"We've got Plates and Places", it was a quote that my great grandfather often used to encourage guest to stay, visit and dine with the family. My great grandparents had very little, but there was always enough food to go around. For me,the expression not only relates to what my great grandfather intended it's use, it also is fitting for my love to travel and the recipes I collect from those travels. So join me, "There's always Plates and Places!"

Beef Stroganoff Sandwich
This filling sandwich was a winner in our household and has been for about 14 years. It's always been one of my my families most requested dishes. Serve with a green salad and fried pototoes. It is also great to serve as an appetizer, cut into strips.
Ingredients: 2 pounds ground beef 1/2 cup chopped onion 1 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder 1/2 teaspoon pepper 1 loaf french bread Butter or margarine, softened 2 cups (16 ounces) sour cream 2 tomatoes, seeded and diced 1 large green pepper, diced 3 cups (12 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
Directions: In a skillet, brown ground beef and onion. Drain. Add salt, garlic powder and pepper. Cut bread lengthwise in half; butter both halves and place on baking sheets. Remove meat mixture from heat; stir in sour cream. Spoon onto the bread. Sprinkle with tomatoes, green pepper and cheese. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes or until the cheese is melted (bake longer for crispier bread). Yield: 8-10 servings.
