Kartoshnik, when baked,
looks like a cake but is eaten like a potato. Serve as you would baked
potatoes with your meal.
In a medium size
cooking pot, add potatoes, cover with water and boil until cooked.
When done, drain
water and discard. Mash potatoes and set aside. Preheat oven to 450 F.
In a large mixing
bowl, beat eggs, add whipping cream and salt and whisk until well blended.
Add mashed potatoes
and mix until well blended.
Add both cheese and
onions and stir well to mix.
Add baking powder
and mix well.
Prepare a 9" x 9"
oven-proof baking dish by spraying with a no-stick cooking spray or rub
inside of dish with butter or margarine. Pour potato mixture into dish
Bake in preheated
450 F oven for 35 minutes or until top has a nice light-brown color. The
Kartoshnik cake will rise but will settle when removed from oven. Let
cool for about 5 minutes before cutting.
In a small saucepan,
melt 1/2 cup butter and use as desired on Kartoshnik squares when serving.
Cut Kartoshnik into 3" x 3" squares (or as desired) and serve with melted
butter, a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkling of chopped green onions.
Uncle Bill's Tips: You may also use yogurt, chopped chives or bacon bits
on the Kartoshnik.
