I did a search and found nothing about this issue on this board.
Ive been going crazy- I can't find the correct term for this sort of thing. You know, when you order enchiladas at a Mexican restaurant, they usually bring 'em out on special plates with a steel liner. The plate-liner was obviously heated in the oven then placed in the plate holder/tray before serving.
I'd love to buy one or two for home-- but for the life of me, I can't find any! Probably because I dont know what this is called.
The OP is talking about plates that are metal and nestle into a non-metal platter for service. Not sure where you would find them, maybe a restaurant supply house?
Must be a New Mexican thing then. I see those plates ALL the time here-- and its not a fajita plate thats for sure :)
Ill have to take a pic of one next time and post! Thanks for your replies though--
