 Of 5 g fat,  only 1.5g is saturated. Just don't cook it in butter! I use the microwave. Whip the eggs in a bowl, add ham, spinach, mozzarella. cover and microwave. 3 minutes in mine

As an ex semi serious weight trainer who used to eat at least half a dozen whole eggs a day I took my advice from the NHS which basically says that there is more risk to your health from total sat fat consumption and the knock on effect on blood cholesterol levels, than the cholesterol in eggs. If you have a cholesterol problem then you need to monitor and probably reduce sat fat intake however there are more obvious ways to reduce this than cutting out eggs which are very good for you in many ways.

 The answer to the egg question seems to be very back and forth, depending on what is read. This article says whole eggs can raise HDL with little to no effect on LDL. The liver produces necessary cholesterol. When more is taken in by diet, the liver produces less. Three eggs, scrambled please.

I don't eat eggs every day but I have started rotating them every other day with my instant oatmeal... not really even every other day since I don't eat breakfast every day... i just rotate when I do eat breakfast.

 

I do this same thing. I eat 2 Morning Star brand breakfast sausage patties cooked in a little bit of Ghee with my egg every other morning. 

 

Eggs are just a comfort food for me I guess.
