"This sounded simple so I made it and absolutely loved it! Even my picky 2 year old ate it."

"My husband usually hates skillet burgers because they're so dry. We have this often because they turn out nice and moist and have good flavor."

"I really thought the bean with bacon soup sounded a little funky, surprise! It was fantastic! It gave everything so much flavor, I was amazed! Hold the salt everywhere else though, that soup is salty. I would absolutely make this one again!"

"Sounds quite tasty, especially if one can get a reduced-sodium soup and make it with some lower fat ingredients."

"I'm very picky, but my husband made this anyway. I loved it. Will definitely have it again. We used 1 lb ground beef instead of two to make it a little on the smaller side!."
