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. ย 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. ๐Ÿ™‚

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.
