These traditional funeral potatoes are cheesy creamy comfort food.
Funeral potatoes get their unique name from being a crowd-pleasing casserole served as a side dish at after-funeral luncheons. Some say that this originated with the Mormans, however, others disagree.
Wherever and however they came to be they are delicious.
Oh, and just so you know, these are not just for funerals. Funeral potatoes are great for holiday menus as well as for a Sunday brunch.
