Google "lazertran transfer paper" for a commercial product designed for this purpose. It creates a water-slide decal that will bond to any smooth surface, and can also be baked on in your home oven. There are a number of good tutorials online showing different techniques usin the product as well. The only downside is that the image is not food-safe or dishwasher-safe.
For food-safe items, you might need to screen-print the plate using vitreous inks that are certified food-safe, or possibly apply a food-safe varnish over the decals.

The wife and niece came back from Disney with these a year or so ago.   If they glaze over it then it's pretty durable and you can actually use it.  Some of the are not glazed and are probably meant for decoration only.

The problem with dinner plates is that they aren't flat. That makes printing onto them a Pain. You also have to make sure you're printing with food-safe inks.
