What are Funeral Potatoes?
This easy-to-make dish is traditionally served at post-funeral dinners when friends and family gather to remember a loved one.
But this creamy and crunchy hash brown potato casserole is also the perfect side to serve at celebratory get-togethers or a cozy family dinner. It definitely falls into the “comfort food” category and is a wonderful addition to your Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner!
And fall is the perfect time for all cheesy casserole recipes like chicken tetrazzini or cheesy chicken stuffed shells. The more cheese the better, amirite?
How Do You Make Funeral Potatoes From Scratch?
This hash brown potato casserole is not technically ‘from scratch’ since frozen hash browns and canned soup are the main ingredients. But no one will care once they taste how delicious these hot and gooey potatoes are!
- Mix together sour cream, chicken soup, 1/2 cup melted butter, onion powder, garlic powder, pepper, and cheddar cheese.
- Add hash browns, mix and fold into a 9×13 baking dish.
- Crush Corn Flakes and mix with the remaining melted butter. Spread over casserole.
- Bake for 35- 40 minutes at 350˚F until hot and bubbly.
Can You Freeze Funeral Potatoes?
Want to make prep for this scrumptious dish even easier? You can throw all the ingredients into a pan and freeze it for up to 30 days. When you’re ready to bake up a batch, take it out of the freezer to thaw, then pop it in the oven.
As the holidays roll around, it definitely wouldn’t hurt to have a hash brown potato casserole frozen and ready to go when you need a dish for last-minute get-togethers or dinner plans. Plus, it’s an easy dish to travel with if someone else is hosting the big meal.
Funeral Potatoes may sound depressing, but one bite will prove that they’re delicious enough to be enjoyed on any occasion! There’s really no bad time to eat potatoes, and this crowd-pleasing recipe will have everyone coming back for more.
