      Instructions
      1. Peel potatoes and cut into 2" chunks. Simmer potatoes in lightly salted water until very tender 15-20 minutes. Drain potatoes and return pot to low heat. Mash potatoes over low heat, allowing the potatoes to give off any excess moisture. Once potatoes are smooth, remove from heat and add butter, cream cheese, roasted garlic, salt and pepper. Continue to mash until combined and creamy. Stir in fresh herbs.
      2. Preheat grill to medium high or 450℉. Scoop the potatoes onto the pre-soaked cedar planks using a 1/4 cup scoop, leaving at least an inch between scoops (can fit about 8 per plank). Place planks on the grill and cook for 18-20 minutes until hot and golden, brushing with melted butter about half way through the cooking time.
      3. Remove the planks from the grill and serve potatoes directly from the plank or gently place the potatoes onto a serving dish and garnish with additional fresh herbs and melted butter if desired.
      Recipe Notes

      The potatoes can be cooked, mashed, scooped and chilled up to a day in advance. Remove from the refrigerator and place on pre-soaked planks when ready to grill. Makes about 12-14 1/4 cup scoops.

      To roast the garlic, preheat the oven to 350℉.  Cut the top off the head of garlic and place on a double layer of foil.  Drizzle with olive oil and fold the foil over the bulb crimping all edges to seal the packet.  Place on a baking tray and bake for about 45 minutes until golden and soft. Alternatively, you can make roasted garlic on the grill, here's how Grill Roasted Garlic

          Instructions
          Roasted Garlic
          1. Preheat oven to 350℉. Cut the top 1/4 off of two bulbs of garlic, place on foil, drizzle with olive oil. Fold foil over the bulbs and crimp to seal packet. Place on a baking sheet and bake for approximately 45 minutes.
          2. Remove from oven and allow to cool to room temperature before squeezing the garlic cloves out of the bulb shell. Set aside.
          Croutons
          1. Preheat oven to 350℉. Make a paste out of the roasted garlic cloves by smearing them with the back of a french knife. Finely chop parsley and combine with roasted garlic and olive oil. Drizzle oil mixture over the bread cubes and toss to combine. Spread out in a single layer on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for approximately 30 minutes, tossing at least once during baking time.
          Dressing
          1. In a blender, using short pulses, combine eggs, vinegar, roasted garlic, anchovy paste, worcestershire sauce, dijon, and mustard powder.
          2. With blender on medium speed add olive oil gradually in a thin stream to egg mixture. Once thick and emulsified add parmesan cheese and pulse twice to combine. Add cracked black pepper and course sea salt to taste.
          Crispy Prosciutto
          1. Slice sheets of prosciutto into 1/4 slices. Heat olive oil in a non stick skillet over medium heat. Add prosciutto and cook until crispy, tossing occasionally. Remove from heat and drain on paper towel to remove excess fat.
          2. Arrange lettuce on plate and drizzle with dressing. Top with croutons and crispy prosciutto. Add shaved parmesan if desired.
          Recipe Notes

          It is easier to cut each prosciutto slice into strips than it is to stack the slices, cut and separate each slice. The pasteurized eggs used where purchased in a carton.
