<i>Tofu</i> Hamburger
  Easy tasty tofu burger! This Japanese style tofu hamburger has a hint of sesame oil in every bite. A perfect side dish for lunch!

Ingredients (serves 4):

  • 14 oz. tofu, firm or medium
  • 1 cup panko (Japanese bread crumb)
  • 1 egg
  • 3 stalks green onion, finely minced
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. dark sesame oil
  • All purpose flour for dusting
  • 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil

For sauce:
(Mix all ingredients in a small bowl)

  • 2 Tbsp. water
  • 3 Tbsp. mirin (Japanese sweet rice wine)
  • 2 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar

In a large bowl, place tofu and panko, then mash and mix with fork.


Add egg, green onion, salt, pepper, sesame oil to the bowl and mix well with a clean hand.


Divide mixture into four 3/4-inch thick oval patties. Lightly dust with flour and set aside.

Fun Tip:

Instead of shaping the patties into ovals, get creative and make fun shapes like bears and hearts!


Turn on the Gourmet Sizzler® Electric Griddle and set to 400ºF. Wait until the pilot lamp turns off and add vegetable oil. Place prepared patties on griddle and brown both sides (approximately 4 minutes on each side). Please be careful of the heated pan.


Turn the griddle to 280ºF. Pour sauce over patties then cover with the lid and cook for 3 minutes.


Open the lid, flip patties, cook for another 2 minutes and turn heat off.


Plate patties, spoon the sauce over and enjoy!
