Easy Cheesy Potatoes

I grew up eating these cheesy potatoes as a side dish, usually at Easter and Christmas along with ham. I always thought it was funny that my mom called them “funeral potatoes” but never questioned it until one day I took a phone message from someone wondering if she could bring “funeral potatoes” to an upcoming after-funeral luncheon. These gooey, cheesy “funeral potatoes” traditionally served at holidays and funeral luncheons make a tasty side dish anytime of the year, though too much of the rich dish and you may be in line for ¬†your own funeral :).
