With both bacon and ground beef, this hearty dish is a real crowd-pleaser. The recipe came from my grandmother, now in her 80s. I've learned so much from helping her in the kitchen. —Cathy McCartney, Davenport, Iowa

My husband is very much a bacon and colby cheese fella. Since we're empty nesters, will cut back recipe for 4 servings. I doubt very much there would be leftovers!

What a great way to do Lasagna! Bacon always makes everything better. Has anyone tried to freeze the second lasagna for later use?

This has been a family favorite ever since I made it. It is fast, easy and delicious! We call it the bacon cheeseburger lasagna.

This was good, and I'll make it again, but not on a regular basis.

This recipe is one of my family's favorites! It's not nearly as time-consuming as a regular lasagna, and my kids love the bacon and Colby flavors together as a delicious change! We had one of my son's friends to dinner tonight, and he made me promise to share the recipe with his mom! Yum!
