Baked Italian Style Tofu (Toaster Oven)

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Chef Joey Z.

My toaster oven has a fan in it and I love to use it to brown foods. I came up with this tofu recipe yesterday and I was delighted with the results. I served this with pasta and Marinara sauce.

I used one package of firm tofu packed in water which I cut in half and then into thirds because I wanted thinner slices. Then I used fresh bread crumbs mixed with Italian seasonings and salt. I sprayed a glass baking dish with Pam and then sprayed the tops of each piece with Pam. I baked at 350 degrees in a regular oven for 30 minutes and then broiled on low until the tops were well browned. They were super crispy! I served it with a fresh tomato sauce and pasta. Excellent!!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 (14 ounce) packages firm tofu
  • 1 large organic egg
  • 2 -3 cups Italian style breadcrumbs
  • salt and pepper


  1. Preheat the toaster oven to 350'F
  2. Line your toaster oven pan with tin foil and spray generously with coconut oil. I use coconut because it doesn't go rancid like other oils when they are heated.
  3. Open the tofu packages and drain.
  4. Break the egg in a shallow dish and beat it until combined.
  5. Put the bread crumbs in a shallow dish.
  6. Cut each of the tofu blocks in half the long way. This will give you 4 blocks total. If you like it thinner cut them into 3 so you have 6 pieces.
  7. Dip in the egg, then the bread crumbs. Salt and pepper the tops.
  8. Place on the prepared pan and spray each piece with oil generously.
  9. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Check them periodically to make sure they aren't burning.
  10. Serve with your favourite spaghetti sauce and pasta. You can even make them into a sandwich with toppings. This is very versatile.
  11. Bon Appetit!
