    Default Potato Casserole with Lays chips

    My son and I the last couple weeks have been going through my grandmother's cook books. Both my departed grandma and the one still living (bless her she's turning 97 this summer!) and we found this little gem that has to be my all time favorite potato recipe. Grandma lists it, and we've always called it, simply the Potato Casserole. To find the numerous variations of this online look up "Mormon Funeral Potatoes". Not sure how it got that name, no one in the Mormon community i grew up in took these for funerals.


    Ingredients -
    2 lbs frozen hashbrowns (Thawed)
    1/2 cup butter
    2 cans cream of chicken soup
    8 oz sour cream
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 medium onion (chopped)
    1 Tbsp butter
    16 oz (2 cups) mild cheddar cheese (grated)
    Lays Orginial potato chips (crushed)

    Directions -
    Preheat oven to 350 F

    In a medium sauce pan, saute the onions in the 1 Tbsp butter until translucent.

    Mix all ingredients except the potato chips in a large bowl.

    Spray a cake pan (or 9x13 baking dish) with non-stick spray, the spread the mixture evenly in the pan.

    Top with the crushed tater chips.

    Bake for about 45 minutes, until heated through and starting to bubble.

    When grandma would make this she would put an even layer of crushed chips on the top so you couldn't see the tater mixture under it.

    Always a favorite! A friend of mine used to make it, called it simply "funeral potatoes". Thanks for sharing your family recipe.
    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    Use it up, Wear it out,
    Make it do, Or do without. ~unknown

    Because we, the people, have the power to build a better future. KH
