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.
