    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.

    I stumbled upon this recipe looking for something I could make quickly for lunch with food I had in the pantry/refrigerator. This one fit the bill. Plus, we love bacon cheeseburgers and pasta and figured they couldn't you couldn't go wrong if you put them together - and I was right. This was pretty tasty - I added a little more cheese than directed, but other than that followed the recipe exactly (using the optional black pepper, omitting the optional ketchup). Oh, and I used tri-colored rotini pasta instead of elbow macaroni as that was what I had on hand. Good stuff, thanks for posting.

    I had to substitute canadian bacon because that's what I had and I used turkey instead of beef, but it was delicious. Almost TOO delicious. We had 2nd helpings and fell over like polar bears. Simple recipe!

    EXCELLENT dish...very comforting! I got a thumbs up from both sons, and my parents! I substituted egg noodles for the macaroni, because that is what I had on hand, already opened that needed to be used up. It worked well. I didn't add any salt, because there was enough sodium in the soup for me. It tastes very similar to a recipe I made years ago from a Quick Cooking or Taste of Home magazine. I will make this again! Made for ZWT3 Zingo.

    Well this is excellent and a big hit with my family! I cooked my bacon using Recipe# 173076 which worked great. I also used jar tomato sauce instead of the soup. Next time may add more cheese. All together a great meal for my family - will make again (may try it with ground turkey if I can get it by everyone...) Thanks for the post!
