Other people seem to have issues with undercooking hard boiled eggs.

How to make Soft Boiled Eggs in an Instant Pot:

Easy Smoked Salmon Dip Recipe Notes:

• The cream cheese, capers, lemon juice, and dried dill are optional ingredients. You can use them, leave off one of them, and adjust to taste. The lemon juice increases acidity so I would not recommend much more lemon juice (but it is up to you!). If you would like to use fresh dill instead of dry you can just watch the blending.

• If adding the cream cheese, you can use this smoked salmon dip as a sandwich spread!
