These Creamy Hash Browns are to die for potatoes! I’ve also heard them called “Funeral Potatoes” as well. I’ve been making these for years for both my family and at the Bed and Breakfast Inn we had for 17 years. Everyone loves them! My daughter’s mother-in-law makes them too, but has a little bit of a different recipe, and hers has a corn flake topping on them.

This is an easy recipe and will serve about 12, but when I had the B&B I made them in small individual ramekins and it made about 16 of those. I would use as many as I needed and would cover them individually and freeze them and pull them out the day before and let them thaw in the fridge, then bake them in the morning.
