  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.

Delicious side dish for beef dishes. Also good with a hearty vegetable soup!

This potato quiche just wasn't as tasty as I had hoped it would be. My fiancee really enjoyed it, but I found it bland and I don't think I'd make it again.

Delicious comfort food. Great for brunch, topped with a poached egg, hot sauce and sour cream.

Pretty good. No idea why this recipe thinks it's enough for 10-12 people (in a 9x9 pan!?) I doubled it - came out GREAT and had only a little leftover (for 10 people). It's a nice dish. Lotta eggs! Came out like a custard almost? Or a dish you'd have for breakfast/brunch. But everyone liked it, and so did I. I fried my onions first just to mellow it out. Had a nice flavor overall and was a very nice side dish for the pork loin I made. I'd recommend this anytime.

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 more onion in it (but he always does) I wanted more cheese in it (but I always do) So I'll probably make those changes next time, and I'm considering seeing what happens if I shred the potatoe instead of mashing it.

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 have swiss cheese, so I doubled the recipe and used 1 cup cheddar, and 1/2 cup shaved parmesan cheese.....yummie! A new family favorite. If you plan to make this, remember it is a side dish, very much like mashed potatoes. It's supposed to be bland so that it compliments your meal, gravy, etc.

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 more butter and cheese... But I didn't/couldn't because of the fat and cals. Husband didn't eat his at all, which didn't really surprise me as he isn't a spud fan. Thanks, anyway.
