"I actually thought this recipe was too simple to be very good, but I was wrong! A quick and easy meal (we poured it over biscuits and mashed potatoes)."

"06/16/2015, Very good! Doubled the recipe for my family of five. Only used one can of mushrooms for double recipe. Added onion and garlic to meat while frying. Also added cayenne and crushed red pepper to taste. Wanted more spice but not more salt. And added a extra cup of milk to double recipe. 06/19/2015, did same today but added a cream of celery soup and green bell pepper to hamburger too."

"We enjoyed this dish very much. When I browned the meat I added chopped onions and garlic salt. I will definitely make this again."

"I really liked the "bones" of this recipe in that it sounded simple and filling, however, I knew this would not feed my family of 3 teenagers! i did use 1# 93% lean hamburger, 1 can health smart soup, added 2 cans of mushrooms, 1 cup Greek yogurt, a little extra bouillion, frozen peas, fresh cracked pepper and fresh parsley. Instead of mashed potatoes I served the "gravy" over baked potatoes. The result was great and filling. Will definitely make again and serve with a salad.

I think the recipe would have been a little bland without the adjustments."

"I remember this from my high school cafeteria. It's just as good now as it was then. I did add a little onion; but that was the only change I made to this really easy recipe."

"This is a winner for our family! The kids cleaned their plates and told me I could make this again! I really don't like hamburger, but I ate this and liked it. Will make again for sure, as it was very cheap to make!"
