I've recently discovered the awesomeness of Greek Yogurt... the texture is amazing, and with a bit of honey, it is really good!

I've been experimenting and trying yogurt as substitutions in recipes. Does anyone know of any recipes that use yogurt?

I've seen it in a mashed potato recipes and a recipe for icing.

So far, I've used it as a replacement for milk and butter when making Kraft macaroni and cheese. I've also used it to make dip...

Oooh, icing. That sounds good!

I use it as a sour cream replacement on baked potatoes, or use a dollop on top of soups or chili.

I buy muller lights~ which are low cal yoghurts. With a bit of cinnamon, or some berries and popped into the freezer for 2 hours, its a silky soft icecream replacement for me <3

I have used regular plain yogurt in stroganoff, but not greek style. It worked ok, but it was clearly not as 'rich'. If you are on a budget, I'd save the greek style for when I want thickness on my spoon, and save the cheaper regular yogurt for being absorbed in to sauces.

yeah! my indian friend said that some people use cream and others use yogurt, so i'm definitely gonna have to try the indian recipes with yogurt. i had been using milk, which kind of sucks all around.
