why do eggs turn green on a buffet?
Not sure what you mean...are they harboiled? In shell or out? A green rim around the yolk of a hard boiled egg means it has cooked too long.
I've seen light green shells from certain breeds - similiar to brown egg but green. I guess the white could be dyed after it is boiled.

I discovered over 1 1/2 yr ago that this place was deader than a door nail and don't know why they don't take it off the board. It is a waste of space and there are a few others almost like it.
Eggs turn green on a buffet because the eggs react with the aluminium pan. Use a stainless steel chafing dish to stop the eggs from turning green.
When the tides of life are against you
And the current upsets your boat
Don't think of things that might have been
Just lay on your back and float

Oh Lawdy, here come de (aluminum) judge, almost 10 month late.
There are a couple of different senarios to consider when holding eggs on a buffet. One; the temperature the eggs are being held, is the buffet table heat a direct heat or steam table. If direct heat the temperature could be to high/hot. Two; the amount of time the eggs have been on the buffet table. Eggs can be persnickety. A 20-30 minute window of being held on direct heat, with direct heat not being higher than 212 degrees F and covered is the best case for holding. Three; if mushrooms or olives are being stored close by the buffet table, they will cause eggs to either turn green, gray or black. Again, eggs are persnickety.
I hope this helps. Faith
