Bacon Cheeseburger Rice Recipe

My husband and I thought the original skillet dish lacked pizzazz, so we created this tastier version. I've had teenage nieces and nephews request the recipe after their first bite. —Joyce Whipps, West Des Moines, Iowa

MY REVIEW

I don't.care for the Bbq sauce. to SWEET I prefer spicy like org. Rotel!

MY REVIEW

This was GREAT! I doubled the recipe to have some to freeze. I used instant brown rice and it turned out just fine. I think it would be just as good with ketchup in lieu of the barbecue sauce.

MY REVIEW

Really good and very easy to make. I might omit the pickles as they didn't do a lot for us, but all in all this was simple and tasty.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 27, 2014

I thought this recipe would have significantly more flavor than it did. I even used a spicy BBQ sauce. Will not make again.

This is a go to recipe. When I bring leftovers to work, everyone stops and asks what smells so yummy. I've given out the recipe several times. Great comfort food!
