Helpful hints

  • Substitute whole wheat toast or a soft warm flour tortilla (fajita size) for sandwich thins.
  • One medium baking potato weighs about 12 ounces.
  • Double-cook technique for reducing potassium in potatoes: Peel potatoes and dice into small pieces. Place potato pieces in a pot of water and bring to a boil. Drain water then add fresh water. Bring water to a boil and cook potatoes for 10 minutes. Drain water and prepare potatoes as desired. The double cook method reduces potassium below 200 mg for a 100 gram portion (2/3 cup).
  • Another well-known technique for reducing potassium in potatoes is to cut up and soak potato pieces in water. To learn more about this technique read the article “Lowering Potassium in Potatoes” on

Potato and Egg Sandwich

How does this recipe rate on the glyceric scale with the potato? I am aware that they rate high by themselves. Dietitian comment: Mixed meals cannot be rated like individual foods due to the many variables. For a personal touch you could check glucose level before and after eating a serving to determine how it impacts you individually.
