Shake and Bake

Thank you to everyone for giving me some great advice on how to help my students get to practices! I think helping them to understand why they are there and getting them excited about being a part of the team is the key. It think back on my cross-country days and I remember loving every  minute of it, and not just because of the running. I made some amazing friends and had some life long friendships( the reason Skinny Bride and I are friends). I am hosting a CARBO LOADING party the night before our first meet and I am hoping that this will help us bond more as a TEAM!

Ok enough talk on to the eats! Today was free lunch at work, I tried to load up on just veggies, but this baked chicken was calling my name!! I forgot how amazing Shake and Bake is :).

I'm actually making some breaded tofu tonight! I bought some firm tofu and I'm just dipping it in bread crumbs and adding my own spices. 400F FOR 15 minutes

Dip the tofu in water before the bread crumbs Bobbi

I would dip the tofu in egg whites and then coat in bread crumbs. Then bake! YUM! You can also mix the bread crumbs with spices.

Oh my, I have the best recipe for breaded Tofu!

It's a coconut encrusted tofu.
All you do is season the tofu with salt, pepper and red pepper flakes, dip it in egg white and then dredge in a mix of panko, cocnut and parsley. I drizzle a little maple syrup on top and bake for about 20 min. AMAZING STUFF!!!
Or, you could also try buffalo breaded tofu. I've done this too and its equally incredible. Just marinate the tofu in buffalo or hot sauce and then dredge in panko with some salt, pepper and garlic powder.

Shake and bake will always make me think of Talladaga Nights!

Looks super good! My mom used to make shake and bake and I was the queen of the shaking part!

What a great free lunch, usually free lunches don't include a single veggie or healthy element!
I like your idea of team bonding, definetely morale boosting!
