    These are well known as “funeral potatoes” in our church (LDS). Every funeral has pans of them along with ham and misc. I just decided to start making them for family dinners. Why should we do without? I love them. :)

    I make almost this same exact recipe except use green onions and garlic instead of onion. We call them “heart attack potatoes”. So yummy!

    Do you use 2 cups of crushed corn flakes or 2 cups of corn flakes that are then crushed?

      Two cups of crushed corn flakes. Crush them first, then measure. Great question! Let me know if you run into any more, I’m happy to help!

    Do you need to thaw the frozen potatoes first?

    So this recepie has been in my family for over 30 years, but with one alteration with I highly suggest…use Ritz crackers instead of cornflakes…it really adds that extra wow!
    P.S. Love your blog!

        That’s what I figured but I know there are a couple of other kinds too so I thought I’d make sure. Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. I’m making these for Easter dinner tomorrow. :)

    Only getting part of the recipe, cut off top to bottom. Would really like to try this recipe. Can this be fixed?

    Wow, I haven’t thought of these forever! We called them fabulous potatoes when I was growing up – and they sure are! Thanks for reminding me of them. Gonna have to whip some up this weekend!
