Hi guys! This week’s post is a guest post from Zlata over at Life and Thymez, a fun-filled low FODMAP food and lifestyle blog.
When Zlata and I were discussing doing guest posts on each other’s blogs, I couldn’t go past these mashed potato buns. I used to do something very similar with left over mash and I can’t believe I haven’t done it in years. Probably because left over mashed potatoes really isn’t a thing with Ev and the dogs in the house. But anyway. I’ll just have to start making extra.
These buns are great to snack on, work well as a side to soup (gluten free toast is so yesterday) or even just use them as dinner rolls.
A little about Zlata…

- Potatoes are low FODMAP in 1 cup serves.
- Butter is low enough in lactose that most should be fine with it but, if not, use your favourite butter replacement.
- Eggs, salt and pepper are all low FODMAP.
Mashed Potato Buns
- 5 pounds organic russet potatoes
- 1 stick butter (my preference is salted)
- 6 eggs (3 whole and 3 yolk)
- Salt and Pepper to taste
For instructions with step by step pictures, see the recipe at Life and Thymez.
Get a pot of water boiling and sprinkle heavily with salt. Meanwhile, peel the potatoes then cut them into halves or quarters and add to the boiling water.
Boil potatoes until cooked. You should be able to easily poke them through with a fork. Once ready, drain water and move them to a large round bowl and mash with butter. Add salt and pepper to taste, then let the potato mix cool slightly.
In the meantime, get a large baking pan ready with parchment paper and preheat oven to 350 F/180 C.
Mix 3 eggs into potatoes using hands. (It will be messy and potatoes will stick to your hands). Form bun shapes out of the mixture and add them to the baking sheet. Wash hands and crack three egg yolk in a small bowl. Brush egg yolk on each bun, making sure the tops are well covered.
Bake in oven until browned, about 45-60 minutes.
