Our garden produced an abundance of potatoes so we eat them often. This recipe is a refreshing change from fried or mashed potatoes. My children love the almond topping. It truly tastes as good as it looks.

- 1-1/2 pounds potatoes, peeled and quartered
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
- 2 eggs
- 3/4 cup whipping cream, warmed
- 1/2 cup ground almonds

- Cook potatoes in boiling water until tender, about 15 minutes; drain and place in a mixing bowl. In a skillet, saute onion in butter until tender; add to potatoes. On low speed, beat in eggs, one at a time, until smooth. Beat in cream (the mixture will be thin). Add the ground almonds, salt and nutmeg. Spoon into a greased 1-1/2-qt. baking dish. Sprinkle with the cheese and slivered almonds. Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 20 minutes. Yield: 6 servings.
