Funeral Potatoes…everyone has a recipe for this popular casserole! Here is my creamy, cheesy and oniony version!
Here is a super common but super delicious none the less side dish recipe for Funeral Potatoes. EVERYONE has a recipe for funeral potatoes and this is mine 🙂 Lots of butter and unhealthy things up in this recipe, so I make these about once a year. But every time I make them, I am reminded just how darn good they are!
And incase you’re wondering, corn flakes aren’t the only thing to top this casserole with! Here are some other tasty and convenient options:
Good Casserole Toppings
- Corn flakes
- Crushed Ritz Crackers
- Crushed Potato Chips
- French Fried Onions
- Bread crumbs tossed in butter
- Grated Cheese
- Cheese AND Bacon 😉
- Crushed Soda Crackers
- Tortilla Strips
- Pretty much anything light and crunchy
I prefer my Funeral Potatoes with french fried onions, but I was fresh out, so I used corn flakes (classic). Don’t be afraid to use what you have in your pantry.
Anyways, take a peek at my recipe and see how yours varies. And if you want a completely homemade version of this, check out my Cheesy Bacon version here.
Have a wonderful weekend, friends!!
