Potato Casserole AKA Funeral Potatoes

Funeral Potatoes. Awesome comfort food. www.ourlifeinspired.com

If you live in Utah or Idaho you have probably heard of Funeral Potatoes.  These are sooooo good.  One of my favorite recipes.  In fact growing up my Mom would tell me I better marry a potato farmer because I love potatoes so much.  These are a creamy cheesy potato goodness.  The reason they have been nick named Funeral potatoes is because when there is a funeral in the community the Relief society ladies will supply a dinner for the grieving family and these potatoes are a great comfort food usually served with Ham and a green salad and probable some kind of Jello.  You can’t have a LDS dinner without jello.  Also everyone in Utah/Idaho has their own version of this awesome dish. This one is definitely a keeper.  My family will devour the whole pan.
