                                          • Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
                                          • Preheat oven to 400 °F.
                                          • Lightly spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
                                            For 25 servings, use 1 full sheet pan (18" x 26" x 1") and 1 half sheet pan (18” x 13” x 1”).
                                            For 50 servings, use 2 full sheet pans (18" x 26" x 1").
                                          • To make marinade: In a 2-gallon plastic bag, combine hoisin sauce, soy sauce, and water. Seal the bag tightly. Squeeze and release the bag several times to mix ingredients together.
                                          • Add tofu cubes to marinade. Seal the bag tightly. Lightly toss tofu by turning the bag over repeatedly on a flat surface to prevent tofu from breaking apart. Marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour at 40 °F or lower. Turn bag over every 15 minutes.
                                          • In a separate 2-gallon plastic bag, combine whole-wheat flour, cornmeal, dry mustard, and garlic powder. Seal the bag tightly. Shake to mix.
                                          • Carefully remove tofu from marinade a few cubes at a time. Place tofu cubes in the 2-gallon plastic bag with the seasoned flour-cornmeal mixture. Carefully turn the bag over to coat the tofu with breading. Remove coated tofu cubes and place on baking sheet in a single layer. Repeat until all tofu cubes are coated. Discard any remaining marinade (see notes).
                                          • Bake for 15 minutes or until tofu is lightly crisp. Heat to an internal temperature of 140 °F or higher for at least 15 seconds. Remove from the oven.
                                          • Serve 1 cup (#4 scoop). Serve immediately, or keep warm at 140 °F or higher.
