Nancy Chevigny-Dahlke of Spokane Valley has her own favorite recipe for funeral potatoes.
She saw Ree Drummond’s recipe for funeral potatoes in Wednesday’s Spokesman-Review, but wrote in to say it’s “a lot more complicated and has different ingredients than the one I have from ‘The Essential Mormon Cookbook’ by Julie Badger Jensen.”
That’s the one she uses on a regular basis.
“These are easy, always turn out great and make enough to serve at any family get-together,” she said. “ And they are very, very yummy!”
