Funeral Potatoes

This popular Utah comfort food is commonly brought to a post-funeral communal meal. The covered dish, or easy-to-reheat casserole, is a classic for potlucks and other large gatherings.

  • Yield: Serves 18 (serving size: 3/4 cup)
  • Total:1 Hour


  • 2 (10 3/4-ounce) cans condensed reduced-fat, reduced-sodium cream of chicken soup, undiluted
  • 6 ounces reduced-fat cheddar cheese, shredded (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 3/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pound frozen Southern-style hash brown potatoes (about 5 cups)
  • 5 cups fresh or frozen broccoli florets, thawed
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/2 cup panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)
  • 1/4 cup (1 ounce) grated fresh Parmesan cheese


1. Preheat oven to 350°.

2. Combine chicken soup and next 3 ingredients (through salt) in a large bowl. Add hash browns, broccoli, and onion, stirring to coat.

3. Spoon hash brown mixture into a 13 x 9-inch glass or ceramic baking dish lightly coated with cooking spray. Top with breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese. Bake at 350° for 50 minutes or until filling is bubbly and topping is browned.

Lighten Up

Keep it creamy & comforting

Rich cheese and sour cream keep this dish hearty and decadent. Some of the potatoes have been replaced with fiber-filled broccoli to bulk up the dish and reduce the calories. My secret for a crunchy topping that's lower in fat than potato chips? Breadcrumbs and a little Parmesan cheese.
