Sausage Egg and Cheese Casserole with Bread

Many moons ago, Barbara went to Purdue University where she lived in Cooperative housing with a large group of girls.   The house, called Glenwood Cooperative, was run by these girls who shared cooking and cleaning duties.

Barbara has a ton of great recipes from her Glenwood days, including this Egg and Sausage Breakfast Casserole.

She actually made it on a whim because she had a bunch of white sandwich buns left over from a birthday party. I think our Grandma Kuhn would be proud of her for not wasting them.
