These tofu slices are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. This is a very easy recipe to make and is delicious on its own and even better when paired with your favorite dipping sauce.

You can easily make this gluten-free by subbing out the breadcrumbs for gluten-free breadcrumbs and the flour for any kind of gluten-free flour! Also, as these sit out they will lose their crisp. So, if you have any leftovers, simply pop it in the oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes to warm them up and give them their crisp back!
