Prosciutto. My third favorite pork product.

So-- prosciutto is just wonderful good.  I love pancetta (and it's cousin bacon) more, and a really good slice of Serrano ham.... but next in line is the beautiful prosciutto.  We made sandwiches earlier this week with some of that good stuff, along with fresh mozzarella, basil, soft bread and some aged balsamic.  So so tasty.... but, we had a good deal left over (isaac is practically a vegetarian and max is just 3 and moody).  Anyhow- last night Scott reminded me that we still have prosciutto and "it won't last long". (he meant, it will spoil, but I believe, it just won't last long)  No love, it won't.  It will be used as such:

Take these (the yukon golds that were NOT made into mashed potatoes earlier this week)

Plus this:

And this:

add a little salt and some pepper.
Bake at 400 for 30 minutes.

Drop the chopped prosciutto (it's not chopped yet in this picture, but just tear or rough chop it).

 around the top and bake for 10 more minutes.  Delicious.  Scott's right.  It won't last long.
