I boiled some eggs on Tuesday, and they were still bright yellow inside - not quite as opaque as they should be. Do I reboil them? For how long? Or do I just use them as is? I haven't used them yet because I didn't know what to do with them. But I know that waiting isn't good for them either.

Suggestions?

Thanks,
Aven

Yummm - I LOVE soft boiled eggs - with a bit of salt and butter! LOL Soooooo not healthy! LOL

As for now, its hard to say what to do with them - could they have cooked a bit more in the shell as they sat?

Yummmmm

*technically* they are not safe to eat, because they are still a bit raw. But it is no different than eating a fried egg with a runny yolk.

And I eat raw cookie dough too

What do you mean by "bright yellow"... are they still runny? Hard cooked egg yolks should always still be bright yellow, or else they're overcooked. If it's still runny though, that's another matter.

If it's mostly firm and just a tad runny, then I'd say go ahead and use it like you were planning to. If it's quite runny, then I'd probably just eat them whole (less mess). Either way, if the rest of the egg is hard-cooked, then chances are good that it got plenty hot enough to kill anything, just not hot enough to solidify. I wouldn't have any trouble eating them, but then I don't mind soft boiled or sunny side up eggs.

I'd use them as is ... but then I make soft-boiled eggs all the time, so I'd probably consider these over-cooked.
