"Made my house smell like heaven while it baked. Really easy and tasty. The only thing I would say is, the patties wouldn't hold together very well. Maybe I'll add some sort of binding agent like an egg? to the mix next time. And there will definitely be a next time!"

great in them."

"These were really good! I made them just as the recipe directed. My husband even commented on how they good they were! That means a lot!!! I made roasted rosemary potato wedges to serve with and it was a win-win meal!"

"I love this recipe, it's a different way to serve ground beef, it's fast, easy and economical. I stock up on canned spaghetti sauce on sale and this is a great way to use up my stockpile!"
