Rochester Plate Sauce

If you are from upstate New York then you know what a plate is. It is called a variety of things like trash plate, garbage plate, or just plate, but it is far from rubbish. You have seen me post about it on recent trips up to New York. I was so excited when my brother told me that Jim from Rochester was sending me a sample for you all to see!

The website also has recipes for a classic cheeseburger plate, mac salad and homefries that are KEY to a great plate. I want to bring you through the steps to make your own.
Start off by making your mac salad, home fries and burgers. 
 The recipes are quite simple and when you put the sauce and toppings on you realize you really don't need anything fancy.
 I just want to point out that mom made the best home fries ever!! 
Fill your plate with mac salad on one side and home fries on the other.
Put your hamburgers or cheeseburgers on top of the mac salad and fries. We cooked them on the stove in a skillet like suggested at about 1/4 lb each. You really don't want them too thick, thinner is better.
Next you will put your plate sauce on the burgers. The plate sauce comes with 3 packets in the box and enough for 2-3 healthy sized portions.
 It was super easy to prepare. You just cut it for ventilation and microwave it for 90 seconds. It was a great flavor and really made the plate come together.
The toppings that are popular with a plate are ketchup, mustard and onions (we omitted the onions). 
I love how I can make a plate at home and not have to be in New York to get one. This is one of the reasons Jim started the company. He lives in Massachusetts and his cravings turned into a plus for us all!  Head on over to his site to purchase your own plate sauce! Enjoy

I'm so glad you enjoyed it, Jen! If you have some sauce left, give my new recipe for mac n cheese a try. Thanks again!
