Whether it’s Christmas, Easter, or a summertime barbeque, you can be assured that these Gooey Potatoes will be on our dinner table.
I feel like mashed potatoes and gravy are reserved for Thanksgiving so we serve these at basically every other holiday besides that. Some people call this dish potato casserole and some people call these funeral potatoes (or maybe just in my hometown?).
Although I have been asked on more than one occasion to take these to a luncheon following a funeral, I always prefer to call them gooey potatoes. Gooey Potatoes is a much less morbid name and describes their bubbly, cheesy, and creamy nature.
Here’s my perfectly portioned dish right out of the oven. Just sprinkle a cheddar cheese and cornflake mixture on top and pop it back in the oven to get the crust all crispy.
Oops! Someone got a little carried away with the taste testing…
The best part about these potatoes is that they can be prepared in less than five minutes. People are always amazed at how easy these are and still have that homemade and comforting taste.
Christy’s Tip: You can save time by assembling this dish ahead of time. Store in the refrigerator then pop it into the oven and bake when you are ready.
