Bought too much plain yogurt.. What do you make with it?
I use it to make curries, milkshakes, mix it in with my baby's cereal, some baking recipes..
Any other suggestions?
Blue Cheese Dressing
8 oz yogurt,
8 oz lite mayo
1 Tbl granulated garlic
1 tsp lemon pepper+
6 oz crumbled blue cheese.
This is based on the old Vallee's Steakhouse recipe but is using the yogurt in place of sour cream. We use non-fat yogurt here but I'm sure the regular will be even nicer.
My family enjoys flavored yogurts but I prefer not to use the commercially prepared varieties so I use plain yogurt at a base and stir in chopped fresh fruit, maybe a little honey, or some sweetened cooked fruit for those who prefer it without the fresh fruit texture.
I use it to prepare salad dressings and as an ingredient in breads, cakes, and as a topping for simple desserts like custards or flavored gelatin.
And/or jams/preserves. A good way to use up open jars. Unopened containers of yogurt will last for many months longer than the expiration date. I recently opened a perfectly good container of yogurt that had been on a lower rear shelf in the fridge for 2 years.
LauraGrace mentioned below about a baking substitute for buttermilk or sour cream, and you can also sub it for regular milk in baking. Dilute with water to a milky consistency.
Add it, along with some fruit or other flavorings to a ice cream maker for frozen yogurt. Mix it in with mashed or as a topping for baked potatoes, risotto or rice, creamed spinach or another creamed vegetable like broccoli; add yogurt, milk, ginger, freshly grated orange zest & a touch of brown sugar for carrots. Mix it into pancakes or use in a rice pudding (which I did recently)
