There are certain dishes that have to be made on Thanksgiving in our family. Some of those include my aunt’s super yummy Ham, my mom’s rolls, and several side dishes, including Funeral Potatoes (also known as Hashed Brown Cheese Casserole). Yes, we do have regular Mashed Potatoes as well (recipe to come later this week), but we always have a least to pans of Funeral Potatoes. Usually one has onions in it, and the other one does not (for us picky folk).
This Funeral Potatoes Recipe (and not really sure why it’s called that) is one that we have been making for as long as I can remember. It is so yummy and so great to include in the Thanksgiving meal, even though we make this all year long.
I’m not going to lie… I sometimes crave these more than the regular Mashed Potatoes, BUT having said that I usually have both on Thanksgiving, because I’m just a Potato Lover!!
