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.
