What Are Gashouse Eggs And Why Are They Called That?
The 1941 musical “Moon Over Miami” helped popularize the term “gashouse” eggs, which is one name for an egg fried in a carved-out piece of bread. This dish has many other names like eggy in the hole, bird's nest, and one-eyed Jack, which all closely relate to the look of the dish, but “gashouse” may be a bit more abstract.
Gashouse eggs became more well-known in the 19th century when European immigrants brought the dish to America. Gashouse may come from the German "gasthaus," meaning small cottage or inn, which may mean that it was served in countryside cottages, or it may refer to the egg being housed inside the bread.
"Moon Over Miami" isn't the only movie to give this meal a resurgence in popularity — 1987’s "Moonstruck" features a version of the dish served with peppers, and in 2005’s "V for Vendetta," V prepares an eggy in the basket for Natalie Portman's character. No matter what you call it, this egg recipe is simple, delicious, and fun to think up names for.
