These are really simple to make and they add variety to your morning.  

Step 1: Ingredients Needed

Olive oil
1 tortilla, corn or flour
1 egg
Salt & pepper to taste
Salsa
Grated cheese

Step 2: Step 2

Turn on the broiler.
Heat a skillet on medium. Lightly brush the skillet with olive oil, also both sides of the tortilla. With a knife, cut a circle from the center of the tortilla. Drop the tortilla into the skillet (it should sizzle a bit), the cutout piece alongside.
Crack an egg into the center hole. Season with salt and pepper. 

Step 3:

Gently arrange tiny spoonsful of salsa around the egg, sprinkle the salsa with cheese. When the bottom of the tortilla is golden, transfer the skillet to the broiler to finish cooking the egg.

Step 4:

broil till done about 6-10 min depending on how done you want it.

    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. :)
