AFC Tofu Cheddar Melt

If you miss the old days of oily cheese dishes, add this onto your RECIPES TO TRY list.

1/2 c. Russian Dressing by Wish-Bone

1- In large nonstick skillet, over medium heat, melt oil. Roll oil around skillet, lightly salt the oil evenly, then add tofu cubes evenly atop oil.

2- Toss tofu cubes to evenly coat with oil, then saute 3-5 minutes, hitting all sides.

3- Add black pepper, smoked paprika, garlic powder and dry mustard to taste. Toss to evenly distribute.

4- Now add cheddar shreds evenly over tofu.
