Boiling your eggs is one of the healthiest ways to prepare them, because you don’t need anything more than hot water and a saucepan when you’re cooking. As there are no oils or fats involved in boiling an egg you can save calories and enjoy a simple, healthy snack in just a few minutes.
Of course, it’s what you eat with your boiled egg that will change the overall nutritional content – for instance, if you were to have them as part of a scotch egg this would result in a lot more calories than if they were simply sliced over a salad.
One large boiled egg would contain just under 80 calories.
Typical nutritional values per large egg:
Energy 78kcals; Protein 7.5g; Total fat 5.4g; Saturated fat 1.5g; Salt 0.23g.
If you use a medium rather than a large egg, calories and other nutritional values will be slightly lower.
