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 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.

1 Serving with 1 Fueling, 1/7 Leanest and 2 Condiments

Instant Pot Pulled Root Beer 
BBQ Chicken

2 lbs chicken breasts (4 Leaner)
12 oz diet root beer
3/4 cup G Hughes Hickory BBQ Sauce or 1 1/2 cups G Hughes Carolina Sweet Heat BBQ Sauce, divided (12 Condiments)

Whisk together root beer and 1/2 cup bbq sauce in a bowl.
Place chicken breasts and bbq mixture in the Instant Pot.
Lock Instant Pot in place and make sure the pressure release valve is set to sealing.
Cook on high pressure for 10 min. 
Instant Pot will take 10 to 15 min to come to pressure then it will countdown 10 minutes.
Do a 10 min NPR (natural pressure release). 
Drain liquid, then shred chicken. 
Add the remaining BBQ sauce and stir until combined.
