boiled egg question

poptart | Aug 26, 2008 07:41 AM


I often make a batch of hard boiled eggs and they come out just fine. However, last night I wasn't paying close attention to the pot. If anything I thought I'd overcooked the eggs.

However, this morning when shelled one to have for b'fast, the whites were very runny. Unfortunately I can't stomach runny eggs, so I am wondering, can I take the remaining eggs in the fridge (assuming they are similarly undercooked) and re-boil to finish cooking? Or can I cook them in a pan (taking out of the shells of course) like a fried egg or frittata?

Or should I just start over?

Just curious because I have never had this happen before
