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.

Although these hot and gooey potatoes definitely fall into the “comfort food” category, I like to think of this recipe as a cheesy potato casserole or the perfect side dish to serve with Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner!

In fact, it’s so easy to put together, you can make this Funeral Potatoes recipe alongside a big Sunday evening meal like Oven Baked Pork Chops — or on any day of the week, for that matter!

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 Funeral Potatoes 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.
