Crock Pot Funeral Potatoes

I love ‘funeral’ potatoes.  I had this slow cooker version at a reception and it was delicious.  Use a liner for easy clean-up.

Ingredients:

  • ½ yellow onion, minced
  • ½ cube butter
  • 1 can cream of mushroom
  • 1 can cream of chicken
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 8 oz. sour cream
  • 3 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 tsp. garlic salt
  • 32 oz. frozen hash browns

Directions:

Sauté minced onion in butter in large pan.

Strain soups before adding them if you do not want bits of mushroom or chicken in your potatoes.

Add strained soups, milk, sour cream and 2 cups of shredded cheese to minced onion. Heat on medium high heat until cheese is melted and well blended. Sprinkle garlic salt in and mix well using a whisk.

Add frozen potatoes and stir until they are covered in soup mixture.

Put in crock pot for 4 – 4 ½ hours on high, stir every 30 minutes or they will burn on the bottom and edges.

15-20 min before you serve, sprinkle the last cup of cheddar cheese on top to melt.

Christmas Morning Breakfast Casserole

Christmas brunch

I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year. –Charles Dickens

This was so good and so easy.  I made this Christmas morning and all of us gobbled it up.   Thanks to Sara for the lovely fruit salad we had with it.  About 12 servings.

Ingredients

  • 2 small cans chopped green chilies
  • 1 large bag of shredded hash browns (32 oz bag), thawed
  • 1 Tablespoon dried onion flakes
  • 1 Tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 medium container (16 ounces) cottage cheese (2 cups)
  • 1/2 to 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 4-6 cups grated cheddar cheese
  • 2 packages Jimmy Dean sausage
  • 1 pound bacon
  • 12 eggs
Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with foil. Arrange bacon slices on the foil and place the baking sheet on the center rack.  Cook for about 15 minutes or until done.  Drain fat, pat bacon with paper towel to remove excess fat.
  2. While bacon is cooking, crumble your two packages of Jimmy Dean’s sausage in a fry pan and cook.  Drain grain and rinse excess fat from sausage in a strainer under hot water. 
  3. Open 2 small cans of green chilies and dump contents into a bowl.  
  4. Add the dried onion flakes and cottage cheese to the chilies and stir together.  (I was about a cup shy on the cottage cheese so I added a cup of sour cream to make up for it).   Sprinkle about a tablespoon of onion powder over the mix and stir.
  5. Add 4-6 cups grated cheese and about a 1/2 cup of sour cream and mix all this together, then add crumbled sausage and stir together.  
  6. Add bag of hash browns to the mix and combined thoroughly.
  7. Spoon this mixture into your lightly greased casserole dish.
  8. Mix 12 eggs together with a fork in a separate bowl and then pour them over the top of the casserole.
  9.  I poured about a 1/2 cup of milk over the top of the casserole to help moisten it at this point.  
  10. Sprinkle crumbled bacon over the top.
  11. Bake at 350 degrees uncovered for about 50-60 minutes until lightly browned on top or until bubbly around the edges.
