Laughing about those "mormon" recipes...like funeral potatoes...

Trying to cut and paste what I've found so the recipe may not come from the cook book pictured...but...

Funeral potatoes are funeral potatoes. I'm quite sure they originated in Utah and there are a million versions....this being one of them.

They are traditionally served at
gatherings after funerals
or "Ward dinners"
or big crowds (read: big mormon family gatherings)
with Ham, rolls, salads and of course Jello.

I just have to be amused by the Mormon kitchen grapevine (hotline)
....it's a marvelous network!!

Use approximately 6 cups diced potatoes (best if they are baked, cooled, peeled and diced)

1 can cr of chicken soup (or mushroom)
1 stick of butter melted
1 c sour cream
2 cups grated cheddar cheese
1/4 c. finely minced onion
salt & pepper to taste

add potatoes and place in a 9 x 13 baking dish (greased)
Bake at about 350 for 35 - 45 minutes uncovered

Traditionally they are topped with crushed corn flakes tossed in a little butter...adds a nice crunchy texture.

What's your favorite (mormon recipe)?
