Cheeseburger Rice - Yummy! Great side-dish. Made this by just adding things together. Brought it to work for a party & everyone loved it! My girlfriend now makes this as a side dish once a week by demand of her children... I'm sure there are many other things you can either add or omit to suit your taste.

It did taste kind of like cheeseburger but it didn't appeal to me. I wouldn't make it again.

Well, yes, it did taste like a cheeseburger, absolutely. So 5 stars for that, and for the ease of making. 5 stars for the way everyone ate it with "ooh this does taste like a cheeseburger" comments. 5 stars for the leftovers which were great in the sandwich maker. If you are looking for a cheeseburger-ish easy rice based dish (by the way I used normal basmati rice and it was great) then stop looking, you've found it.

DH really raved about this! I liked it because it was simple and used ingredients I usually have on hand. Thanks!
