5-5-5 Ninja Foodi or Instant Pot Football Deviled Eggs
My method for using the Ninja Foodi is the 5-5-5 method for cooking hard boiled eggs. They come out fully cooked, with a pretty cooked yolk in the center. Of course this same method works for your Instant Pot.
The Ninja Foodi is an Air Fryer and Instant Pot in one essentially. So it is capable of both air frying and crisping up food, and cooking food fast and efficiently like the electric pressure cooker we all call the Instant Pot.
