DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the toaster oven to 350'F
  • 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.
  • Open the tofu packages and drain.
  • Break the egg in a shallow dish and beat it until combined.
  • Put the bread crumbs in a shallow dish.
  • 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.
  • Dip in the egg, then the bread crumbs. Salt and pepper the tops.
  • Place on the prepared pan and spray each piece with oil generously.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes. Check them periodically to make sure they aren't burning.
  • Serve with your favourite spaghetti sauce and pasta. You can even make them into a sandwich with toppings. This is very versatile.
  • Bon Appetit!
