Cheese Funeral Potatoes Recipe


Like any other dish you would make, the first step in the process is to take inventory of what you have at home versus what you need to get at the store. Luckily, this recipe only requires a few items, which makes shopping a lot easier. And, if you’re like those Mormon families with well-stocked pantries, you may even have some of those ingredients already on hand.

The most essential element of the recipe is, of course, the potatoes. In this recipe, they take the form of potatoes cut into small 1-inch pieces or frozen hash browns. The choice is yours, depending on budget and availability. “For ease and simplicity, I used frozen hash browns,” says Dalton, “but you can also use potatoes cut into small pieces.” You will also need a can of cream of chicken soup, sour cream, grated cheddar cheese and melted butter.

The rest of the items on your list are spices and ingredients needed for the crispy topping. These include onion powder, garlic powder, pepper and salt. For the filling, you’ll need a few cups of corn flakes (the queen’s favorite, by the way). For the uninitiated, this ingredient may seem strange, but trust us: it tastes fantastic. And if you’re unsure or just don’t have corn flakes ready, you can make a quick substitution. “If you don’t have cornflakes, you could be mean and crush potato chips or use breadcrumbs like panko,” shares Dalton.
