    I cooked some eggs, but I accidentally left them in the microwave, so my question is, how long can they stay in the microwave?

    Depends on how long they were left unrefrigerated after cooking them.

    If it got back down to room temperature for more than 30 mins or more I wouldn't risk it, especially since you can't usually reheat egg to piping hot again without turning it rubbery or dry.

    How long can they stay in the microwave? As long as you leave them in there. [​IMG]

    Sorry, I'm sure you are asking if they are still good to eat. It would be become dog food or chicken food in my house.

    At my house, only until someone is ready to heat up a cup of water for tea or coffee.... [​IMG]
