  • I usually let them sit all day once I make them. Then when I feel like it I dry them off and put them in the fridge.

  • I've left them out for hours.

  • You can leave them out for several hours but they may expire a little quicker.

  • No more than 2 hours. NO food should be left out for more than that amount of time.

  • I have left out eggs out for about 6 hours (Easter time) and they were still good even a few days after they were in the fridge.

  • I've also read that 2 hours is the maximum amount of time they should be left out.
