I just bought myself some macadamia oil since my taste buds wanted a change from the coconut-y taste of coconut oil. I'm wondering if any one knows of anything that tastes superb with macadamia oil. Has any one tried cooking eggs with it; I usually have eggs with fat or butter, but I'm trying to add a little vegan to my paleo diet.

I've never used it, but have been wanting to try it. I've heard it's great for homemade salad dressings/vinaigrette.

I use it a lot for baked goods with almond flour and pan frying fish and chicken. It's delicious! Also great for making your own (cheaper) mac butter: Put mac nuts and mac oil in food processor. Mac nuts don't get quite butter-y enough on their own in the food processor.

I love using it for kale chips (with sea salt or a made up spice mix of your choosing) and also for cooking the occasional batch of coconut flour pancakes in.

Excellent mayonnaise and salad dressings. Great for baking and great for roasting meat.

I don't like the taste with eggs, but I don't like eggs with olive or coconut oil either.

Anything! I always go half butter/half macadamia nut oil when I roast things. These include butternut squash, yams, beets, carrots, etc. The butter pairs very well with macadamia, they have a very similar "buttery" flavor. And I haven't tried cooking eggs in it yet, I always use coconut oil for eggs.
