You can't get more quirky or exotic than that! This is a famous dish among Utah Mormons (I am an Ex-Mormon, thank-you-very-much, and an agnostic just for the record). It got the name "funeral potatoes" because along with the endlessly nasty Jello salads, this is a favorite potluck dish at Mormon after-funeral gatherings beneath the basketball hoop (Mormons, ex-Mormons and Utahns will get this). It's actually quite a tasty dish, but it has like a bajillion calories! Enjoy!! Angel

Mormon Funeral Potatoes
Time 55 minutes
Serves 12

Ingredients:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

32 oz bag of frozen shredded hash browns
2 (10 3/4 oz) cans Cream of Chicken Soup
2 cups Sour Cream
1 1/2 cup grated Cheddar Cheese (I like to use sharp Cheddar Cheese)
1/2 cup melted butter or margarine
1/2 c. chopped onion
2 cups finely crushed Corn Flakes or potato chips
2 Tbs butter or margarine melted

How to make it:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Grease 9x13 baking dish and preheat oven to 350
In large bowl combine soups, sour cream, cheese, onions, and the 1/2 cup of melted butter.
Gently fold hash browns into mixture.
Pour mixture into pan.
Combine crushed corn flakes and the 2 Tbs. of melted butter and sprinkle on top of potato mixture.
Bake for 30 minutes.

*If wanting to, you can use cubed potatoes instead of hash browns but you will need to increase baking time to 55 minutes.

NOTE: Highly addictive! Keep away from Lerxst!! Wink

That sounds Good ! Nice and crunchy.Smile
This looks very good, despite the name. (Funeral potatoes? How about Cremation Cookies next? Burial Blintzes? OK, OK, I'll stop.)

Looks like it can be pretty easily modified since I very seldom cook for 12. Safetygirl2112, I see that you can use either Corn Flakes or potato chips. Chips are usually VERY salty. Which way do you prefer? The Corn Flakes or potato chips?
The title of this thread caught my interest, lol

Sounds tasty, of course, I love potatoes! I'll have to give this a try soon.
Safteygirl yours has a much more eye catching name as Bagel says. It's pretty much the same recipe as mine (cheese hashbrown casserole), but your name make everyone wonder Huh?? Smile
old honda rider, I prefer potato chips (redundant as that may sound) but then I like salt.

A good dessert is Missionary Salad (so easy a 18-19 year-old Mormon missionary can make it!)

------------

Missionary Salad

Pint heavy whipping cream
sugar to taste

Beat until peaks form and it looks more like cool whip than milk

Add any or all of below and fold in gently:

Cut up bananas
Diced apples
Pineapple chunks or bits
Mandarin oranges
Grapes (cut in half to avoid choke hazard for children/elderly)
Maraschino cherries (see above)
small marshmellows
shredded coconut (I don't add this cuz I don't like it)
-----------------

It's a delightful dessert and has a considerably-less maudlin moniker! Tongue

I used to make this as a youngster, and used cool whip. Even easier for a kid!

You guys are such good cooks ! MMMMM
We have the same recipe round Central Smellinois, but call them (boringly, admitted) Party Potatoes. When I was younger, they could have been Lutheran Last Rite Potatoes. What now...Atheist Entombment Potatoes? I'll stick with your title!
