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!
