This Cheesy Potato Casserole, also known as funeral potatoes, is sure to please a crowd! I love the cheesy potatoes in every bite with the crunchy topping.
There are lots of different names for these potatoes.. in Utah they call them “funeral potatoes” because they are a staple for feeding large groups of people. But this recipe is far and above the best one I have had. They make a great side dish to any meal. Some like to add shredded onions to this dish, and you can feel free to do so, but I like the potatoes creamy without the added crunch of onions.
For as long as I can remember, we have always made this dish for Easter dinner. It goes perfectly with Easter ham! Sometimes we even cube the ham and add it straight to the potatoes and call it a meal! Whatever you decide to serve this with– you are going to love it!
