FabuLESS Freezer Cooking: Funeral Potatoes

FUNERAL POTATOES

1 FAMILY
6 c. frozen grated potatoes


½ c. margarine
2 cans cream of chicken soup
1 ½ c grated cheddar cheese
¼ c very finely chopped onion
2 c sour cream
¾ c corn flakes
¼ c melted butter

6 FAMILIES
36 c frozen grated potatoes
3 c margarine (6 sticks)
12 cans (64.5 oz) cream of chicken soup

9 c. grated cheddar cheese
1 ½ c very finely chopped onion
12 c (6lbs) sour cream
4 ½ c corn flakes or Ritz crakers crushed
1 ½ c melted butter

TO FREEZE
Divide into 12 Ziploc Bags for 6 families and 2 for 1 family
Each Ziploc Bag Contains:
3 c. frozen grated potatoes
1/4 c. margarine
1 can cream of chicken soup
3/4 c grated cheddar cheese
1/8 c very finely chopped onion
1 c sour cream

It works really fast and easy to mix the item in a bag individually rather than using a few large bowls and having to disperse the mixture evenly.
Place cornflakes/ ritz crackers in a separate bag to place in pantry.

TO PREPARE AFTER FREEZING
Thaw and place ingredients in casserole dish. Mix cornflakes/crakers and melted butter, sprinkle over top. If still frozen, bake at 400 for 1 ½ hours, uncovering the last 15 min. If thawed, bake @ 350 for 45 min, uncovering last 15 min.
Sometimes I will add ham or sausage to this dish if I want to serve it as a main dish rather than a side dish.
