Here is another version of "Funeral Potatoes".

Jiffy Potatoes a.k.a. Funeral Potatoes

Gather these ingredients:

• 2 lb bag of Frozen Hash browns
• 1 can Cream of Potato Soup
• 1 can Cream of Celery Soup
• 1 can Cheddar Cheese Soup
• 1 small carton (8 oz) of Sour Cream
• 1 chopped Onion (optional)
• 2 cups of Buttered Bread Crumbs

Follow these directions:

1. Mix all the soups together in a large bowl.
2. Stir in the sour cream and onions.
3. Fold in frozen hash browns.
4. Put in 9x13 greased baking pan, top with buttered bread crumbs.
5. Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour, 15 minutes.

Notes :
If you don’t have a package of bread crumbs you can make your own.
To make the bread crumbs, break 3 pieces of bread into small pieces and put into a small bowl. Melt 4 tablespoons of butter and poured it over the crumbs. Using a fork, mix it around to make sure that all the bread was coated with the melted butter.

No bread or bread crumbs? Not to worry- crush up some soda crackers and mix them with the melted butter.

These are great to make to take to a potluck where you can enjoy time with family and friends.
