    These look amazing. I've made this type of potatoe before, but always used cream. The yogurt must give them a nice tangy taste. I'm "pinning" this recipe to use later. Would be great with the Easter ham.

    I love a potato gratin with a roast, especially when it's a cut of meat that doesn't produce enough drippings for gravy or a pan sauce. I've never thought to use yogurt before, but I imagine it would lend a delicious tang. I'll be copying this one into my recipe file for sure! Have an awesome week!
