I went shopping the other day and picked up a 32 oz tub of plain, low fat yogurt by mistake. I had meant to get low fat vanilla which I sometimes have for breakfast.

I have no idea what to do with this plain yogurt but I'd hate to waste it. I would love to hear any recipe suggestions you might have - TIA .

While I don't have the recipes on hand, you can use it muffin recipes. You can also use it in fruit smoothies. My son loves those.

My FIL has cholesterol issues, but being 'from the old country' he loves his sour cream. Before the advent of 'low-fat,' 'no fat,' and 'fat free' sour cream, I used to substitute plain yogurt in recipes calling for sour cream and vanilla yogurt in recipes calling for sweetened sour cream. Works well in most cake and cookie recipes and in side dishes (such as a fruit salad) where you are mixing other ingredients into it. I am not so sure that those altered products are all that healthy so I continue to use the substitution whenever possible. There are quite a few scone recipes that call for sour cream in the dough. I bet you could use yogurt there, in fact, I think I have done it. You might need to adjust the flour a bit if it is a scoosh too sticky.

You could add just a little vanilla extract for flavor and some fruit if you like.

I use plain yogurt (strained) as a sour cream replacement in recipes and on baked potatoes, etc.

but there's no reason you can't add sugar or maple syrup or honey and make your own sweet yogurt. (healthier than high fructose corn syrup as well)
You could top with some granola and fruit.

I use plain yogurt with fruit... I will grate apples, add raisins, some honey, vanilla, cinnamon...very yummy

you can do this with other fruits... bannanas... peaches... berries... ditch the cin... put almond ext instead... add nuts... it is really good. You might actually like it better

We eat that all the time with some honey drizzled in. I sometimes add cereal, like Fiber One or Grapenuts or something. Even the kids will eat it (if I bump up the honey a bit!)

You can make a wonderful summer salad with sliced cucumbers, minced shallots, a bit of dill and plain yogurt. We like it with fresh garlic, too, though that might be a bit too highly flavored for some folks.

Default Oven "fried" chicken

Very simple

Cut 1 to 2 pounds chicken breast into strips about 1 inch wide. Roll the strips in yogurt and then in a mixture of 1/2 c. chopped nuts, 1/2 c. sweetened coconut flakes, and 1 c. breadcrumbs. Use tongs or face the consequences. The stuff is sticky.

Cook 15 minutes at 450 and 15 at 350.

I even like these cold.
