Hard boiled eggs

Sorry for the lame post....my wife left hard boiled eggs out last night on the counter and asked me if they were still ok to eat? I have no idea. At worst they can still be dyed.

      1. I'd say they're fine too ... as long as the weather wasn't too hot

        1. Third - fine. The Easter bunny does it doesn't she?

          1. Most people in the world don't refrigerate eggs. The shell is a near-perfect barrier between the sterile nutrients inside and the dirty world outside. So long as the shells are intact, the risk is minimal at most.

              That's true, I've seen them boiled and sold unrefrigerated in very hot countries so it should be fine!
