CHEESY FUNERAL POTATOES – If you’ve ever spent any time in Utah, it’s very likely you’ve heard of funeral potatoes. Originating as a popular dish that people would bring to funeral luncheons, these creamy and crunchy potatoes gained popularity, and now no get-together is complete without them! While traditional versions call for hash browns, we decided to try out mashed potatoes, along with a serious amount of cheese and a buttery corn flake topping, and we were thrilled with the results!
CHEESY FUNERAL POTATOES
— 2 (10 oz (ca. 378 g).) cans cream of chicken soup
— 4 cups potatoes, cooked and mashed
— 2 cups cheddar cheese, grated
— 1 1/2 cups corn flakes
— 1 cup sour cream
— 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
— Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 350º F.
In a large bowl, stir cream of chicken soup and sour cream into mashed potatoes.
Mix in cheddar cheese, then season generously with salt and pepper.
In a separate bowl, toss corn flakes with melted butter until they’re all evenly coated.
Transfer potatoes to a 9×13-inch baking dish and cover with corn flakes.
Place the baking dish in the oven and bake for 45 minutes, or until corn flakes are golden brown.
Remove from oven and serve hot.
