Barbara pulled out her Glenwood (college cooperative) recipe file again for this Egg and Sausage Breakfast Casserole. And it is another winner.
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.
Barbara served this casserole for lunch paired with some fruit and sliced tomatoes. It’s now a part of her weekly meal plan on the same weeks she makes biscuits and gravy as she usually only uses a half pound of sausage for her gravy. Now the other half pound can be used in this dish.
Egg and Sausage Breakfast Casserole
This recipe is for an 8-inch x 8-inch baking dish but if you have a larger family (or just a hungry family) or want it for a get-together, it is easily doubled and can fit in a 9-inch x 13-inch or similar size baking dish.
