Cheesy Potato Casserole is a crowdpleaser at any party or holiday gathering. This is a VERY simple, but SO delicious recipe for Funeral Potatoes that has been in my family for over 40 years. My mom makes this dish for most every family dinner and there’s never leftovers!

*Allow potatoes to thaw for about 20 minutes. They do not have to be completely thawed. You will just want them thawed enough so that you can stir them with other ingredients easily.
  • Storing leftovers. Place any leftover potato casserole in an airtight storage container in the refrigerator for up to about 5 days.
  • To reheat. Pop individual servings in the microwave and cook for 30 second intervals until it’s warm. You can also place the casserole dish in the oven at 325ºF. If using the oven, loosely cover with foil (since it has already been baked) and place the dish on the center rack for 15 to 25 minutes, until warmed through (the larger the serving, the longer the cook time).
  • Freezing. Place leftovers in an airtight freezer-safe storage container or a freezer-safe baggie in the freezer for up to 3 months. Let thaw overnight in the refrigerator before reheating.
