Korean Sauna Eggs

These Korean Sauna Eggs are a very popular Korean snack and are fun and easy to make in an instapot!

I (Jeremy) was reading one of my favorite tech blogs one day when I ran across a linked article describing these Korean Sauna Eggs.

Why is that interesting you might be asking…

Well, I lived in South Korea for over two years. In fact, one of my daughters was born in Seoul.

The name having peaked my interest, I clicked on the link and learned just how easy it is to make these in an Instant Pot.

Having been on a deviled egg kick the last few weeks, I decided to give these a try to see if they would provide a different take on one of my favorite ways to eat eggs.

These Korean Sauna Eggs make an interesting base for a deviled egg, that I would describe as fluffy and nutty.

The cooking process turns the egg white a tan color, so plating these with traditional deviled eggs will add some additional visual appeal.

Our recipe calls for a 90 minute cook time, but you can play with the time a few minutes either way to see what different flavors you can come up with.

I hope you enjoy these Korean Sauna Eggs as much as I did.
