    I came across a site that had another method to "boiled" eggs that peel easily...Bake the eggs at 325 for 20-25 minutes run cold water over them and the shell will come off with no problems. I tried it with one egg in case it didn't work. I used an egg that was collected that morning and it peeled so easy not one bit of the egg went to waste.

    Sounds interesting, I may give it a try next time I have the oven on for something.

    Makes sense. It would greatly reduce the amount of moisture in the egg causing it to separate from the inside of the shell.

    I am going to try this right now. I wanted hard boiled eggs for a salad but everything I have is really fresh. I'll see how it goes!! Do they need to be turned?

    No, I baked it in a muffin tin as the instruction said to keep them from rolling I forgot to put that in the post.

    Let us know the results. DH loves boiled eggs, so this might be a good way to get them to peel more easily..

    Mine were still a pain to peel but I usually let them sit in ice water for about 2 hours and this time they only cooled about 15 minutes so that could have been the problem.

    Tried this several times and they were horrible. They didn't peel any easier and they tasted funny. The one we use is to bring the water to a hard boil, then drop the eggs in all at once and boil for 15 minutes. Then drain them and dump ice on top of them. They peel every time even with brand new eggs.
