All this egg talk made me want some

so I set them up to boil

and fell asleep!

They boiled for about 30 minutes.

they didn't crack.

is there ANY chance I can still eat them?

I think you can eat them - the yolks may look green. I think that's what they do when they cook too long. I'm not sure though. Hopefully someone else will answer ya quick.

Now I want some eggs :)

they are edible, lol
Sherri is right they may have a green ring around the yolk, but they will taste fine

ok! I was laying there dozing, not full sleeping of course, and thinking, "what IS that weird noise"

Erin they are fine to eat they have been cooked and are safe..a little green colour will not hurt them and the kids might like them too..LOL.. When l worked on the farm l would boil my eggs while we got ready to go out and work in the garden and l would leave them in the pot to cool down for lunch time..

They will be fine to eat. They just might be a little more dry in the center. I've over boiled mine lots of times and they still tasted fine.

the eggs were fine. I must have dozed for less long than I thought because they weren't discolored or anything, just totally normal fine.

I once boiled eggs for so long they exploded. My Mom was not happy with the mess on the ceiling!

Did you know they make an egg cooker for the microwave. I have one and use it all the time. You fill the bottom up with water then it has this metal thing you sit the eggs in and then a lid and you cook them for about 10 mins. depending on your microwave. It's great when you only want to cook one or two. It holds up to four. I got it at Wal-Mart over where they have thier microwaves.

Hmmm - I tried to cook eggs in the microwave once - many years ago. It was not very successful - as I recall it was a big mess. This new contraption sounds interesting!

Erin - glad your eggs were ok. I once forgot about them and the water boiled out and the shells and whites of the eggs were scorched brown!

I made egg salad with Miracle Whip two days ago - had some for lunch and then DH - who despises Miracle Whip ate the rest! I'm planning to get some green olives when I'm out later today and make some more!
