Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1 pound firm tofu, sliced into wedges/fingers
    1 cup Italian breadcrumbs
    (note: you will not need this many breadcrumbs, but using this much will ensure easier breading)

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Drain the water off of the tofu, rinse it, and set it in a colander to let excess water drain off.
Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
Cut the tofu into 1/2 inch wedges, and spray both sides of the tofu wedges with the cooking spray
Roll them in the breadcrumbs.
Lay the wedges on the cookie sheet and give the tops one more spray.
Bake for about 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
Serve with dipping sauces (ketchup, honey-mustard, ranch, etc.)

    I loved this recipe. It was the first time I had Tofu and this was delicious! The only change I made was that I used Special K cerael for the breading since I had no bread crumbs. - 8/7/07

    I really liked this recipe. The only problem I had was that I used a veggetable cooking spray and it gave the tofu a funky taste. Next time I'll probably use olive oil. - 12/2/10

    These are so good! I had some pete's2go Sesame Ginger tofu in the refrigerator and tried it with and without almond flour. They're equally good! Thanks for suggesting this. I liked the crispier ones better. I sliced them 1/4 " and baed them 20 minutes, turning half way through. - 2/1/09

    I want to try this. I have a BBQ Tofu that I love and this sounds good. I usually freeze my tofu overnight before cutting it. I makes it even firmer. - 10/18/07

    I thought this was going to be nasty, but seeing as a block of tofu and bread crumbs were one of few items in my fridge, I decided to try it. The tofu was the "herbed" variety and I added italian seasoning to the bread crumbs. Baked for about 35 min ... amazingly good! So surprised! - 5/20/10

    Made these for my super bowl party and didn't tell my guests what they were until they started to rave about them! Thanks, I will serve these again to groups of vegetarians and omnivores alike. They were a big hit. I did spice up the coating tho. - 2/1/09

    Sounds good. For anyone wondering what tofu is, it's a "beancurd" made from soya beans and water usually with a calcium based setting agent or sometimes nigari which I think comes from seaweed (it's definately of plant origin) and doesn't affect the flavour. The tofu is solid,firm, slightly soft - 10/18/07

    I've had the high-fat version of this where wedges are lightly dusted with corn starch then deep fried...it's amazing how much they taste like good deep fried stuff. If you can it's a good idea to press the wedges between paper towels to get a lot of the moisture out before cooking. Use Mrs.Dash too - 1/21/11

    I made these last night. They were wonderful. Even my husband enjoyed them. I baked them for 20 minutes and turned them half way through to make sure both sides got crisp. Next time I would had a dash of garlic powder and red pepper flake to spice them up. All in all, good recipe. - 4/13/10

    This recipe was very yummy. I followed it, but just added some garlic powder to the bread crumbs, and sliced the tofu super thin. Made it again last week with light extra firm tofu, and some hot and spicy shake and bake. Wonderful and great for when you need something quick and easy! - 3/31/10

    Not a big fan of tofu, but I was curious. I didn't have enough bread crumbs, so I mixed in some oatbran, garlic and italian seasonings and Herbamare. AWESOME!! I will make this again! - 6/20/10

    So yummy with sweet chilli sauce. I followed other comments and cooked them a little longer (30 minutes). I also made them without the breadcrumbs, and even plain (then add sauce of your choice) these are really tasty. - 7/8/11

    LOVE THIS RECIPE!!. This was my first taste of tofu. I made my own seasoning by just randomly selecting things from cabinet, onion powder, garlic salt, salt & pepper. Dipped in salsa. - 6/9/11

    I made this and it was delicious! Just have to remember firm, not semi-firm as it will break easily. Still turned out so good!! I made my own honey-mustard dip. Will be making lots more with different homemade dips. - 5/18/11

    Delicious. I added a little garlic salt to them and they turned out perfect. My husband who refuses to eat tofu even said he would try them the next time I made them. - 9/3/10
