Everyone will love these delicious egg snacks, but it’s important to follow a few food safety tips. First, make sure you purchase safe eggs and store them in the coldest part of the refrigerator. Before and after handling eggs,  wash your hands, utensils and surfaces, but do not wash eggs, as they have been properly sanitized before packing.

When transporting eggs to your Super Bowl party, make sure to keep hot dishes hot and cold dishes cold. Pack cold dishes in an insulated bag or cooler with ice or freezer packs. For warm egg-containing dishes, use thermal containers to keep the food hot (140 degrees F or higher.)

If you’re serving food buffet style, use food warmers or thermal containers to keep hot food hot, and ice or freezer packs to keep cold food cold. Serve buffet foods in small dishes and replenish with fresh dishes often, rather than leaving foods at room temperature where bacteria can thrive.   Thoroughly reheat leftovers and eat within two to three days. Without tasting them, discard any egg-containing leftovers that have been refrigerated more than three days. Hard-cooked eggs should be refrigerated within two hours of cooking and used within one week.

If you follow these tips, you’re sure to have a safe and delicious Super Bowl featuring delicious egg dishes. To keep up-to-date on tips on egg safety year round, follow us on Twitter and Facebook.
