Kartoshnik with Onions and Cheese

3 large potatoes, peeled and cut in quarters
4 large eggs
1/4 cup whipping cream
3/4 tsp. salt
3/4 cup grated Swiss cheese
3/4 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 medium onion, finely chopped
3 tsp. baking powder
1/2 cup melted butter
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup finely chopped green onions

eggs, add whipping cream, salt and whisk until blended. Add mashed
potatoes and mix until well blended. Add both cheese and onions
