"gas house" :: "gasthaus" :: "guest house" :: B&B breakfast...?

A Gasthaus (also called Gasthof, Landhaus, or Pension) is a German-style inn or tavern with a bar, a restaurant, banquet facilities and hotel rooms for rent.

I believe that it was misspelled here, and in Wikipedia. However, since eating many eggs can cause "The Vapors" Gas House might be appropriate.

Where did you get that name?

Maybe if I knew what a gas house was it would help :-)

this might answer your question better.. :) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Egg_in_the_basket

I got the name from the recipe that I used.

Gas house eggs are eggs that you fry in a skillet like above but you only use bread instead of tortillas and salsa like the Mexican Gas house eggs. :) Hope that answers your question. :)
