    How long can I keep sauteed (actually caramelized) onions at room temperature?  I finished cooking them at 1pm and will be using them in an onion tart which will then be baked for 40 minutes at around 4:30.  Can I leave them out or do I need to refrigerate them?

    play it safe and refrigerate them....at least keep on ice.
