How safe is it to use cooked egg in bento. I'd like to try a frittata recipe but I'm worried it could spoil. Also what are some guidelines for using egg safely and if it can be properly reheating egg.

Thanks for the help : )

Re: eggs

I use egg frequently. It never got spoilt for me before. I would advice to cook it really well so there is no change for even a tiny bit to go uncooked. After a day carrying it around you shold not use it again, if you din't have the time to eat it. But keppt cool it can last a few days. Or so is my expirience.

Oh.... by the way it even worked in summer, and it can get really warm sometimes

Re: eggs

Eggs (as tamagoyaki, iri tamago, usuyaki tamago, boiled eggs, etc etc...) are a standard bento item. As long as you observe basic safety precautions, they are fine.

- make sure you are using reasonably fresh eggs and good eggs to start with (Egg quality varies a lot by where you are buying it from and so on.)
- make sure your egg dish has been cooked through. Avoid runny-inside omelettes or soft-boiled eggs for the most part
- this may be the most important: make sure the egg dish, not to mention everything else in your bento box, has been cooled thoroughly before packing. Condensation from warm food trapped inside a box is one of the shortest ways to spoilage.

I don't like to make egg dishes too far ahead, because storing them in the refrigerator changes their texture. A day ahead should be ok though.

Re: eggs

Eggs... in many forms... are a staple in my bentos: scrambled as a supplement to a meat soboro; hard boiled; or in a quiche or frittata. For some reason I think: once they're cooked, they're good. There's nothing in a quiche or frittata that, once cooked, would spoil.
