Gluten-free funeral potatoes are easy to make and a real crowd pleasing recipe. They are great for Sunday supper. Whether you know them as gluten-free funeral potatoes, yummy potatoes or cheesy hashbrown casserole they are all the same and so delicious!
This family favorite meal side dish of funeral potatoes is one we have been enjoying for generations. As Mormon’s we love making casseroles. From funeral luncheons at our local church (likely where the name came from) to baby showers and Sunday dinner, this potato “casserole” is almost always on the menu.
The creamy, cheesiness of potatoes seasoned just right with Real Salt, pepper and onion is something so delicious you just can’t get enough! Pair it with perfectly seasoned barbecue chicken and you have a dinner the entire family will enjoy.
While this potato casserole recipe has always been a favorite of mine, I had to convert it to gluten-free after being diagnosed with celiac disease. Thanks to great brands like Pacific Foods, I can now do this easily do this using their gluten-free cream of chicken soup.
However, for those wanting to make a homemade gluten-free cream of chicken soup, we have a great recipe in the book my mom and I wrote, Gluten-Free on a Budget. We hope you enjoy these recipes as much as our family does.
