My grandma used to make this and it was always a hit. She uses American cheese, but I make it with mozzarella. Very easy and yummy!

My family loved it. I modified it by adding onions, bell pepper and a couple dashes of worcestershire sauce as well as using minute rice. I also went the mega easy route and made it a one skillet meal by melting the cheese on top of the dish on the stove. I did not use the oven. Even better "left-over"! Read More

It's rather bland as is. Adding a sauteed onion and celery and spices did make it better. I guess it's a good family style meal with children. I might make it again if I have children over. Read More

Great quick meal. My brother even likes this. Every now and again I will add a can of Rotel instead of plain diced tomatos. I also add one chopped onion. I don't put into the oven. I cook on top of the stove when it's done I put some cheddar cheese on top put the lid back on and let it melted. Read More

we had this a few nights ago and I loved it. My husband said it was basically like hamburger helper and was a little too tomatoey. But I like that it was home made and not from a box. I will definatly make again. Read More

This recipe was really good the only thing I had a problem with was the rice. It didn't cook in 15 minutes or 30 either. Luckily I had some chicken broth to add so it wouldn't boil down. I've made it again since then and made the rice separate. We love it. Read More

I had to make dinner in a hurry and I found this recipe and even though I only browned ground meat with pepper and put in a can of celery soup and let it cook for ten minutes and poured it over rice it was really tasty and only took about 20 minutes. I had cooked the rice in the rice cooker previously. I would never have thought to use a condensed cream soup with hamburger meat. I was really surprised how good it was and I skipped most of the ingredients and most of the steps. Hamburger jazz rocks!:) When I have more prep time I will make it the correct way. Thanks for sharing an easy and tasty recipe!;) Read More

This was very good. Had hamburger out and left over rice to use up. Used canned tomatoes with chipoltle and added minced onion garlic powder and a can of diced green chilies. Used the whole bag of mozzarella cheese (2 c ) we love cheese! Cooked it all in an electric skillet as I dan't have a stove Turned out great! Thank-you for sharing!!! Read More

I would give this a 5 star rating for taste. I used Rotel diced tomatoes with chilis to give it some kick. My husband liked it but I have to say it was not appetizing looking. I turned off the lights and used candles. That was better. I think if I make it again I will drain the tomatoes add an onion and cook the rice separately. Would help the look. Read More

Made this dish last night...fast easy and yummy. I did makes some changes to the recipe. 1 substituted a can of ro-tel 1/4 of diced tomatoes instead of JUST diced tomatoes. I had left over Pillsbury flaky biscuits so I cut them half and soaked the open part in melted butter...layered the biscuits (butter side up) on the top of the hamburger mix and layer of cheese. Baked at 450 degrees for around 5 minutes then hit it on broil in-order to brown for about 2 minutes. YUMMY!!! Read More
