If you’ve ever been to a funeral, you’ve probably had those cheesy, creamy potatoes served in a casserole dish with a crunchy coating on top.
In parts of the West and Midwest, they are known as “funeral potatoes” — since they are commonly served at gatherings after a funeral.
They are also served at church gatherings, holidays, graduation parties, and other occasions.
Back in 2016, Augason Farms started selling a prepackaged kit with all the ingredients to make “Funeral Potatoes”. Apparently, they are buying Facebook ads because people are losing their minds over the name.
