    I've had the best luck peeling "hard boiled" eggs by steaming them. I use a circular wooden steamer that will hold 1 doz and steam them for 12-13 minutes, then it's straight into cold water for 15 minutes to cool. Doing it that way makes peeling them easy and it works with very fresh eggs too.

    I bake my eggs instead of boiling them and have a 90% success rate in peeling them

    place eggs in a muffin tin

    put the tin in the oven

    turn on the oven to 325 and bake 30 mins

    turn off the oven and let the eggs sit in the oven for another 5 mins

    Once my eggs are boiled, (and I only ever boil an egg for 5 minutes max and they are always hard), I pour out the boiling water and leave them to sit in the pot. Then I peel them at my leisure, that day or the following. The only issue I have is with really really fresh eggs !

    I figured it out! I took my 4 HB eggs out of the fridge this morning. Submerged them in a bowl of warm water for a few minutes. Peeled like they do right out of the pot

    Add a teaspoon of baking soda to the boiling water. It's supposed to make the eggs easier to peel.

    However, I don't add baking soda because I use the water for the houseplants. Nutrients from the eggs leach into the water so it's a bit of a fertilizer. I drain the eggs right into the watering can. Then I soak the eggs in an ice bath, peel, and return to the bath to rinse them off. The bathwater goes into the watering can too.

    My method is to peel them while submerged in the pot.

    1. Put eggs in small pot with tap water.
    2. Boil for 20 minutes.
    3. Drain and cool off with tap water.
    4. Fill the pot with water again.
    5. Peel eggs while submerged in the water.

    I've mentioned steaming eggs for easy peeling on this board for what feels like 500 thousand times. Give it a try. ;-)
