A cheesy potato casserole that began in Utah is known as 'funeral potatoes.' The dish is a tradition at Mormon funerals that spread across Utah and neighboring states. This cheesy potato recipe requires very little preparation. Grease a 9 x 13-inch cake pan. Mix 32-ounces of shredded hash browns and 8-ounces of sour cream in a bowl then spread the mixture into the pan. Use a large bowl to toss 3-cups of crushed corn flakes in 6-tablespoons of melted butter. Spread the corn flakes evenly over the hash browns in the pan. Bake at 350°F for 45 minutes.
