I’ve tried/made/had several versions of funeral potatoes, I have never had one with corn flakes added to the top.

My mother in-law is from New York and makes these. She has always called them Company Potatoes. She uses Potatoes O’Brien though so you have that extra taste of the onions and peppers.

I was shocked as I read ‘‘funeral potatoes’’ and interested at the same time.
After checking up the article, I think it’s really delicious!
‘Good people are those who create good food’’

They are delicious. We have these with any special dinner at my in-laws. I also make them at times when we have guests. Beware though, they get lava hot and don’t cool quickly.
