  1. Thaw tofu, 8 hours to overnight. Place in a colander with a weight on top to squeeze moisture out.
  2. Place tofu on a flat work surface and cut into approximately 16 'nuggets.'
  3. Mix milk, mustard, garlic salt, onion powder, and pepper together in a bowl. Pour break crumbs into a separate bowl. Dip each nugget into the milk mixture and roll into the bread crumbs, coating completely.
  4. Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add nuggets; cook, flipping halfway, until golden brown, about 7 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • You can also spray these nuggets with cooking spray, place on a lightly greased baking sheet, and bake in the oven at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C), turning halfway through cook time.
