Day 194: Cheesy Potatoes

This recipe is a popular one where I live.  We normally call them funeral potatoes because they are usually served by our church women's group at funeral luncheons.  I've also heard them called Party Potatoes in other parts of the country.  Most of the time, we just call them "yummy".

Cheesy Potatoes
12" dutch oven

8-10 potatoes, boiled, peeled and cut into cubes
2 cans cream of chicken soup
1 cup sour cream
1 small onion, grated
1 soup can of milk
2 cups grated cheese
salt and pepper to taste

In a large bowl, mix the soup, sour cream, onion, milk, cheese and salt and pepper.  Add the potato cubes and toss to coat.  Place in your dutch oven and bake at 350° for about 30 minutes or until bubbly and heated through.  Use 1 1/2 rings on the top and 1 ring on the bottom.  Serves 10.

The Review

This is a standby recipe at our house.  Anytime there is a family potluck, we have these potatoes.  My boys will pile these 6 inches high on their plates and eat like they were starving to death.  You can top them with crushed potato chips or corn flakes, but we like them better without any toppings.  These are hard to grade.  They aren't anything really special, but they are good and we have them often.  I think they'll get a B+.


  1. Darlene and I served them at more funeral than I can think of, and they got served at Darlene's funeral to. I have not served them to Kat. My new wife (12Years now) but now I think I can, and will. Thanks for the reminder and the memories.

  2. They were party potatoes when I was in college in Iowa. I'd never seen them before, but I don't know if that's because they're not a "thing" in Texas, or if it's because my mother hates to cook and would never put that kind of effort into potatoes. I don't believe I've ever seen them down here, though, which is surprising since we like to put mushroom soup and cheese on everything else.

    I think the ones we had in college sometimes had a cornflake crust, or at least cornflake sprinkles, or something. (Sorry, this was a long time ago, my memory of exactly how cornflakes were involved has faded.) I'm not sure how that would work in a Dutch oven since the ones at school were baked in regular ovens.

  3. Just like everything else, these work perfectly in the dutch oven!
