Funeral Potatoes Recipe

funeral-potatoes-pinYou guys. Funeral potatoes! Have you had them? Have you heard of them? If you aren’t familiar, I know the name sounds kind of funny. But these potatoes were a part of my upbringing. They are traditionally served at funerals in Utah because they are the ULTIMATE comfort food. They are also served at Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, you know. Just whenever you have a big family dinner and need a delicious, decadent side dish.

I’m so excited to finally be sharing my recipe, I’ve been meaning to for like three years… but it’s hard to take pictures when they disappear so fast. I made these for Thanksgiving with intentions to photograph them but they really were gone in 60 seconds, so I had to re-make them JUST so I could share them here. So now that you know all of the effort I went to, you definitely need to try them!
