We even have our own flock so we never run out of them but maybe we have different eggs north of the Mason Dixon? lol

I will also say, the recipe for the filling sounds delicious and I will probably give it a go with just regular hard boiled eggs. Did I mention I love eggs? Lol
If you had a problem with eggs being over boiled in an instant pot there must have been something else wrong besides over boiling. This method is very common and I have used it many times without a problem.
We have our own egg production also and I love eggs fixed in almost every way. I have never experienced any odor problems with this method.

I use the instant pot almost daily, and fix many exotic types of dishes and I have no odor problems with my gaskets. After washing up my IP after a spicy dish I always pour in a half cup of white vinegar, set the pot for two minutes and let it natural release. I then rinse the pot and lid and store the pot with the lid upside down on top of the IP. I have two 6 quart and an 8 quart IP and no odor problems.
