If you've had sizzling fajitas come to your table at a Mexican restaurant, you know the excitement they stir. A sizzle plate serves double duty because you can use it to heat the food as well as to serve it. You can buy these plates -- made of stainless steel, aluminum or cast iron -- to use at home. They're simple to use, and you'll probably get a kick out of serving everyday meals on them.
Preheat your oven to 500 degrees Fahrenheit.
Put the sizzle plates in the oven for 10 minutes.
Cook the food until it's almost done.
Remove the sizzle plates from the oven and set them into wood underliners.
Place the cooked food on the sizzle plates, making sure that some of the cooking juices also make it on the plate. Serve immediately.
