CHEESY HASHBROWN POTATO CASSEROLE {FUNERAL POTATOES} RECIPE

This Cheesy Hashbrown Potato Casserole (or "Funeral Potatoes" as we call it in Utah) is full of melted cheese and so creamy. It also makes an easy freezer meal- divide the recipe in half and freeze one half for another day.

  • Medium Bowl

Ingredients

  • 32 ounces Frozen shredded Hashbrowns 1 bag, divided
  • 21.50 ounces cream of chicken soup 2 (10.75 ounce) cans
  • 2 cups sour cream

Notes

To freeze this dish, simply prepare the recipe as directed. I like to use an aluminum pan when I am making freezer meals.
  • Right before you bake it, cover with aluminum foil tightly and place in the freezer. It should be good for up to 30 days.
  • Remove it from the freezer 24 hours before you want to bake it and stick it in the fridge to thaw. Bake as directed.
