You can make this entire recipe in the Instant Pot! After coving the eggs in the sausage, heat some oil in the Instant Pot over Saute. Brown all sides of the eggs, around 6 minutes total. Remove and place one cup of water into the inner pot with a rack. Place the eggs inside and pressure cook on high for 8 minutes. Once time is done use quick release to release the remaining pressure.
