Cheesy Potato Casserole

From the book “Being Dead is No Excuse; The Official Southern Ladies Guide to Hosting the Perfect Funeral” by Gayden Metcalfe and Charoltte Hays.  It is a hilarious book with great stories and fantastic southern recipes.

This is a great potato casserole. It is not for those people on a diet!

  1. Love these. They are always a crowd pleaser. I've got some in the oven right now for my church lunch. Its a Baptist church, so I guess I'll have to come up with a new name for them 😉

  2. I love these! Around my neck of the woods we call them funeral potatoes. And I top mine with crushed croutons, since I almost never have cornflakes around.
