This Slow Cooker Funeral Potatoes dish is one of those recipes that you just have to make for potlucks and big family dinners. It’s often called funeral potatoes or cheesy potatoes too. But seriously whatever you call it, it’s delicious. I had to stop myself from eating only these potatoes for dinner. The sharp cheddar give it the flavor dimension that it needs.Print

Delicious potato recipe,yummie,cheesy recipe!🧀👨🍳
So glad you liked it!
How much time would you estimate it would take in the slow cooker if I doubled the recipe? I am having a picnic on Labor Day and would like to make a double batch of these potatoes.
I would add an hour to the cooking time.
This sounds good. How long would you cook this for on low in the slow cooker? Thanks for any help you can give me.
Probably about 5 hours.
I make almost the same recipe but, since we like a Tex=Mex version, I add 1 cup of sour cream and 1 cup of prepared Nacho Cheese w/green chilies. Or, if I don’t have the Nacho Cheese, I open a small can (4 oz I think) of diced, green chilies, drain and mix them in. I also have to add 1/4 cup of dried, onion flakes for hubby.
We do love this dish.
this sounds fantastic!
What would you adjust the time for if I did it in the Instant Pot on the pressure cooker setting?
I wish I knew! I need to try this in the instant pot and find out.
Can this be made in the oven?
Sure, Bernice! Just place in a greased 9×13 pan and cook for an hour at 350 F.
