Eggs Benedict is a classic American brunch dish, and now, DaVita renal dietitian Dena from Texas has made it dialysis-friendly without losing the taste that made it famous.

Recipe submitted by DaVita renal dietitian Dena from Texas.

Portions: 4     Serving size: 1/4 recipe


  • 4 ounces Canadian bacon, sliced 
  • 3 cups water (divided use)
  • 2  English muffins 
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 3 egg yolks
  • dash of cayenne pepper
  • dash of paprika
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


  1. De-mineralize the Canadian bacon by placing in 2 cups of boiling water for 5 minutes.
  2. Remove with slotted spoon and set on top of several paper towels to absorb the moisture. Slice English muffins in half and toast them.

  4. Combine vinegar with approximately one cup water in a large skillet. Bring to a boil; reduce heat.
  5. Break eggs one at a time and slip into the water to poach the eggs. Cover and simmer for 3 to 5 minutes or until eggs are at desired doneness.
  6. Remove eggs with slotted spoon and place on top of bacon and English muffin; cover and keep warm.
  7. Melt butter.
