Funeral Potatoes

So I can hear you asking, “What exactly are Funeral Potatoes”? They are a very yummy potato casserole that is shared with family, friends and neighbors when someone passes. It is very popular in the south. This Potato Casserole is a delicious combination of hash browns and creamy, cheesy goodness. The best part is there are never any leftovers. Oh wait! That is a bad thing. If you are making these as a casserole share, you better make two. One to share and one to keep.

Funeral Potatoes aka Southern Hash Brown Casserole
350 degree oven for 1-1 1/2 hours.

1 pkg. frozen hash brown potatoes (2 lbs.), thawed
2 c shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 c melted butter
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 small onion (chopped)
1 can 10 ¾ oz. cream soup (cream of chicken or cream of mushroom work very well)
1 cup sour cream
2 cups crushed corn flakes
1/4 cup melted butter


Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Thaw hash browns (or use refrigerator style hash browns).

In a large bowl, mix together hash browns, cheddar cheese, ½ cup melted butter, salt, onion, soup, and sour cream.

Stir until evenly mixed.

Spray a 9 x 11 or 9 x 13 inch pan or casserole dish with Pam or lightly grease the dish. This helps on clean up.
Pour mixture from bowl into pan and spread evenly with a spoon. Do not pack down tightly.
In a small bowl, mix together Corn Flakes and ¼ cup melted butter. Mix together and spread on top of casserole.

Place in preheated oven for one hour.    Until top is a golden crispy brown.   Remove from oven and let cool 10 minutes before serving,

  • Why not try adding some chives or crumbled bacon
  • Use your favorite cream of soup, chicken, mushroom, celery or potato
  • Don’t have cornflakes, top with buttered bread crumbs or crushed Ritz crackers or crushed Potato Chips
