Categories: potatoes, side dishes

1 1/2 pounds russet potatoes, peeled and cubed
3 cloves garlic, peeled
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 ounces prosciutto, thinly sliced, finely chopped
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 cup skim milk, or more if needed
1/2 cup parmesan cheese, freshly grated
freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons parmesan cheese

Cook potatoes and garlic in large pot of boiling water until potatoes are very tender, about 15 minutes. Drain; return potatoes and garlic to same pot.

Meanwhile, melt butter in heavy small saucepan over medium heat. Add chopped prosciutto and thyme and sauté until fragrant, about 2 minutes.

Add prosciutto mixture and 3/4 cup milk to potatoes and garlic. Mash well, adding more milk by tablespoonfuls if potatoes are dry. Mix in 1/2 cup cheese. Season with pepper. (Can be prepared 6 hours ahead. Cover and chill. Stir over low heat to rewarm, adding more milk by tablespoonfuls, if desired.) Transfer potatoes to bowl. Sprinkle lightly with 2 tablespoons cheese; serve.
