I have found a great recipe! I can't believe that each bite tastes just like a bacon cheeseburger. Always a hit with the family. I also add in some ketchup to the sauce as we're ketchup fanatics!

This was definite 5-stars-with my modifications! After reading comments about it being a bit bland, I decided to add more seasonings. This is what I used -- 1 t. creole seasoning, 1/4 t. garlic salt, 1/4 t. black pepper, and a pinch of dried Italian Seasoning. My thick-sliced bacon was really salty so I did not add any extra salt. I used an 8-oz can of tomato sauce instead of the ketchup. I stirred in 1 c. shredded cheddar in the mixture, and topped it off with another cup. Also, I did not add my cooked bacon until the end, right before topping with the remaining cheese as I thought it might get soggy..eew! This skillet meal is complete with a simple salad or veggie and some crusty bread or cornbread.

i made this last night ... i am giving it 3 stars. to make it have more of a true cheeseburger taste i added yellow mustard and ketchup. then i also topped it with a little more cheese and ketchup on top. also i did not have tomato soup so i just used tomato sauce and i did not have enough sharp cheddar so i added velveta. came out yummy. it is an easy weeknight meal !! thanks for the recipe!

Ok. I do not usually buy or cook with condensed soups. So how the heck did I end up with so many cans of tomato soup in my pantry?!? I picked this recipe because it looked easy and tasty. It did not let me down. I sprinkled with pepper, but not salt, and added 3 McDonald's packets of ketchup. (No, I have no idea how much that is. LOL) It seemed very bland to me, yet oddly satisfying. I returned from scrimmage to discover it was gone. No mean feat since my husband never eats, and the kids prefer snacks. Is it my favorite food ever? Nah - not by a long shot. But I will probably return to it at least once in the process of using up all of those blasted soups.
