Funeral Potatoes – A Beautiful Mess


I’m continuing on my path to share as many comforting casserole recipes as I can this season. Very funny today, we’re talking about funeral potatoes, sometimes called cheese potatoes. This simple and comforting dish is great for any potluck or holiday meal. Everyone will love this!

You may wonder why this dish is called funeral potatoes. This is the type of side dish sometimes served in churches after funeral lunches. Sometimes there is a committee that provides these meals to grieving families. I remember when my grandfather died, there was a meal after his funeral at the First Baptist Church where he lived, and where I grew up I would go to church with him and my grandmother when we would visit. Regardless of whether you call these funeral potatoes or cheesy potatoes, the bottom line is that this is a very comforting and delicious casserole that goes with just about anything.

ingredients

  • Potatoes cut into cubes or frozen brown potatoes
  • sour cream
  • Mushroom soup
  • ghee
  • salt
  • Pepper
  • Garlic powder
  • Onion powder
  • cayenne
  • Cheddar cheese
  • corn chips
  • Green onions – or chives

directione

In a large bowl, combine sour cream, cream of mushroom soup, half the melted butter (1/4 cup), salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne pepper, and shredded cheese. Then stir the potatoes (frozen) into this mixture.

Lightly grease a 9 x 13 baking pan. Add this mixture to the pan, and distribute it evenly.

In a gallon-sized ziplock bag, crush the cornflakes and add the remaining melted butter. Sprinkle this over the potato layer.

Cover the dish with aluminum foil and bake at 350°F (177°F) for 45-50 minutes total. After the first 25 minutes, remove the foil for the rest of the baking time.

When done, the top will look golden and crispy. Sprinkle green onions on top before serving.

Tips and alternatives

  • If you want to do it ahead of time, you can! Just keep the cornflakes separate until you’re ready to bake so they don’t become soggy.
  • If you want to add a little more heat and flavor, I would replace half the cheddar cheese with pepper jack cheese instead.
  • If you’re making this for Thanksgiving or Christmas, consider substituting scallions, rosemary, or thyme.
