Mashed Potato "Buns" or "Bagels"

Have you made the mashed potato "buns" yet? They are pretty amazing! Their texture is very similar to bread so they make wonderful sandwiches or bagels!

You can shape the "bread" any way you like, but I like to use a donut pan so they have the shape of bagels. You can also form two round circles on a parchment lined cookie sheet to make traditional sandwich "buns".

I used two "buns" which was 1 Fueling, topped it with Pulled Root Beer BBQ Chicken I made in the Instant Pot. The recipe for the chicken is below as well! I topped it with ranch cole slaw and it was delicious! When making this little sandwich, you still have 2/3 Lean, 2 Greens, and 4 other Fuelings to complete your day! Enjoy!

Mashed Potato "Buns"

1 Medifast or Optavia Mashed Potatoes (1 Fueling)
2 Egg Whites (1/7 Lean)
1 tsp Baking Powder (2 Condiments)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk the egg whites until foamy. Add the baking powder and mashed potatoes. Whisk until combined. Pour in a ziploc bag and shape the bread into desired shape or use a donut pan. If shaping yourself with a ziploc bag, use parchment paper over a baking sheet. If using a donut pan, lightly spray pan with cooking spray. Bake for about 10 to 12 minutes or until done.
