“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.”

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!
