i have made this in the past but i used for the stuffing ie cooked pork [ loose and burgher and buffalo with onions and crushed tomatoes and sauce topped with shredded cheese } was this a good idea or not. Dietitian comment: Your version is higher in potassium and phosphorus due to the tomatoes and cheese but may be acceptable depending on the amounts. Use DaVita Diet Helper "My Creations" to add recipe ingredients and see the nutrients with your changes.

Would be good with meatloaf in the squash.

Instead of the bread I used cooked white rice and one egg to hold it all together. Is this still acceptable for CKD? Dietitian comment: Yes, excellant substitution because it's even lower in sodium.

I have only done these (in the past) with Italian sausage! Can I make my own Italian sausage (with kidney-friendly recipe) & use that? Moderator comment: Certainly! I'll be on the lookout for a kidney-friendly Italian sausage recipe to add.
