Cheesy Potatoes (AKA Mormon Funeral Potatoes)




About: Sometimes I enter contests. Mostly I laze about with my cats.

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.
