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 know it's low carb, but it's full of saturated fat. I can't bring myself to use it in good conscience. Any substitute suggestions?
I was making a caramel sauce and needed 3 tablespoons of heavy whipping cream and did not have any, so I substituted 6 tablespoons of whipped dessert topping and it worked fine.
