As suggested I cut the margarine down by half. Turned out quite like Cracker Barrel I thought.

This is substantially the recipe for the famous Mormon Funeral Potatoes. Just add a topping of crumbled corn flakes or crumbled potato chips before baking, and you've got a historic Utah dish that everybody loves -- and you don't have to just serve it after a funeral. It goes very well at potlucks, holiday dinners, etc. etc. It's rich, caloric, and full of fat -- AND DELICIOUS.

The previous comment as to the recipe being too greasy was right-on...would need to cut back on the margarine by about 1/2. It also took longer than 35 minutes....more like 50 minutes to cook in a 9x13 clear casserole dish on the top shelf of my oven (thermometer verified @ 350 degrees). However the frozen ORA-IDA 2 lb pkg of hashbrowns I found were diced. I wonder if they would have done better shredded as well. Taste was acceptable but soaked 3 paper towels with grease after 50 minutes of cooking. Perhaps dredging the diced potatos with flour could have helped.

Just as good as going all the way to cracker Barrel and you can get a better portion then they give you. This is one i will make over and over again.

Followed recipe as written. It was very greasy and too salty. Next time I will omit the salt completely and cut down the butter to a tablespoon perhaps.

Can you make ahead, refrigerate, and bake later?
