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 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

    I tried marinating, but used too much soy sauce. It is best to go easy on the marinade for this one. Otherwise it might get a bit too salty. Otherwise, this is a great way to have crisp tasty tofu. - 2/28/10

    INCREDIBLE! I have the pickiest kids in the universe and my 7 yr old ds said that he preferred these over the store bought ones! I did have to make some adjustments for my dh who is on a sodium-restricted diet, so in place of breadcrumbs, we used tortilla crumbs and salt-free seasonings. YUMMY! - 2/21/10

  • Similar to fish sticks in flavor/mozarella cheese sticks in texture. We used olive oil flavored cooking spray and Panko crumbs. Needs salt or some other season, because it is quite bland with Panko not salted and tofu not salted. My 13 loved it, and even ate the leftovers reheated. She's vegetarian. - 8/24/12
