    Drop them in the boiling water and return to boil for 10-12 minutes and then drain and add cold water! They will peel like a charm!

    I put them in the cold water (add a few tablespoons of salt per dozen makes pealing easier and a tablespoon of vinegar) when the water boils take them off the heat and let them sit in the hot water for 15 mins. Take out and put in an ice/water bath in the sink. They peel great!

    Get the water up to a boil, put in the eggs. pull them out, put in cold water. They'll peel easy.

    It also depends on it you want hard boiled or soft boiled. Soft boiled eggs need to boil for like 5-7 minutes.
