In brief: Once or twice a week

An egg a couple of times a week is just fine and should not increase your risk of high cholesterol, as long as you do not have an underlying disease that increases your cholesterol.
You can make them even better by removing 1/2 or even all of the egg yolk from the boiled eggs...

In brief: 2 per week

In general, most people should get 2 egg yolks per week - whites are essentially unlimited.
