Typing ‘Funeral’ into a
Google search recently, I was completely surprised when Google suggested
‘Funeral Potatoes’ as a searched phrase. Curious, I clicked on the
suggestion to find out more.
What I discovered is that
“Funeral Potatoes” is a term given to a dish, made largely from potatoes,
that is traditionally served at Mormon funerals. It is also otherwise
known as Christmas Potatoes”, Ward Party Potatoes” and “Potato Casserole”.
It is suggested that the dish originated in Utah, although other sources
lay claim to it also being a Southern dish.
32 oz bag of frozen shredded
2 (10 3/4 oz) cans Cream of
2 cups Sour Cream
1 1/2 cup grated Cheddar Cheese
(I like to use sharp Cheddar Cheese)
1/2 cup melted butter or margarine
1/2 c. chopped onion
2 cups finely crushed Corn Flakes
2 Tbs butter or margarine melted
1. Grease 9x13 baking dish and
preheat oven to 350
2. In large bowl combine soups,
sour cream, cheese, onions, and the 1/2 cup of melted butter.
3. Gently fold hash browns into
4. Pour mixture into pan.
5. Combine crushed corn flakes
and the 2 Tbs. of melted butter and sprinkle on top of potato mixture.
6. Bake for 30 minutes.
7. *If wanting to, you can use
cubed potatoes instead of hash browns but you will need to increase baking
time to 55 minutes.
If traveling the country
I am informed that Cracker Barrel offer a Funeral Potatoes dish, otherwise
titled ‘Potato Casserole’!!
