Greek Yogurt Cheesy Potato Casserole


Growing up my mother always made some type of cheesy potato casserole (or scallop potato) for the holidays.  Each holiday season I looked forward to the dish because it was something not frequently served the remainder of the year.  As an adult I have made some similar recipes, but always feel guilty as I prepare the butter and cheese filled side dish.

I have tried Greek yogurt in numerous recipes to create a healthier outcome (such as Guiltless Seven Layer Dip and Skinny Cauliflower Mac and Cheese Cups).  Recently I decided to give Greek yogurt a try in a potato casserole recipe.  I was blown away by the delicious outcome!  The substitution allowed me to significantly reduce the cheese and butter content - while still creating a delicious creamy flavor.  In face my family had no idea I included Greek yogurt in the recipe!

Try a healthier potato recipe this holiday season! You might become addicted......

Enjoy!
