This recipe was fantastic! I was skeptical, since I have had dubious success with tofu in the past, but this turned out perfectly. After reading the reveiws, I sliced the tofu to 1/4 inch thickness, pressed the slices with paper towel to absorb moisture, froze for 30 minutes on a cookie sheet, then removed and dipped in flour, then egg, then crumbs. Rather than frying, I baked the tofu at 350 degrees for 15 minutes each side, on a cookie sheet rubbed lightly with olive oil. The pieces did not break, and came out crispy and delicious. I then layered the ingredients as follows in a large loaf pan: tomato sauce, half the tofu, half the cheese, repeat. For those who are interested in macronutrient composition, this came out as 30% protein, 30% carbs, 40% fat (with low fat cheese and baked, not fried). It was perfect, and, yes, my carnivorous boyfriend loved it. Would be great for guests, as the breading and assembly can be done ahead.
