"Early Show" Cook-Off: An Egg-cellent Ending!

NEW YORK -- This week, "Early Show" anchors have showed off their skills cooking up versions of their favorite breakfast dishes. In the final Battle for Breakfast challenge, they took a crack at making Chris Wragge's favorite breakfast food: eggs.

Chris was looking to defend his title as the winner of January's Comfort Food Cook-Off. Did he pull off a repeat?

Celebrity chef and judge Spike Mendelsohn, chef and owner of We the Pizza in Washington, D.C., was on hand to offer the anchors cooking tips and judge their dishes.

"Early Show" Recipes Galore
"Early Show" Cook-Off: Erica Hill's Grits
"Early Show" Cook-Off: Jeff Glor's Pancakes
"Early Show" Cook-Off: Marysol Castro's French Toast

Going into the final challenge, it was still anyone's game: Marysol led with 11 points, Jeff and Erica were tied with 10 points each, and Chris had 8 points.

Was Chris able to come from behind -- as he did last time -- and retain his crown?

It turned out he not only wasn't -- he finished last.

The "winner' was -- Erica! A $500 donation was made in her name to her favorite food-based charity.
