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 Cheesy Potato Casserole). Yes, we do have regular Mashed Potatoes as well (recipe to come later this week), but we always have at least two 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!! 😀MY OTHER RECIPES
If you’ve ever had these Cheesy Potatoes, then I’m sure you know just how yummy they really are. The best part is that you can add ingredients like bacon bits or even a few veggies to make them just how you’d like them. 🙂
