Really good. Go ahead and use a whole pound of meat. I had cooked a pound of ground turkey and put half of it in the recipe, but didn't know what to do with the other half. I just dumped the rest in. Next time I will either add a little more ketchup to the mix, or dollop a little on the tops. Husband said I could make these again so they must be good.

Awesome appetizer! Could have a little more kick for my liking, but when serving to guests and kids, they're perfect. If I make them just for us, I'll probably make them with salsa instead of ketchup. Thanks for a great recipe!
