If you've heard of this classic dish before, then you can just skip right to the recipe. Seriously, why waste time reading about funeral potatoes when you could be making (and eating!) them?

If you're not familiar, then we are very excited to introduce you!

These Classic Funeral Potatoes are our version of a dish that's a common sympathy meal, especially in the American west and in Mormon communities. However, this comfort food classic has also become popular for many other occasions, such as potlucks, holidays, and family dinners.

Funeral potatoes are basically a cheesy potato casserole. They're topped with some kind of crunchy, buttery topping. We're using corn flakes here, but crackers or potato chips are also common. It's a comforting meal that travels well, making it the perfect dish to bring to someone in need of a good meal.

You can learn more about the origins of this recipe here!

I've never had funeral potatoes before, but they sound delicious. How can you go wrong with cheese and potatoes? The corn flake topping is something I wouldn't have thought of, but I love the idea.

I love comforting casseroles like this. The cheesy potatoes and crunchy corn flake topping are so delicious!

My dad makes this recipe around the holidays and my entire family looks forward to it! It's fast and easy and everyone is always fighting over the last crumb!

This is one of my family's favorite side dishes; my mom makes funeral potatoes whenever we have ham. The corn flake topping is the best part!


Funeral potatoes? I have never heard of a dish referred to as this before. This looks really delicious and surely cant only be served at a funeral of all things? I am very interested in reading the history behind these potatoes and how they came to be called this name.
