This really did taste like a cheeseburger. It makes a pretty good sized loaf. It wasn't too dry. In fact, there is plenty of liquid in the bottom of the pan. I did not change any ingredient and it turned out pretty good. We had it with salad and baked french-fries.

This was pretty good. It would have been better if I'd not picked up the wrong relish by mistake. :D That's just my opinion. My dh loved it even with the sweet relish.
