Here is a super common but super delicious recipe for Funeral Potatoes. EVERYONE has a recipe for funeral potatoes and this is the one my family has been making year after year. Whether it’s for Easter or Christmas, we devour this classic potato casserole. 🙂 Lots of butter and unhealthy things up in these potatoes, so I make these only a few times a year, but when I do, people go crazy for them! They are so darn good (and easy too!)
Potatoes aren’t just for funerals anymore 😉
How to make Funeral Potatoes:
Those frozen hash browns and a few cans of condensed soup are the easiest base to this amazing potato dish! Only a few quick minutes of prep before a long oven bake.
- Melt salted butter in a skillet and saute onions until browned.
- In a large bowl, stir frozen hash browns together with melted butter, cream of chicken soup, sour cream, cheddar cheese, salt, and pepper.

- Sprinkle corn flakes over potato mixture, cover with foil and bake 40-45 minutes.
- Serve warm.
