Gashouse Eggs

Peel claimed that the only food that he could cook was Gashouse Eggs. In an article in the Radio Times, published on 17th December 1994, Peel claimed that the recipe was picked from a black and white American film about prison escapees. However, in an unknown celebrities cookbook, Peel mentioned discovering the recipe from a Humphrey Bogart movie. It is not known what movie it was, although in the 1950 film Lonely Place, which featured Bogart, he is seen eating ham and eggs, although not the Gashouse Eggs dish.
