Introduction: Cheesy Potatoes (AKA Mormon Funeral Potatoes)
This is a Thanksgiving/Christmas/Easter favorite. In the Plains States, where I grew up, we called this Cheesy Potatoes. Apparently it's called Funeral Potatoes in Utah. Features all the dairy and a small amount of potatoes.
Step 1: Gather Ingredients
You will need:
2 lbs. frozen hash browns (thawed)
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 cup sour cream
1 cup chopped onion
8 oz. grated cheddar jack
8 oz. grated velveeta
3/4 cup butter (one and a half sticks)
1/2 t salt
2 cups crushed corn flakes
Step 2: Other Preparation
Spray a 9"x13" pan with nonstick cooking spray and preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Step 3: Mix Together Filling
In a large bowl, mix together potatoes, soup, sour cream, onion, cheddar jack, velveeta, one stick of melted butter, and salt.
Step 4: Put Filling in Baking Dish
Spread the filling into the dish evenly. You'll need to pack it down too.
Step 5: Crush Corn Flakes
Fill a two cup measure with corn flakes and start crushing. Keep adding and crushing until you have two cups of crushed corn flakes.
Step 6: Make Topping
Melt the other half stick of butter and stir it in with the corn flakes. Spread this on top of the filling.
Step 7: Bake and Enjoy.
Bake at 350 for 45 minutes. Give yourself a heart attack from all the cheesy goodness. Who knows, maybe they'll serve more of these at your funeral!
