Cheese Potatoes

This recipe comes from one of my neighbors. This is what would be my version of what is known in Utah as Funeral Potatoes or in other parts of the US, I have learned it is known as Party Potatoes. I love to serve these potatoes with ham. This is definitely a family favorite. The picture I have is a half a recipe in a 8×8 inch dish. I usually make a whole recipe, but divide it into two 8 x 8 dishes. Then I cook one and refrigerate one for another meal in the next couple of days. The 8 x 8 amount is perfect for my family of 5.

Cheese Potatoes

8 to 10 medium potatoes
2 cans of cream of chicken soup
1 cup sour cream
2 cups grated cheddar cheese
1 small onion, diced
1/4 cup butter

Peel potatoes and boil in water until tender, approximately 15-20 minutes. In another pan, cook onion in butter until tender. Drain potatoes and cut into small pieces. Mix potatoes, onion, and butter, with remaining ingredients. Pour into 9×13 pan. Cover with foil and bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees.

  • Laura,

    Have you ever tried these in a crock pot? I would love to take them to a work potluck but I go in early and would need some way to keep them warm until lunch time. I wonder if I could cook them in the crock pot or would I be able to cook like normal the night before and then dump them into a crock pot the day of.

  • Made these to go with a ham tonight. LOVED THEM!!!! Hubby said "you can make those anytime you want." Thanks!!!

  • I make these with (defrosted) frozen hash browns — much easier!

  • My Cheese Potato recipe is almost the exact same, except the one I have calls for crushed cornflakes on top. The funny thing is, I got this recipe from my mother-in-law and we’re from NY. When I moved out here, and made them for a friend from southern utah she was like “Oh, funeral potatoes”. They are by far my favorite side dish.

  • I love these potatoes! I haven’t made them in a while…I sometimes put crushed potato chips (overkill?) on them or crushed cornflakes (not as popular as the chips with the kids!)Love your blog!

  • Oh potatoes and cheese, how I love thee.

  • These look delicious! I think my kids would actually eat these!
