Blue Plate Special

Growing up this was one of my favorite diner-style lunches. An open faced sandwich with a scoop of mashed potatoes-all covered with gravy. I upgraded it slightly by using a nice slice of grilled rib-eye and a slice of our house-made bread, but I was careful to use an ice cream scoop to get the perfectly round mound of potatoes. The turkey version is also excellent-I think we just called them open-faced beef or open-faced turkey.

Yummy-looking! How do you find time to cook outside your job?

Mick, I'm very jealous....Gramma taught your Mom to make grilled rib eye open-face sandwiches, but she taught my Mom to make chipped beef (the really gross Carl Buddig brand) S.O.S. type open-face sandwiches!!!!!

Are you serving this at the restaraunt or was this just a plain ol' everyday, throw together, easy, quick fix home meal???
