"Definitely a keeper! I admit I had my doubts as I put all of the different ingredients together, but what a surprise. Yes! It's like bacon cheeseburgers. I ate mine with a pickle in it."

"Great quick dinner. The skillet reminded me of a taco casserole but without the taco seasoning or a hamburger casserole."
