Basic Funeral Potatoes


This funeral potatoes recipe is basic but good. It's up to you to make it gourmet. No Mormon funeral — or any get-together, for that matter — is complete without this dish and baked ham. You can use potato chips, tortilla chips, or even cornflakes for the topping. I like to use sour cream and onion potato chips.

1 9x13-inch casserole


  • 2 (10.5 ounce) cans cream of chicken soup

  • 1 pint sour cream

  • 1 ½ cups grated Cheddar cheese

  • ½ cup dehydrated onion flakes

  • 1 (30 ounce) package frozen shredded hash browns, thawed

  • 1 cup crushed potato chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Combine condensed soup, sour cream, Cheddar cheese, and onion flakes in a large bowl. Mix in hash browns until well combined. Pour into a 9x13-inch casserole dish. Sprinkle with potato chips.

  3. Bake uncovered in the preheated oven until cheese is melted and the top is crisp, about 45 minutes.


You can use mild, medium, or sharp Cheddar.

You can add cubed ham to make a satisfying main dish.

You can add herbs like oregano, basil, parsley, or even some garlic for extra flavor.
