I'm a terrible cook. I'm wondering how long to boil 1 egg(50g) for a hard-boiled egg?

Also, does anyone know how much protein is in 1 egg(white only) ?

6.5g protein total. 3.6g in the egg white. 80 calories.

Oh, and just boil it for like 8 min. or if you dont trust it..untill the eggs start breaking open.

I boil my eggs for 10 minutes. Around 7-8 minutes for me leaves the yolks a little runny.

I cook mine for about 20 minutes. If you undercook eggs, you will not get the full benefits due to the mucus membrane being left behind. The mucus membrane inhibits digestion, which defeats the purpose of eating.
