Day 9 of “The 12 Days of a Bacon-Wrapped Christmas brings us a bacon-wrapped tofu. This recipe is quick & easy and quite tasty since the tofu really takes on the flavor of the other ingredients.

Buy yourself a pack of firm tofu. We chose a non-refrigerated variety.

Take the tofu out of the pack and wrap it in some paper towels. Put a heavy book on top of the tofu block for about 10 minutes to squeeze out a lot of the moisture.

Get some soy sauce…

and some brown sugar…

and combine the two in a bowl.

Mix the soy sauce and brown sugar together to make a thin marinade.

Now, slice the tofu in cubes and trim some raw bacon strips in half to fit your cubes of tofu.

Wrap the bacon around the tofu cubes. Secure with toothpicks if necessary.

Dip each cube in the marinade. Cover the tofu/bacon cubes generously with the marinade.

Cook the cubes in a frying pan over medium heat until the bacon is as crispy as you like. You’ll probably have to turn the cubes a few times as you cook.

The final result is a pretty, great tasting treat you can use as an appetizer for nearly any meal. This recipe earns a solid Smaste™ rating of 38.92. Highly recommended!
