Southern Fried Tofu – Wait, What? House-Autry Breader

Southern Fried Tofu – Wait, What? House-Autry Breader
House-Autry Mills was sending me one of their flavorful products to try, so I was excited to see which one I would get! As a fan of all food Southern, I was hoping for Hush Puppy mix because that’s simply something we don’t get enough of here in Southern California. However, I received the Chicken Breader mix. Hmmm…as a Pescatarian family (we eat fish, lacto/ovo & vegetarian diet), I had to put my thinking cap on. There is no actual Chicken in the mix, so this was an easy peasy recipe conversion.  Instead of chicken, tofu it is! I’m always looking for something fun to so with tofu, as it’s such a maleable food that can take on pretty much anything you want it to be. So, in honor of the upcoming Super Bowl and that fact that I’m a So Cal girl rooting for the Panthers, Southern Style Buffalo Tofu it is!

I sliced firm tofu into strips and let it marinate in (mixed) 1 egg + 2 tablespoons milk + 2 tablespoons of Spicy Buffalo Wing Sauce.

The tofu soaked for about an hour and then I dredged the wet strips in the House-Autry Mills Chicken Breader mix in a shallow bowl.

I put on a baking sheet, and baked on 350 degrees for 35 minutes. After 25 minutes, I did flip all my Spicy Fakey Wings so it would golden on all sides.

I let them cool for about 10 minutes and then put in front of my family. I am happy I took a picture when they came out because they disappeared within minutes. That my friends, is a success. The batter was a fabulously lightly cripsy combo with the spicy marinated tofu. Since I didn’t fry anything, there was trace amounts of fat since I only used one egg for the entire recipe. Woo! Extra bonus. Easy, healthy, spicy and hey, Southern! I do have to admit that if I had a fryer available, it would have been pretty darn tasty quickly fried up as well. 🙂

If you have kids are an looking for a fun way to get them to eat tofu, tone the sauce to their tolerance and try this recipe!

GO Panthers!

 

Thank you to House-Autry Chicken for sending their Breader to review.
