Yummy Potatoes (aka, Funeral Potatoes)

These are the BEST funeral potatoes you'll ever eat. IT's an amazing potato side dish that is super addicting.

For as long as I can remember, my mom has made a recipe that was called “yummy potatoes.” It wasn’t until I was in my teens that I realized most people referred to similar recipes as funeral potatoes. I feel like I’ve seen a million different recipes for these (there’s even a book about them) — everyone changes it up a little bit — but my mom’s are definitely my favorite.

These are a fun thing to serve at Thanksgiving or Christmas, because you can easily prepare them the night before, and really don’t require a whole lot of effort. And, they are super addictive. In fact, I feel like the most accurate name for these would be crack potatoes. Because you really can’t have just one serving.

It’s full of dairy and other things that a person with a lactose intolerance shouldn’t have (though it can easily be adapted to be lactose free!) but it’s so good, that I don’t really care! I love eating these with BBQ pork roast and my quick sweet dinner rolls, and mopping up the extra juices with the potatoes.
