Eggs-Zavier Week: The Celebration Sandwich

by bsherm on January 7, 2011

Well, things ended well last night. Yancy… wow, but really I think Holloway should have received the MVP, the Bearcats could not have secured a 20-point victory without his “effort”.

So we celebrate the Crosstown Shootout victory with my new addiction, the bacon and egg breakfast sandwich. If you recall, I have ready praised Red Fox’s Bacon sandwich.  It is a great way to start the day, but I wanted to create one at home. So let’s take a look at what I came up with.

I did not try to recreate Red Fox’s, I decided to go a different route. A truly great dish is more than the sum of its parts, but can really suffer by a weak player. So with my bacon and egg sandwich, I carefully assembled a great team:

Seriously, it would be rather difficult to screw this combination up. And if you orchestrate it properly, it comes together quickly and easily.


  • 2 Eggs.
  • Pinch Kosher Salt.
  • Couple turns of Black Pepper.
  • Tapatio (or some inferior hot sauce).
  • Stick Butter.
  • 2 Slices of Ciabatta.
  • 2 Slices of Bacon.
  • Miracle Whip.


If you have not already, be sure to read through the scrambled eggs post. Here is what you add to the process:

  1. Put two slices of Ciabatta in toaster, but don’t start it.
  2. Place two slices of bacon in microwave. (My current microwave will do 2 in two minutes) but don’t start it.
  3. Start the scrambled eggs as directed.
  4. Once you get to putting the eggs in pan, pop the toaster and turn on the microwave.
  5. When eggs are finished, remove pan from burner and begin assembly. Eggs will hold in cooling pan.
  6. Place toast on plate, lightly cover one half with Miracle whip.
  7. Place Eggs on Miracle Whipped slice.
  8. Place bacon on eggs.
  9. Eat and enjoy.

Here are the eggs resting on the bread:

Next you place the bacon on top. I started with 3 slices with my early attempts, but to my taste, 2 is perfect:

Then you lid it:

I love the combination of the toasted ciabatta, creamy scrambled eggs and crisp peppery bacon. It makes a delicious breakfast sandwich, but is certainly not as portable as Red Fox’s. To me a classic example of two very different, and delicious, takes on an entrée.

So, all you Bearcat fans, make yourself a celebratory sandwich. All you Eggs-Zavier fans, make one to cheer you up. After all, EVERYthing is better with bacon; dominating victory and embarrassing defeat.
