Our family also calls this dish “Funeral Potatoes” and that’s the title I used to search for this. As others have mentioned, I too use the cubed hash browns (or the O’Brien kind); I use shredded cheese (of the cheddar variety) and one can of soup – cream of chicken. I also use corn flakes instead of bread crumbs. Also, I add about 1/2 of an onion, diced. Awesome! A great compliment to ham. I always make this for Easter. Good for potlucks too!
Best cheesy potato recipe! I know them as church potluck potatoes because someone always brings something similar but this is by far the best recipe!
I had never heard of funeral potatoes until my husband requested them. Thank goodness this recipe was here. It is now a staple in our family and everyone loves them.
This is a very good recipe. I make it fairly often. Only when I make it, I omit the water and the cream of mushroom soup, and I add about a cup of grated cheddar cheese in with the mixture. It makes it less soupy. I have used the cream of cheddar cheese soup too instead of the processed cheese and it turns out delicious. My family and I love it.
Zippity do da! This is great BUT YOU NEED MORE HASHBROWNS!!! I made this twice in less than a week. The first time, I used those “Southern Hashbrowns” (they’re square) and a 4lb bag of them!! (I know!! 4lbs!!) but followed the recipe to the letter – except I just added the amt of breadcrumbs I felt “looked right.” I was feeding a crowd that night and I didn’t have ANY LEFT! But I made them a second time, (again, using the 4lb bag of square hashbrowns) but this time, I used a 15.5oz jar of cheese chili con carne. This type of mexican cheese gave them a zippy kick. We loved it this way too (almost better!!). Yes it makes a lot (we had leftovers) BUT I can’t figure out how you can halve the sauce portion w/out wasting some of the “cream of…” soups! With the changes I made, this was awesome and loved by everyone!
