Like many others I try to eat as healthy as possible and still enjoy eating what I like. Sesame oil is my go to for many things. It has nothing to do with how healthy it is or isn't as I do not use a lot of oil in anything, but I do love the flavor of sesame. I specially like it in Asian cold slaw. Of course in fried rice as well, but I have never thought about doing my eggs in it and would never imagine using sesame seed oil and sugar in any omelette. Like Steve I have a variety of oils and each has a place in my cooking.

a touch of toasted sesame oil is great in a stir fry. Adds a bit of depth to a sourdough bread, or any bread if you're making a savory flavored one. Not so good for sweet breads. Goes well in some salad dressings, too.

We have sesame, toasted sesame, olive, corn, orange and grape oils in the cupboard at the moment. I probably use more olive oil than anything else. Somehow a can of Crisco showed up, not sure from where and there's lard, too, but it was rendered from the last pig that was annoying my friend's garden. Lard laced with toasted sesame oil is great for frying chicken.
