Question About Fried Eggs vs. Hard Boiled ... #4576369

Hey, I've been eating hard boiled eggs x 2 or 3 with breakfast each a.m. before leaving for work. Other stuff with them but none of that has recently changed. Been frying them the past week or so mainly because 1. haven't felt like futzing with boiling up a batch, and 2. Nice change from boiled eggs. I use an olive oil based non-stick spray and a teflon pan, I use minimal spray and then rub it in w/ a paper towel so no excess non-stick spray.

I've noticed a definite energy boost since switching to frying the eggs instead of eating them cold hard boiled out of fridge.

Is there any reason fried eggs would digest more efficiently or something about cold hard boiled that my body doesn't break them down all the way?

Maybe the olive oil in the spray is helping a bit. I remember reading that recently how using some olive oil, not the spray is a good way to cook up eggs for some health benefits. I had some hard boiled eggs the other day and had the toughest time removing the shell. Not sure I'll do that again any time soon. What a pain!

Why are you minimizing the olive oil? Olive oil is healthy.

My guess is it is more "liquid" in fried so you digest it faster, giving you more energy?

Having worked in the nutritional supplement industry for years I would say it's possibly a placebo effect. But, maybe the more direct contact with the heat source causes the proteins in the eggs to denature more which would possibly make them more digestible. Just a wild stab there.

Get rid of the spray and just use olive oil in the pan. Maybe you just prefer a warm, better tasting breakfast. Hard boiled eggs are bland/disgusting to most folks, but we still eat them because we know they are a good source of protein.

Eggs should be cooked as little as possible to get the full nutritional value. Scrambled is the worst way to eat eggs for example, soft boiled or poached is best.

If fried cook them in generous amount of grass fed butter like Kerry Gold and leave the yolks runny. The olive oil spray is probably made with low grade olive oil and even good olive will oxidize at high temperatures.

Here is a good egg article:

Yeah so do I, too bland otherwise and cayenne pepper is a healthy spice as well.

My tip for that:

Boil water first
Once boiling take eggs from fridge and put in boiling water right away
After boiling for 10 -15 mins drain water out of pan
Fill pan with a bit of water and lots of ice cubes to quickly chill the eggs. Peel them 10 mins later. They should be alot easier to peel.

Also i heard that fresher eggs are worse for hard boiling..so maybe hard boil eggs closer to expiration date

I may have found a "better" tip. Maybe...We are having much greater success peeling "Cage Free" eggs. Mind you I don't care how a chicken is housed. But I do like boiled eggs that peel easily. We are on our 4th dozen as we eat 4/day and we have only had 1 difficult to peel boiled egg. Yeah, those "Cage Free" eggs cost more but to my wife and I, they are worth it. And their yolk is golden orange not pale yellow. With regular eggs I finally got so irritated I went back to scrambling/frying.

Boil eggs 3 minutes, turn burner off and let sit covered for 10 minutes. No grey ring around the yoke this way.
