DIRECTIONS

  • In a medium size saucepan, add potatoes, cover with water and bring to boil.
  • Reduce heat and cook until done about 15 minutes.
  • When done, drain and discard water.
  • Mash potatoes and set aside.
  • Preheat oven to 450 F degrees.
  • In a mixing bowl, beat eggs, add whipping cream and salt and whisk until well blended.
  • Add mashed potatoes and whisk until blended.
  • Add both grated cheeses and finely chopped onion and mix well.
  • Add baking powder and stir to incorporate.
  • Prepare a 9 inch square oven-proof casserole dish by spraying with a vegetable oil or rubbing inside with butter.
  • Pour potato mixture into prepared dish and level.
  • Bake in preheated 450 F oven for 35 minutes or until the top has a nice light golden color.
  • Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes before cutting.
  • In a small saucepan, melt 1/2 cup butter.
  • Cut Kartoshnik into 3 inch squares.
  • When serving, sprinkle with melted butter, add a dollop of sour cream or yogurt and a sprinkling of chopped green onions.
  • This recipe doubles very well. However, use only 6 eggs and 4 teaspoons of baking powder. Baking time is still the same, 35 minutes at 450 F.
