Eggs-Zavier Week: Back to Comfort

by bsherm on February 18, 2015

Egg-ZIt’s that time of the year again, the time when the University of Cincinnati Bearcats battle “crosstown” rival Xavier in the Crosstown Shootout.

Four years ago I started what was going to be an annual tradition of highlighting egg dishes in “honor” of rival Eggs-Zavier (I am a Cincinnati grad myself).  By the next year, my blog had fallen in my lists of priorities, and as it would happen, we had our worst game as both teams showed a total lack of self-control with a bench clearing brawl. I was happy I had let it slide. The competition was renamed “Crosstown Classic” (because THAT would fix the issue) and moved to a neutral site. This year, the name Shootout returns, and the game also returns to alternating sites, this year at the Shoe.

So in honor to the return of the old moniker, and in hopes that I can start posting again at pFoody, I decided to bring back the Eggs-Zavier week post. And since what is old is new again, I thought I would go with a comfort food. Baked Custard.

Eggs-Zavier Week: The Celebration Sandwich

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.

Eggs-Zavier Week: Omelette

January 5, 2011

So now we move on to the Omelette. This can have a fussy vibe, but the similarities to scrambled eggs are significant. No surprise, my epiphany regarding omelettes came courtesy of Alton Brown yet again. This time it was in Season 7, Episode 3 in the episode The Egg Files VI.

Eggs-Zavier Week

January 3, 2011

This is Crosstown Shootout week in Cincinnati. The Crosstown Shootout is the annual game between the University of Cincinnati and Xavier University. They are not really crosstown, approximately 3 miles separates the two campuses, but it is a long-standing rivalry. As a UC grad (BA Econ, MBA) I have watched many a crosstown shootout. So, why would I name […]
