Slow Cooker Funeral Potatoes


This delicious dish known as 'funeral potatoes' is easy to make. I topped mine with more cheese and sliced green onions. A great addition to this would be bacon bits, making it taste almost like a fully loaded baked potato.

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 1 cup chopped onion

  • 1 (20 ounce) package refrigerated hash browns (such as Simply Potatoes®)

  • 1 (10.5 ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup

  • 2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese, divided

  • 1 cup sour cream

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 teaspoon salt, or more to taste

  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or more to taste

  • 1 tablespoon sliced green onions, or to taste


  1. Line a slow cooker with a slow cooker liner or spray with cooking spray.

  2. Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat and cook onion until soft and translucent, 5 to 6 minutes.

  3. Place onion, hash browns, mushroom soup, 1 1/2 cups Cheddar cheese, sour cream, garlic powder, salt, and pepper in the slow cooker. Stir until well combined.

  4. Cook on High until hash browns are tender, 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Top with remaining 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese and cook until cheese is melted, 15 to 20 minutes. Top with green onions.

Cook's Note:

For an added kick of spice, replace 3/4 cup Cheddar cheese with jalapeno Jack cheese.
