Slow-Cooker Funeral Potatoes

 funeral potatoes

I’ve never had much luck finding a good recipe for cheesy funeral potatoes. But honestly, I think it’s because I try to go the fancy route and the taste I’m familiar with is the old-school potluck variety. So, as much as it pained me, this time I used a recipe that used canned soup. And it turned out awesome!

If you were like me this last Easter Sunday, your oven was occupied by a large ham. This leaves no room for cheesy potatoes. Which is why this recipe is so perfect… slow cooker time!

Now the recipe said to cook this on low for 4-5 hours. After about 3 hours mine didn’t look like it was even starting to brown on top so I bumped it up to high for the last hour or so. So adjust your time accordingly. I think 4-5 hours on low wouldn’t be enough. Of course if you’re filthy rich and have 2 ovens, you can always bake this too! (There are baking instructions included at the bottom of the original recipe).

    Why are the potatoes called funeral potatoes?

      Well at least around these parts, they show up at funeral luncheons a lot. A little morbid I guess, but true!

    Yum! I’ve only ever made them in the oven and usually for brunch. Had no idea they were called funeral potatoes either! Also, even non-filthy rich people can have two ovens, honey. Get a second one, it will change your life! 😉

      Ha ha yeah I know lots of poor people with double ovens too. I was just kidding. 😀
