How long would hard boiled eggs keep in the fridge or freezer?

I'm thinking of doing a bunch up for the week and then grabbing them when I need them. Anyone try something like this?

they last longer if you don't peel them. i keep HB eggs in the fridge for a week routinely. if you peel them, however, they don't keep as long.

I routinely make them and have them in the frige up to a week (unpeeled)

As I have not puked or died yet I reckon they last a week no prob.

I've eaten boiled eggs that were up to 3 weeks old in the fridge.

I cook up a weeks worth at a time, but i have been known to take 2 weeks to get through them all if i only eat 1 a day instead of 2. I keep mine peeled and other than the fact they wreak up the fridge like my farts do.... its all good

Some grocery stores keep eggs on pallets at room temperature for weeks before putting them in the refrigerator, and eventually out in the dairy case. They keep quite a while, although they won't taste as fresh. I eat them too fast for me to keep cooked ones for over a week, but the uncooked ones in my fridge are sometimes there for 2 weeks until I get to them. (I have 8-9 dozen on hand at all times). They're fine.

I just crack 'em open and drink 'em raw. 6 whites, 1 yolk. I don't have time or patience for all that peeling.

Yuck! Not exactly good for you either AND you're not getting the full benefits of the egg if it isn't cooked. If you want to know what I mean do a search for "avidin" and posts by TheGimp.

when you eat hard boiled eggs do you not eat the yolks and just the egg whites?

You can eat the yolk if you want. It's up to you. The yolk contains most of the calories, about half the protein, all of the fat, and a few vitamins.

Boiled eggs always stink.

Boiled eggs always stink.

You'll know the difference between the normal "stink" and the rotten "stink".
