"I am giving this 5 stars BUT I added Johnny's Seasoning to it and that's what made the huge difference. Even my 10 year old daughter said this was a "do-over"."

"I've been making this since my kids were little (now my Grandkids eat it) and it's a good basic recipe that you can tweak to your own tastes, as written it definitely needs jazzing up. I use 85/15 ground beef and brown it first by itself (no need to pour off any of the seasonings with the fat) then spoon off some but all of the fat. When I add the soups I also include 8 strips of thick sliced bacon which has been diced and cooked til crisp, 1 Tb yellow mustard, 1 tsp dill weed, 1/4 cup finely diced onion, 1/2 tsp granulated garlic, 1/2 tsp black pepper and 1/2 tsp Wrights liquid hickory smoke for a BBQ'd flavor. I Sprinkle seasoned salt to taste on the fries before putting them on the meat/soup mixture. After I dish mine up I put some ketchup on the fries and I think it tastes like the best diner comfort food ever."

"I was skeptical reading this recipe, but after all the positive reviews, I thought I would give it a try. Unfortunately, we didn't find it very tasty. The kids ate it, but was just all right. Also does not reheat well. I won't be making it again. i'm glad others enjoy it, though."

"@cwbuff2 If you think 90/10 is too greasy, you must never eat hamburger? You could use 93/7, Walmart has it all the time. But if you do be prepared for a tasteless meal.

I used frozen Arby's Curly Fries because they have a nice mixture of spices. Vidalia onion chopped up is always a good idea."

"One of my family's favorite quick meals since it first appeared in QC in May 1998! I've always used 1 to 1 1/2 lbs ground beef even when all of our six children were home. Just added a few more fries & a salad & dessert & it was plenty for all of us! Fast & easy!"

"I made this recipe for 2, so cut out 1 pound of hamburger and the mushroom soup. Added some minced onion and some shredded cheese before putting on the fries. Still made in a 9 X 13 pan."

"very good. I use tater tots instead of fries we like it better that way and I add some vegetables."

"This is quick, easy, and surprisingly good! I think, however, that it should stand 5-10 minutes after being taken out of the oven to solidify. Also, don't use hamburger which is too fatty, as the grease will make the dish too mushy."

"My family love this recipe. I changed it slightly by not using the cream of mushroom soup (my husband hate mushrooms). I replaced it with a can of creamed corn and a can of baked beans. It came out great!"
