Prick each potato a few times. Bake in 400°F (200°C) oven until tender, 40 to 50 minutes. Let cool enough to handle. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 2 days.)

Peel potatoes. In food processor or with masher, puree together potatoes, milk, salt and pepper. Whir or whisk in egg yolks; transfer to large bowl. Fold in cheese, ham and onions.

In separate bowl, whisk egg whites with cream of tartar (if using) until stiff peaks; mix one-third into potato mixture. Fold in remaining whites until blended.

Scrape into buttered 8-cup (2 L) baking dish. Bake in 400°F (200°C) oven until risen and centre is set, about 40 minutes.

Makes 4 to 6 servings.
