Breaded Tofu

I have been trying to eat healthy and add variety to our routine of beef and pork…SO, I recently bought some tofu and made it for dinner.  The best thing about it, was that my husband LOVED it!  He was more then pleased to trade in his meat for a day, and eat tofu instead.  I have recently been shopping at this amazing Korean grocery store near my house, and I try to make it a point to eat all the samples they offer…one day they were offering samples of tofu, pan-fried with egg, and I said, I can make that.  So I went home, and I made it better. Enjoy!

  • 1 block of tofu
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2c green onions, chopped in 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1c panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2c bread crumbs
  • soy sauce
  • chili sauce
  • onion powder
  • garlic powder
  • 1 tbs chili flakes
  • salt
  • pepper
  • olive oil
  1. Remove the tofu from the container, and drain.  Slice the tofu into 1/2 inch slices.  Blot dry with paper towels, and lay flat on plate.
  2. Scramble the egg in a small bowl, add the green onion, chili flakes, season with salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder.  Add the bread crumbs to a separate bowl, set aside.
  3. Place a little olive oil in pan, set on med-high.  As the oil is getting hot, take each tofu slice, coat it first with egg, then thoroughly with bread crumb mixture.  Once the oil is hot, lightly fry the tofu on each side.  Fry the tofu on both sides, for best results only flip once. Once browned on both sides, remove from pan and allow to drain on metal raised drain.
  4. I only chopped half of the tofu to be fried.  Chop the remaining tofu into 1cm cubes, add oil to the pan and lightly fry the tofu.  Once the tofu is brown, add the remaining egg mixture.  Scramble the egg, and cook until done to your satisfaction.
  5. Enjoy!
