Recipe by Lubie

I'm not sure where they get their name, but they sure are tasty! (and they don't have to be served at funerals either!!)

My mom used to make this for us- so I loved it! I made a few minor adjustments...I used a mix of Monterrey Jack and Cheddar cheeses instead of longhorn as was recommended. I also used more like 3 cups of corn flakes and extra butter to make the topping (cause the crunchy top is the best part). I also used the frozen bagged hash browns with onions and peppers already in it since that is what I had on hand and it didn't really affect the flavor. Will make over and over and over again!!!
