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.
