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.

  • I make something very similar at the holidays and I love it. It's total comfort food. I don't add onions to mine but that sounds really good! Will try that next time!
    • Hahaha...it might just be a Mormon thing ;-) Every Mormon funeral has funeral potatoes! I think yummy potatoes sounds much better! lol
    • I don't have any on hand to check right now :) but it is just the standard size from the grocery store. Not extra big our anything :)
  • We call this Hashbrown Casserole in my neck of the woods (The Maritimes, Canada) and this recipe is very similar with the exception of the type of cheese. I usually use sharp cheddar so I will have to try it with the Monteray Jack. I will also sometimes add cooked chicken to make it a complete meal.
  • In our house there called Company Potato Casserole. Oh never added chicken monterey jack cheese. Usually it's cheddar.
