Can Greek yogurt be used to replace whipping cream in a scalloped potato recipe?
By Joan from Lowell, IN
Yogurt won't withstand the heat you need for the sauce and will separate plus the overall flavor of the recipe would be compromised. Here's a 1 cup substitution:
3/4 cup whole milk
1/4 cup butter (preferably unsalted), melted
Just use plain ole milk! Any kind of milk will work.
I found the above recipe by doing a Google search and I think this is the one you're referring to. I'm not sure how the scalloped potatoes will turn out if you substitute the Greek yogurt for the whipped cream.
Here's a similar recipe on the same website that uses milk and no cream.
