    1. 1
      Scrub the potatoes, place them in a saucepan, cover with water, and boil until tender (about 20 minutes). Drain, allow the potatoes to cool. Peel them, cut them into quarters, and set aside.
    2. 2
      In a small mixing bowl, combine the lemon juice, red pepper, and salt. Add onion slices and coat them with the mixture. Stir well and set aside.
    3. 3
      Heat oil in a large skillet over low heat.
    4. 4
      Add cheese, turmeric, and heavy cream. Stirring constantly, continue cooking over low heat until cheese melts and mixture is smooth.
    5. 5
      Add the cooked potatoes and gently stir to heat through, about 5 minutes. Do not allow mixture to boil, or it will curdle.
    6. 6
      Transfer to a serving bowl and garnish with hard-boiled eggs.
    7. 7
      Sprinkle onion mixture over the potatoes. Serve immediately while potatoes are hot.

      I had trouble getting the cheese to melt smoothly into the cream(I used the swiss), it came out a little lumpy no matter what I did(I made sure not to boil it). Also, the sauce was a little thin, maybe because of the cheese. Other than that small problem this dish was a hit. I loved the onions! They added a nice acidic crunch to the dish. The eggs were a nice touch as well. Made for ZWT7.
