To make these Keto Instant Pot Egg Stuffed Peppers, start by cutting all of the bell peppers in half, lengthwise. Remove the stems, seeds, and white inner ribs from the peppers. Rinse each of the pepper halves and dry them with a paper towel.
Crack 1 egg into each pepper half. The pepper holds the egg perfectly. Season the egg with salt and pepper.
Place a rack into the Instant Pot, and pour water into the bottom of the pot.
Arrange the pepper halves on the rack in the Instant Pot.
Loosely cover the peppers with a piece of aluminum foil.
Shut the lid and pressure cook on low for 4 minutes. Keep in mind that it usually takes 10-15 minutes for the pressure to build in the Instant Pot. When the 4 minutes are up, manually release the pressure. Use tongs to remove the peppers from the Instant Pot.
While the peppers are still warm, sprinkle them liberally with cheese. The heat will cause the cheese to melt.
