Random experiment while I was on vacation that came out great. All my meat eating friends wanted to try my "weird tofu sandwich" and since we got back 3 out of 5 have asked me to make it for them again. This is also how I introduced my Dad to tofu. He still makes fun of me, but not as bad. When I make this for others I like to serve it with a side of blue cheese dressing and either a pickle or celery which adds a nice touch.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 ounces tofu (firm or extra firm)
  • 4 white button mushrooms, sliced
  • 12 medium red onion, sliced
  • 4 tablespoons buffalo wing sauce (or to taste)
  • 2 hard rolls (or hoagie rolls)
  • cooking spray (or butter or oil for sauteing)
  • blue cheese dressing (optional)


  1. Press tofu well and cut into reasonably sized slices (about 1/2 inch thick).
  2. Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper.
  3. Spray a skillet or add a small bit of butter/oil and brown the tofu on both sides (about 7 minutes per side).
  4. While tofu cooks saute your onion and mushrooms with a little salt and pepper until onion is tender and mushrooms are just browned.
  5. Set aside.
  6. Turn tofu down to low.
  7. Spoon buffalo sauce over your tofu slices and, shuffle them around to coat.
  8. Let cook a few minutes on med-low heat.
  9. Pile your tofu onto rolls and top with mushrooms and onion.
