Microwave Egg and Veggie Jars
- CKD non-dialysis
- Lower Protein
- 4 microwave-safe pint-sized jars with lids
- 8 ounces turkey sausage
- 4 tablespoons shredded natural cheddar cheese
- 1/4 cup bell pepper
- 1/4 cup onion
- 1/4 cup broccoli
- 1/4 cup mushrooms
- 1 fresh jalapeno pepper (optional)
- 8 large eggs
- In a small skillet cook the turkey sausage until browned. Chop into crumbles while cooking.
- Prepare the jars by spraying the insides with cooking spray.
- Dice the bell pepper, onion, broccoli and mushrooms. In a small bowl combine the chopped vegetables. Slice the jalapeno pepper.
- Add 1/4 cup sausage, 1 tablespoon cheese, 1/4 cup diced vegetables mixture and 2 to 3 jalapeno pepper slices to each jar.
- Cover and store the jars for up to 4 days in the refrigerator.
- When ready to eat, beat 2 eggs, add to the jar and stir well. Microwave for 30 seconds and stir. Repeat until eggs are set. (It may take 1-1/2 to 2 minutes depending on your microwave.)
- Carefully remove the jar from the microwave and enjoy.
• The jars can be frozen. Transfer from the freezer to the refrigerator the night before you plan to add eggs and cook.
• Mix and match other lower potassium vegetables such as asparagus, green onion, kale or zucchini.
• Select a natural low-sodium cheese like cheddar or Swiss. If using a higher sodium cheese like parmesan or feta reduce the amount to 1/2 tablespoon
•Choose from pork, chicken or turkey sausage without phosphorus additives. Be aware some reduced-sodium breakfast meats are quite high in potassium due to potassium additives.
• For an additive-free, lower sodium sausage try Homemade Turkey Sausage or Homemade Pan Sausage from recipes on DaVita.com.
