  1. In a medium pot, add potatoes, cover with water and boil until cooked. When done, drain water and discard. Mash potatoes and set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Prepare a 9x9-inch oven-proof baking dish by spraying with a no-stick vegetable spray or rub inside with butter or margarine.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat eggs, add whipping cream and salt, and whisk until blended. Add mashed potatoes and mix until well blended. Add both cheeses and onions and stir well. Add baking powder and mix well. Pour potato mixture into prepared baking dish and level.
  4. Bake at 450 degrees F (230 degrees C) for 35 minutes or until top has a nice light brown color. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes. (The Kartoshnik will rise when cooking, but will settle when removed from oven and cooled slightly.)
  5. In a small pot, melt butter or margarine.
  6. Cut Kartoshnik into 3x3-inch squares and serve with melted butter or margarine, a dollop of sour cream, and a sprinkling of green onions. You can also use plain yogurt, or low fat sour cream.

Very good. Use your imagination as there are a lot of things that you can add. Mushrooms, ham, BACON!, etc.

Based on other reviews I decided to add minced garlic and some red pepper flakes to give it a little more flavor, I also added cubed ham to make it a main dish. We liked it, my husband wanted m...

Excellent! We made this today, a few days before Christmas, to try it out for Christmas dinner. It's just splendid! Wonderful comfort food, delicious with the beef burgundy gravy. I didn't h...

I really don't know why I didn't like this recipe - I absolutely LOVE mashed/baked spuds with cheese/onion/butter etc. This was just so dry, and not very tasty. I felt like I wanted to add a ton...

This was a great recipe, thought i thought it was a little bland. I added extra cheeese on top, but i think it could have more cheese in the recipe as well. Depends on how much you like cheese....
