We just happened to be preparing this recipe for the blog and thought that since today is little Joey‘s funeral, this would be the most appropriate day to post.


These potatoes are nick-named funeral potatoes because here in Utah, they are traditionally served at luncheons following just about every funeral around.  Of course, the version usually served at funerals is filled with butter, cheese and sour cream, but this recipe is completely milk free, gluten free, vegan, and free of all of the top 8 food allergens.

These potatoes are the ultimate comfort food and we love to eat them — not only after funerals, but at most family gatherings and especially during the cold weather months and at holiday parties.  When we volunteer to bring this dish to family gatherings, nobody even notices that these are any different than they’re milk-filled counterpart.
