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


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.

You poor Utah Mormons, always getting stuck with the Jell-O Salads and weird casseroles. I have yet to have funeral potatoes but they are probably one of the only Mormon Utah dishes I'd try. I have to say I was in quite the shock when I left my ward in California, where we'd serve things like baked chicken, spaghetti, salad bars, etc... at our meetings, only to be greeted by 20 different Jell-O molds when I moved to Salt Lake.

Good times.

I'll never eat another Jell-O dish as long as I live.
