Grilled Tofu Sandwhich

We had a good dinner tonight. I love, LOVE grilled Italian sandwiches with gooey cheese and oh so bad for you meat. We obviously don't eat these anymore, but I have come up with an alternative to the Italian grilled sandwich. We use cooked barbecue tofu on sour dough bread with a veggie cheese slice.

4 slices sour dough bread ($.83)-You may use any bread, but the only bread we can eat is sour dough because of Hubbies yeast sensitivity.
1/2 block tofu ($. 60)
2 slices mozzarella flavored veggie cheese slice ($.80)
2/3 cup BBQ sauce ($.40)
1 T butter or olive oil spray ($.10- I'm guestimating on this one!)
1 package Green Giant Veggies (Free! on sale for $1.00, used $.50 coupon that was doubled
Panini press or electric grill press

1. Drain tofu and place in a large skillet. Crumble tofu in the pan.
2. Cook on medium high heat until much of the moisture is gone.
3. Add BBQ sauce and continue to cook another 5 minutes.
4. Butter one side of each slice or bread, or spray with olive oil spray.
5. Put a scoop of tofu and cheese on unbuttered side of the bread. Place sandwich on the grill press. Cook for 5 minutes or until sandwich is crispy.
6. Serve with veggies of your choice.

Dinner for 2 for the low price of $2.73! There is enough tofu in a block to make about 4 sandwiches. We only eat 1 sandwich each, so we will save the rest for another meal.
