Hash Brown Casserole (aka Funeral Potatoes) is a comforting side dish that everybody loves! This Midwest favorite is popular at potlucks.

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 45 minutes
Total Time 1 hour


  • 1 package (2 pounds) frozen hash brown potatoes, thawed
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 can (10.5 oz.) condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted
  • 1 container (8 oz.) sour cream
  • 1/2 cup onions, finely chopped
  • 2 cups Cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 cups crushed cornflakes cereal
  • 1/4 cup melted butter


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the hash browns, 1/2-cup melted butter, cream of chicken soup, sour cream, chopped onion, Cheddar cheese, salt and pepper. Spread the mixture into a 9x13-inch casserole dish.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine the cornflakes with 1/4-cup melted butter. Sprinkle the cornflake mixture over the top of the casserole.
  4. Bake uncovered in preheated oven for 45 minutes or until the potatoes are cooked through and the casserole is hot.


  • Make this casserole a main dish by adding about one pound of cooked and crumbled ground beef, cooked and crumbled breakfast sausage, ham cubes, or the protein of your choice.
  • Sometimes I like to add bell peppers and onions - or to make my life even easier; I buy the frozen bag of Southern-Style O'Brien potatoes.
  • You can use any kind of crumbled crackers (such as Ritz or other types of buttery crackers) in place of the cornflakes. I've heard panko breadcrumbs are good, too.
  • You can prepare this recipe in a slow cooker if you prefer! Combine the hash browns, 1/2-cup butter, condensed soup, sour cream, onion, cheese, salt, and pepper in a large bowl and then transfer the mixture to a greased 5-quart or larger slow cooker. Combine the cornflakes with the 1/4-cup butter and sprinkle the cornflake mixture over the potato mixture. Cover and cook on HIGH for 1-1/2 to 2 hours or on LOW for 3-4 hours or until the casserole reaches an internal temperature of 165°F near the center and the edges are bubbly.
