"A fun bowl of cheeseburger taste! Had to use elbow macaroni because it's what I had, though it was still whole wheat so I didn't change the flavor that way. Also, the 96% lean ground beef I buy comes in pound packages, so I used 4 more ounces than the recipe called for. Otherwise, followed as written and I love it. I can see a day where I get a huge craving for it!"

"Packed with flavor and easy to put together for dinner for my busy family. I doubled the recipe and next time I may add some bacon as well."

"Absolutely disgusting! This is the first recipe I have tried via Taste of Home that I did not like. I'm thinking if I had not used the relish it may have tasted better but I really did not like this recipe.

I did follow the instructions as written. I will say this, my significant other said it was okay, he wasn't wowed by it and two days later we still have leftovers."

"Not a fan of the relish. I almost left it out and wish I would have. I added bacon, Worcestershire sauce and cut the mustard in half and used Dijon instead of yellow, which I think helped. One kid loved it but the second one would not touch it. My husband and mom liked it but agreed the relish was not necessary."
