An easy way I have found to peel hard boiled eggs, is with a teaspoon. Hard boil your eggs whatever way that works for you. I crack the shells then use the spoon to peel the eggs. The freshness of the eggs will determine how easy they peel. The fresher the egg, the harder to peel. I dip my spoon in water or spray Pam on the spoon if the eggs are harder to peel.

I'll have to try that method. Sounds easier. Thanks! I roll mine allover the counter top to crush the complete shell which makes it easy to get the whole shell off faster.
After the eggs are boiled I crack them with a big spoon handle while in hot water. Let them stay in water till ready to eat, they are easy to peel, good luck.
I tried this and it worked very well - thank you for the idea!
My mom showed me a way for boiled eggs many years ago. She would cut the cooled boiled egg in 1/2 with a sharp knife. And just run a spoon along the inner edge, and "scoop" the egg out onto our plate. Was a very fast process. And with hungry kids that helps. I do it this way also for egg salad, because it "speeds up" the process. Faster & easier.
