They will be fine. If I was feeling extra cautious I'd just make sure they werecooked a bit more thoroughly than usually, but really for 1 day out of date I'm not sure I'd even bother with that. Enjoy your eggs smile

Generally okay. Best way to test is to put them in a jug of water and see if they float.see here for how

Or crack and smell.

Most eggs will easily pass 2 weeks after date. Dates mean nothing!

A tilting egg still on base of container means its not fresh fresh once floating stale.
