From the island of Madeira in the Azores, off the coast of Portugal. Use a firm potato that will not get mushy when boiled. For the cheese, if you have access to Azorean Bravo cheese, use it, otherwise havarti is similar.

Ingredients

1 lb

2
hard boiled eggs, peeled and yolk and white separated
1 c
milk, divided
1 Tbsp
butter, softened
1/4 c
finely chopped onion

1/2 c
grated havarti cheese
1 Tbsp

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350F.
2
In a pot, boil the potatoes in salted water until for tender, about 20 minutes. Drain.
3
In a small bowl, combine just the egg yolk with 1/2 cup of the milk, mashing them into a "sauce".
4
Chop the egg whites and reserve.
5
Mix remaining milk, butter, onion, salt, pepper and hot sauce in a large bowl. Add the egg yolk mixture and the cooked potatoes to the bowl and turn to coat. Transfer to an oven-proof baking dish (lightly coated with nonstick cooking spray). Top with the cheese.
