Bacon-Topped Funeral Potatoes are sure to be a hit with anyone who tries them! This comforting cheesy potato casserole is topped with bacon and loaded with cheese. Cheddar, Monterrey jack, and smoked mozzarella cheese makes these funeral potatoes something truly special. A rich cream sauce flavored with dry mustard and paprika is poured over the diced potatoes and cheese.

Once the cheesy potato casserole has been baked to perfection, top the casserole with cooked bacon and sliced scallions for a deliciously cheesy experience. Everyone will be asking for this cheesy potato recipe!

What are funeral potatoes?

Funeral potatoes is another name for a cheesy potato casserole that originated in the Western United States and is especially popular amongst Mormons and Southerners. The recipe is known as “funeral potatoes” because it is a side dish that is commonly served at fellowships after funerals. Funeral potatoes are also served at potlucks and parties so they are sometimes called party potatoes or Mormon funeral potatoes.

why are they called "funeral" potatoes? ???

Hi autoinmate, "funeral" foods get their name from recipes that are typically served at funerals (and potlucks) to comfort those in need. - Natalie, Editor of AllFreeCasseroleRecipes
