Creamed Potatoes for Dialysis Patients

“I love potatoes, but they are a no-no for us dialysis patients unless treated in a manner similar to this recipe. The butter and cream cheese are just fine if you are on dialysis. The addition of the sweet potato adds a little extra pift. You don't have to be on dialysis to enjoy these but they are a little high in fat. This method removes much of the potassium from the potatoes, which is what dialysis patients need.”
