Where I'm from, the term "Funeral Potatoes" is a common term used for a potato dish that is served, usually for luncheons after a funeral.  The recipe feeds a crowd, and is pretty quick and easy to make.  Well, my friend developed her own recipe for funeral potatoes--and I  must say, her recipe for CHEESY SCALLOPED POTATOES is my favorite, by far!  The flavors blend together so well, and the flavorful green onions and cheese make it utterly delicious!    Try it--I think you'll really enjoy it.  In fact, I've never gone back to the original funeral potato recipe!

6 medium potatoes
1 pint sour cream
12 oz. medium cheddar cheese, grated
1 bunch green onions, chopped
3 Tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
Cover potatoes with water and cook, with jackets on, until tender.  Remove skins when cool, then grate on the large setting of a grater.  Set aside.  Combine the remainder of the ingredients, then gently fold into the grated potatoes.  Turn out into a 13X9" baking dish.  Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees, for 30-40 minutes.  Delicious!  NOTE:  If you want to sprinkle your own crumb topping on before baking, it's also delicious that way.  Also, some have used frozen hash browns for this, which makes it super quick and easy!
