Helpful hints

  • Steps 2 through 8 of this casserole can be done ahead of time. Cool completely, covered and refrigerated for a make-ahead meal.
  • If desired, Gruyère cheese can be used in place of Swiss cheese.
  • Rice Dream Classic original rice drink is low in phosphorus and potassium. Always read labels on milk substitute products and avoid those with phosphate additives.

Want to cook this for dinner tonight but there is cheddar, swiss and parmesan cheeses and cheese is on his high phosphorus food list to avoid could I substitute cream cheese for some of the recipe? I think its lower in phosphorus. Dietitian comment: Yes you can substitute cream cheese for part of the other cheeses and phosphorus will be lower. I am not sure how 'cheesy' the recipe will taste.

My husband just made this. Looking forward to eating it when it's done baking. I read the instructions a few times. When do we use the olive oil? Dietitian comment: Hope you enjoyed the dish! The olive oil should have been omitted due to a change from the original instructions. I have adjusted the ingredient list and nutritional values. However if you want to include it you could replace one tablespoon of the butter with olive oil. Thanks.

I use Almond Breeze unsweetened for just everything! Can this be used instead of the rice drink? My budget barely affords one milk substitute. Dietitian comment: Yes, many of the almond milk prioducts are suitable for a kidney diet. However because products vary so much in potassiun, phosphorus, and food additives we recommend you consult with yur dietitian for specific brand recommendations.
