Very forgiving recipe. They keep changing package sizes but this recipe doesn't seem to mind.

Top Review by Tinkerbell

My aunt makes funeral potatoes for family gatherings, and of course church happenings, but I'd never tried them until last year. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed them, despite the list of ingredients we don't normally use. I don't have her recipe though, so I chose to try this one out on Christmas day for a small, immediate family dinner. DH doesn't eat cheese, except in very rare exceptions, and cheddar is never one of those, so he didn't try this dish, but DS, DD and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Next time I think I'll reduce the amount of chicken soup slightly and try browning it all a little longer, as the crunchy bits were a favorite part of the dish. Thanks for sharing another great recipe, scotty's mom!
