Funeral Potatoes
After researching my taste buds of the one's that I really liked, this recipe is it or very close. I would add my hot link sausages.

"Also called "Ward Party Potatoes," "Christmas Potatoes," "Potato Casserole" I'm sure many other names - but the most famous is Funeral Potatoes because it is often served at funerals and Church parties in Utah. "

Ingredients:
# 6 cups diced potatoes*
# 1 can (10 ¾ oz.) cond. cream chicken soup
# 1/2 soup can milk
# 1 cup sour cream
# 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated
# 1/4 cup grated onion (optional) **
# salt and pepper to taste
# 3 tablespoons butter, melted
# 3/4 cup corn flake crumbs

Method:
Cook fresh potatoes or thaw frozen potatoes (see *note below). Place potatoes in a 2-3 quart casserole dish or a 9x13 cake pan.

Combine soup, milk, sour cream, cheese, and onion (see **note below) and salt and pepper to taste. If a saucier dish is desired, add 2-3 tablespoons additional milk. Mix well. Spread sauce over potatoes.

Melt butter and combine with corn flake crumbs. Sprinkle crumbs over casserole. Bake uncovered at 350 F for 30-45 minutes or until hot and bubbly throughout.

Notes:

* Use approximately 6-8 peeled, diced, and cooked fresh potatoes; or approximately 2 pounds frozen, southern style, diced hash browns (not shredded). ** Use 1 tablespoon dried onion or sauté 1/4 cup fresh chopped onion in 1 tablespoon butter until transparent.

There are probably as many variations in how to make this dish, as there are names for it. Whatever you call it (or how you make it) it is tasty dish, which is often served with ham and green beans. Recipe serves approximately 8.

Re: Funeral Potatoes
When the Mrs. and I were doing the D.O. thing we won a competition and those were our veggie dish. We use red onions for additional color. Still like the things.
We'd hold back the flakes 'til serving cuz they get soggy during the cook with the d.o. lid on.
