I boiled eggs late last night & fell asleep waiting on them to cool so I could peel them & refrigerate. When i woke up this morning the water was cool. Are they ok to eat?
The FDA does not consider this safe. Here are their relevant recommendations for serving and storing cooked eggs:
Serve cooked eggs (such as hard-boiled eggs and fried eggs) and egg-containing foods (such as such as quiches and soufflés) immediately after cooking. Cooked eggs and egg dishes may be refrigerated for serving later but should be thoroughly reheated to 165° F before serving.
Never leave cooked eggs or egg dishes out of the refrigerator for more than 2 hours or for more than 1 hour when temperatures are above 90° F. Bacteria that can cause illness grow quickly at warm temperatures (between 40° F and 140° F).
