Was planning on using Creme fraiche but only have a tiny bit left. Really CBA to do a proper white sauce- mine never work anyway. Would IBU to use Greek yoghurt, feel like this and Creme fraiche are essentially the same thing?

Jamie Oliver uses double cream with cheese if that helps.

I've done it with yogurt, quark, fromage frais...

I would. Might add a bit of flour to stabilise it.

Yup, will be fine. I always use yoghurt/creme fraiche/sour cream/philadelphia interchangably when i cba to go shopping!

I find there's still that Greek yogurt taste off it, how tiny is the tiny bit of creme frais? Enough to mix?

Yeah it'll be fine. I used it in cauliflower cheese yesterday when I discovered the milk was off.

YANBU at all. However, don't do what my friend did when he invited me round for a homemade curry one time. I mentioned the unusual flavour that I couldn't quite place in amongst the vegetables, spices, etc. "Oh yes," he replied. "The recipe said plain yoghurt but I only had fruits of the forest so I used that instead."
