” This recipe uses tofu that has been frozen for 72 hours and then
quickly defrosted. Onion, celery and cheese make these burgers delicious.
This is a family favorite at the Silverwolfs’ den.
Serve in place of meat as a main entree or place on a bun along with
your favorite toppings: lettuce, onion, tomato, mayo, etc.
These burgers can also be baked in an oven preheated at 350 degrees
for 30 minutes rather than frying. ”

1 (12 ounce) package firm tofu
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1 small onion, chopped
1 stalk celery, chopped
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup vegetable oil for frying

1 Place tofu in freezer 72 hours ahead of time. To thaw, fill a
large saucepan with water and bring to a simmer. Leave tofu in
package and place in water for about 20 minutes.

2 While tofu is thawing, heat 2 teaspoons vegetable oil in a small
skillet. Saute onion and celery until soft and lightly browned.
Place in a medium bowl and set aside.

3 When tofu is thawed, squeeze out excess water. Chop tofu finely
and place in bowl with onion and celery. Mix in egg, cheese, salt
and pepper until thoroughly combined.

4 Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and pour in 1/2 cup
vegetable oil (oil should be 1/4 inch deep). Drop tofu mixture into
pan in 6 equal portions. Flatten with a spatula to form patties.
Fry for 5 to 7 minutes on each side, until golden.
