hello, I am new at this which is better for this sandwich pita or English muffin. Also can you have cheese and a egg, plus turkey sausage? thank you. Dietitian comment: Both are comparable. Compare labels and select the lowest sodium bread. Limit the cheese to 1 tablespoon sharp shredded cheese as recommended in the recipe. If you have the egg instead of egg substitute, omit the cheese as the egg yolk adds to the phosphorus content.

What does the low-cholesterol egg product reduce the phosphorus to? Dietitian comment: Phosphorus ranges from 7 to 45 mg for most brands for a serving equivalent to 1 egg. Some may contain nonfat dry milk solids or phosphate additives so check the ingredient list. One large egg contains 96 mg phosphorus[INVALID]mostly in the yolk. One egg white only has 5 mg phosphorus.

I make my sausage with 85-93% lean ground chicken or turkey breast and season with poultry seasoning, sage, red and black pepper,nutmeg and garlic powder. Cook on med heat and don't overcook because it will be dry if you do. I make 2 # at a time, weigh portions and make the patties then put them on a sheet and bake @ 300 until done. I like spicy so season to your taste. Cool, package in ziplock snack bags and freeze. 30 seconds in the microwave will heat about right.

Not sure if this was already addressed. What is difference between {brewed} coffee or tea and {instant coffee or tea}. Dietitian comment: the sodium, potassium and phosphorus content are similar for the brewed and instant coffee and tea.

I have tried grounding my turkey breast with Mrs Dash blended seasoning and a little lemon pepper. It came out pretty good as long as you don't over cook it. I cooked it on both sides for 4 min.

egg substitutes are high in phosphorous, so use either egg white or whole egg. Dietitian comment: The sodium, potassium and phosphorus content varies with each brand. You must look at the nutrition facts and the ingredient list. According to the USDA nutrient database 100 grams (weight) liquid egg product contains 72 mg phosphorus. 1/4 cup (1 serving) equals 60 grams (weight), approximately 18 mg phosphorus. Some egg substitutes contain phosphate additives and/or dry milk powder which contributes more phosphorus.

How much sodium does the turkey sausage contribute? I'm wondering if I could substitute a small ground-turkey patty seasoned w/ Mrs. Dash, and whether that would significantly affect the sodium amount. Dietitian comment: The turkey sausage patty contributes 205 mg sodium. You could use one of the DaVita.com. There are 4 recipes that range from 31 to 70 mg sodium per serving.

I had a patient make this last week and raved about it. Definitely a better alternative than a fast food breakfast sandwich

This egg and sausage breakfast sandwich helps my cravings for biscuits as well as for cheese, which are both high in phosphorous, and also has needed protein to boot.

This breakfast sounds good but I am allowed only 2000 mg of sodium a day so this is too much for me to have for breakfast! I'd rather skip the sausage and use the sodium in other ways . :)
