put some vinegar and salt in your water when you cook them.  about 1/4 cup vinegar and a tablespoon of salt.  Bring to a boil and turn the burner off and let them sit for 15-17 minutes.  Pour off the water and knock them around in the pan a little to crack them, pour in some cold water and start to peel.  They will peel a lot easier because of the salt and vinegar and you won't taste either of them in the eggs.
