Cheeseburger Skillet Dinner

This skillet dinner is doubly quick. The leftovers-if there are any-can be reheated to make a second meal as tasty as the first. —Karen Grimes, Stephens City, Virginia

    I'm a little confused as to why you would add additional cheddar cheese to this dish when there's cheese already in the macaroni diner mix. But I will try it just the same. Seems like a lot of cheese.

    This was super delicious and full of flavor! I love how easy it was to get together and put on the dinner table for my kids.

    I was skeptic of this at first but decided to try it. I was surprised that we all liked it. It is quick, quite affordable, tastes good & something different.

    In general I like all ingredients but together they didn't taste well to us... :(

    I loved this dish! My hubby was not a big fan but the kids were. I doubled the recipe but next time I will prob triple it just to make sure there are leftovers.
