    We found this nothing to write home about, given the ingredients, I would prefer to make something else with my hamburger, cheese, and kraft dinner, and mushroom soup, sorry longhornmel, especially after such good reviews, however my dh says if you add enough rooster sauce its edible enough

    DH enjoyed this, a very quick and simple meal. I used ground turkey and 3 Cheese mac/cheese mix. This is a blander, milder recipe that would be a great base to add other seasonings and veges, very adaptable. We did add shredded cheddar cheese to the top before coming out of the oven.

    This is a great idea. I used 1/2 lb hamburger and Velveeta shells and cheese mix. Very good, thanks for sharing!

    We added a little cheese to the top of this the second time we made it. This is so super easy and tastes so good. The first recipe we've made twice! Tastes just as good for lunch the next day and everyone in the office asks what is that, it smells so good!
