Funeral Potatoes

In our church, whenever there is a funeral, we prepare and serve a luncheon for the family of the deceased. Almost every dinner includes what has come to be known as "funeral potatoes". This past month or so I have made this dish about 6 times. I have to admit I'm tired of it, but this is a good recipe to have on hand. There are several variations, but they are all pretty much the same.

8 large potatoes, skinned, boiled, and grated
1 cube margarine or butter melted
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese grated
1 16 oz. container of sour cream
3 green onions chopped

Some people skin the potatoes after boiling them, but I dont' like waiting for them to cool, so I skin them before. Some people use frozen hash browns in place of fresh potatoes. Just make sure that if you use frozen ones, you let them thaw at least partially before baking.
Combine all ingredients and put in a 9"x13" pan, and bake for about 30 minutes at 350 degrees. After eating them, have your cholesterol checked. ;)
