Scalloped Potatoes with Best-Ever Mushroom Sauce

This is (finally) a healthy way to have scalloped potatoes. I just love recipes that mimic a heart-attack inducing white sauce.

Best-ever mushroom sauce
Salt & Pepper

Slice potatoes thinly, then layer 1/2 on bottom of casserole dish. Top with dabs of butter, salt and pepper. Cover with 1/2 of mushroom sauce, then repeat. Bake in 180 oven for 60 minutes, or until sauce has thickened and potatoes are tender.

Best-Ever Mushroom Sauce

I'll be using this in the (upcoming) scalloped potatoes recipe from the same blog, but also think it would be lovely on steak, or mixed into pasta.

Onion, sliced
Mushrooms, sliced
Lemon Juice
Yogurt (approx 1 cup)
Sea Salt

Melt butter, then add onion and saute until cooked through. Add mushrooms and saute, covered, until cooked about halfway (still slightly plump), then add yogurt, lemon juice and salt. Bring to simmer and let cook, covered, about 30 minutes, or until thickened. Add pepper at end.
