Funeral Potatoes recipe



  • 1 1/2 cups cornflakes
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 2 (10.5 ounce) cans cream of chicken soup
  • 1 pint (2 cups) sour cream
  • 2 1/2 cups grated Cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1/2 cup dehydrated onion flakes
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 (30 ounce) package frozen shredded or diced hash browns, thawed
  • Chopped green onion (tops only - optional)


  1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter a 9 x 13 inch or comparable casserole.


  1. In a medium bowl, gently crush the cornflakes. Toss with the butter and set aside.


  1. Combine condensed soup, sour cream, 2 cups Cheddar cheese and onion flakes in a large bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Gently mix in hash browns until well combined. Pour into a 9 x 13 inch casserole dish.
  2. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese and cornflakes.
  3. Bake uncovered until cheese is melted and the top is crisp, about 45 minutes.
