  3. Add the cornstarch slurry and stir for 1 to 2 minutes or until the mixture thickens then remove it from the heat and pour it into a large mixing bowl to cool down.

  4. Once its cooled, add the onions, cheddar, yogurt, salt, pepper, and melted butter then stir to combine.

  5. Pour the sauce mixture over the grated potatoes and mix until everything is well combined.

  6. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish, dot the top with the diced butter and bake for 55 minutes to 1 hour or until browned.
