Cheesy Potatoes or Slow Cooker Funeral Potatoes?
I have heard this recipe called both of these before. Essentially this is a cheesy potato casserole but I believe people started calling them funeral potatoes but it’s the perfect pot luck dish because everyone loves them.
Whatever you call them, they are not only easy to make but delicious too! They are definitely a crowd please at family dinners, holidays and pot lucks too.
You’ll need a crock pot for this recipe!
It allows you to cook your favorite casseroles without heating up your kitchen. Or you can make your favorite casseroles in the oven, and then keep them warm in the crock pot making this perfect for pot lucks and parties!
I have used mine a few times and I know I’ll be using them a lot in my future. However, you don’t need a casserole crock pot to make this recipe.
I made mine in a traditional 6 quart crock pot and it worked perfectly! You can also double this recipe and it’ll still fit in a 6 quart crock pot.
- Frozen Hash Brown Potatoes (either shredded or diced works but I used shredded for this recipe)
- Cream of Chicken Soup
- Shredded Cheddar Cheese
- Sour Cream

How to make crockpot cheesy potatoes:
You are not going to be believe how easy it is to make this easy crock pot potato side dish recipe.
First spray the inside of a 6 quart crock pot with nonstick spray. This will make the clean up very easy and will make serving these cheesy potatoes even easier.
Next take your frozen hash browns and break them up in the bag. This is easier to do while they’re in the bag and helps them cook more thoroughly once they’re added to the slow cooker.
Then in a medium size mixing bowl, whisk together the cream of chicken soup, milk and sour cream.
Next stir in the hash browns, onions and 1 cup of the cheese. Use a large spoon instead of a whisk to stir these ingredients in so that the hash browns don’t turn to mush when mixing them in.
After all the ingredients are combined, pour this mixture into the crock pot. Then top with the remaining cheese. This is what gives the casserole that nice cheesy top, so don’t skip this step! If you’re worried about it being too cheesy then just use 1/2 cup of cheese to top the casserole.
Cover the crock pot and cook on low for 4-5 hours or for 2-3 hours on high until the potatoes are tender.
After the cooking time, serve with a large spoon and enjoy!
Cheesy potato recipe tips:
I usually use frozen potatoes for this recipe because it’s convenient and frozen hash brown potatoes are pretty inexpensive. However, you can use fresh potatoes for this recipe if you prefer.
Also, you can make this a complete meal but staring in cooked shredded chicken or browned ground beef or sausage. I have done this a few time and they alway turn out great!
Plus staring in green chilis or diced peppers would be delicious in this recipe to give this cheesy potato casserole a spicy kick!
