The TASTIEST & HEALTHIEST Creamy Potatoes with Caramelized Onions

Are you ready for one of the best-tasting potato dishes ever? These Creamy Potatoes with Caramelized Onions are just that. Loaded with so many dimensions of flavors, easy to make and done in just 30 minutes.

You can serve these creamy potatoes as a tapas appetizer or even as a side dish. They work perfect next to some grilled fish and a bottle of Spanish wine. Either way you go, the flavors will rock your world.

The best part about these creamy potatoes? They are super healthy! Yes, you heard that correctly, creamy and healthy. The secret is using Greek yogurt instead of heavy whipping cream. And let me tell you, the yogurt adds an incredible burst of flavors.

TIPS & TRICKS to Make this Recipe: When adding the Greek yogurt into the dish, make sure it is at room temperature. Otherwise it will curdle. For the caramelized onions, I like to add some white sugar to the onions when they are cooking, this is the secret to helping them caramelize.
