I made, I missed the timer going off and it ended up on Natural Release for about an extra minutes.
These eggs came out pretty much exactly the same, easy to peel, done all the way through, BUT there was a slightly gray ring around the yolk indicating that they were probably a little over done. They still tasted about the same though so we ate them! I think you could easily do a hard boiled egg with a natural release but you would need to reduce the cook time from 10 minutes.
For me, it seems easier to just keep track of one time, so I will be sticking with my primary method. I will be using my Instant Pot from now on to make my hard boiled eggs.
