Notes

  • This delicious dish is often called funeral potatoes. 
  • Use frozen hash browns, not thawed.
  • For less fat, use fat free or low fat sour cream.
  • Fresh onion or dried minced onion can be used.  Add to your preference. I typically use 1 tablespoon dried, minced onion or 1/2 - 1 cup diced onion.
  • I typically use shredded cheddar cheese but you can sub in your favorite type of shredded cheese to change things up.
  • Use anywhere from 1 to 2 cups shredded cheese, depending on how cheesy you like your crispy cheesy potato bake.
