I usually have at home toasted grinned sesame seeds. I just put sesame seeds on a non stick pan and toast until golden brown. Once toasted I grind them in a coffee grinder and use them as an extra spice for many dishes. It's super delicious. 
I used calories count as one serving to be one piece of toast with one egg. It is so good that one person may actually eat two of them.
