how long can eggs sit out?

Eggs are perishable and can harbor bacteria, so it’s essential to handle them with care. In general, eggs should not sit out at room temperature for more than two hours. If the temperature is above 32°C , the time limit shortens to just one hour. After this period, bacteria can multiply rapidly, increasing the risk of foodborne illness.

If you’ve boiled the eggs for a recipe like deviled eggs, the two-hour rule still applies. Once cooked, perishable foods should not be left at room temperature for an extended period.

To ensure food safety, it’s recommended to refrigerate eggs promptly. If you’ve left eggs out for too long or are unsure about their safety, it’s better to err on the side of caution and discard them to avoid the risk of foodborne illness. Always store eggs in the refrigerator to maintain their freshness and minimize health risks.

Egg salad recipe

Hey there, fellow foodie! Today, I’m sharing a classic recipe that’s been passed down through generations – the Easy Peasy Deviled Eggs Delight. 

These little bites of heaven are perfect for potlucks, brunches, or just when you want a tasty snack. 

Deviled eggs have a rich history, dating back to ancient Rome, and have since become a beloved appetizer around the world.


  • · 6 large eggs
  • · 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • · 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • · 1/2 teaspoon white vinegar
  • · Salt and pepper to taste
  • · Paprika for garnish
  • · Optional toppings: chopped chives, crispy bacon bits

Step-by-Step Cooking Instructions:

  1. Boil the Eggs (15 minutes): Start by placing the eggs in a single layer in a saucepan. Cover them with water, bring it to a boil, then let it simmer for about 10-12 minutes. Once done, transfer the eggs to an ice water bath to cool for easier peeling.
  2. Peel and Slice (10 minutes): Gently peel the cooled eggs and slice them in half lengthwise. Scoop out the yolks into a bowl and set the egg whites aside.
  3. Mash and Mix (5 minutes): Mash the egg yolks with a fork until they're nice and crumbly. Add mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, white vinegar, salt, and pepper. Mix until smooth and creamy.
  4. Fill 'Em Up (5 minutes): Spoon or pipe the yolk mixture back into the egg white halves. Get creative with the presentation – a star tip or a simple spoon will do.
  5. Garnish (2 minutes): Sprinkle a dash of paprika over the top for a pop of color. If you're feeling fancy, add chopped chives or crispy bacon bits for extra flavor.
