Ingredients (Serves 4)
- 500g/1lb 2oz Jersey Royal new potatoes, gently rubbed to remove flaky skins
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic, crushed
- 150g/5oz prosciutto
- 2 tbsp fresh chives, chopped
- 4 tbsp reduced-fat fromage frais
- 4 spring onions, trimmed and finely sliced
Bring a large pan of water to the boil, add the potatoes and cook for 12-15 minutes or until tender. Drain.
Heat the oil in a frying pan, add the garlic and then cook for 3-4 minutes, until soft. Add the prosciutto and cook for a further 4-6 minutes, then remove and blot on kitchen paper.
Mix together the chives and fromage frais. Using a potato masher, crush the potatoes to give a coarse texture.
Serve the potatoes topped with the prosciutto and spring onions, with the fromage frais in a separate bowl or on top of the prosciutto.
