This is so easy and so good! It's going to become one of my favorite comfort foods! I added some garlic powder and some onion flakes to the ground beef when I browned it, just to give it a little more flavor for my tastes. Great quick and easy recipe! Thanks!

I first made this about 11 years ago or so. I was an 18 year old newly wed and I think it was on the back of the Minute Rice box. I absolutely love it. What I am trying to figure out now is how to make it with leftover white rice. I don't usually buy minute rice anymore. GREAT every day kind of meal!

This was a fabulous and easy meal to make that my kids and whole family loved!! I didn't quite have enough ketchup so I mixed what I had with BBQ sauce and it was excellent. Also I used spicy brown mustard and that was really good too. I will definatly be making this again thanks sherri35.

My family has been making this forever. We found it in a Kraft cookbook and have loved it ever since! It's really fast and easy and the ingredients are always on hand. We like to add chopped onion and cook it with the beef, it add some extra flavour. Also, we usually add extra cheese because we like it cheesey :)

This was pretty good and a great use of leftover rice. Sadly, our picky kids weren't thrilled with it though.

I first saw this recipe on the back of a Minute Rice box over ten years ago. It has been one of my favorite go-to dishes when I don't have much time to cook ever since because it's so fast and easy. It's also budget-friendly and my whole family loves it. I often jazz it up with some pickle juice in place of some of the water. I've used the juice from dill pickles, bread-and-butter pickles, and even sweet pickles and they all taste awesome. And what a great way to use up the leftover pickle juice that would normally get thrown out!! The pickle juice REALLY makes this dish taste like a cheeseburger. For another twist, I sometimes use barbecue sauce to replace some or all of the ketchup. Can't go wrong with this one!!

I added two stalks of celery, three carrots, an onion and garlic. It was very fast and the entire family enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing.

For kids, this is really a four star meal. It wouldn't rate well for a dinner party or anything, but my one and two year old both loved it. It was really quick and I always have everything on hand. I think the sweetness of the ketchup was a little much, but when you're two, it's an obvious plus. Don't kids smoother everything in ketchup anyway?! I made sure to salt and pepper the beef before I cooked it, and I added diced onions and about a tsp. of fresh garlic. You could easily add tomaotes, peppers, mushrooms, or carrots for a change, depending on what your family will eat. I did have to cook it for about 10 min. but it was worth the wait!

My husband and I are vegetarians. We substituted the 1 lbs of ground beef with a vegetarian substitute,Morningstar Farms® Meal Starters™ Grillers® Recipe Crumbles™. It turned out great and tasted delicious.
