I cook hard boiled eggs with shells in meat cholent and was wondering if I could eat them during the nine days. If cooked before Rosh Chodesh Av or after - would that make a difference?

this egg - a tavshil shel bassar (although excluded by the Shulchan aruch) is included in the 9 days prohibition by the vast majority of Ashkenazic poskim as well as several contemporary sefardic ones as well - similar to laws of meat and milk.
see this excellent comprehensive article by rabbi Y. spitz addressing this exact issue (in the postscript):
Since the issue is eating meat during the nine days, I don't think it makes a difference when the meat was prepared.
