Shredded Potato au Gratin and My Aunt's Potato Casserole

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure policy.

So today’s post is all about the potatoes to serve along with your Easter ham.  And lucky you, no joke, I am sharing 2 recipes with you.  The first one for Shredded Potato au Gratin comes from a recipe card that I got in the mail.  I’m sure you know the ones where they try and get you to sign up and you’ll receive a set of cards each month to add to your book.  I get them all the time.  Most of you probably just throw it away as junk mail, but I am always on the look out for a good recipe. 

So this recipe came from Great American Home Baking with some slight adaptions from me.  There are two fun things about this recipe.  First is the number of ingredients.  There are only four ingredients plus salt and pepper.  It is so easy and simple to make.  Next is you can speed up the cooking time by baking the potatoes in ramekins, but if you don’t have them – no problem.  Just cook them in a baking dish for a little bit longer.  The whole family loved them.  i have made them several times.  The recipe itself is actually quite similar to the recipe I have posted before for Market Street Potatoes.

This first time I made these I put them in my 1/2 cup ramekins.
The second time I made them in the 11 x 7 dish. I actually forgot to put the 1/2 cup of cheese on top. I know what was I thinking!

The next recipe is a family recipe from my great aunt. 

She was an awesome cook and entertainer.  I have given the recipe my own little twist with the addition of green onion.  This recipe is what is traditionally what we call here in Utah as funeral potatoes.  I know it is a weird name for them. However, it get that name because it is one we usually serve along with ham at a luncheon following a funeral.  I have heard in other parts of the country that call the recipe party potatoes.  Whatever you like to call them, doesn’t matter.  They are delicious and are excellent to serve with ham.  You won’t loose with either of these recipes.

  7. Hi. I know this post has been around awhile, but I’m finally emailing to say that I. LOVE. THIS. RECIPE. Awhile back I wanted to make a shredded potato recipe for a dinner I was catering and all I could find were the ones using canned soups. My business and my cooking blog’s philosophy is not using processed food so I was happy to find your recipe. Once I did, I haven’t stopped using it. My eight year old requested the potatoes for his birthday dinner and the reason I’m back on your site today is to tell my twelve year old son how to make them because he is starting to cook once a week and he wanted to know how to make them to go with his menu for this weekend. Thanks so much.

  15. YUM! My mom has been making your Great Aunt’s potato’s for years. We love it. She does substiture cheese soup (or celery soup) for the mushroom soup because I’m not a fan of the grey bits:)
