This is a new twist on funeral potatoes or potato casserole. I wasn't sure the hubs was going to like it because he is not much of a ranch fan, but to my surprise he quite liked them as did I. They were super easy to throw together. This made enough to feed our family of six with one serving of leftovers. I found the recipe on pinterest, but when I went back to link to it, the site wouldn't work. I modified it quite a bit from the original and it worked out well for our family. Just a side note, our family's new favorite vegetable...edamame beans!
