    Great Recipe! Wanted to try something different then just plain hamburgers, and came across this. It was fantastic! I see some of the reviews say to eat this warm..... I had it at room temperature, and then cold out of the fridge the next day. It was was great. I do not think warm is they way to go with mayo.

    I just came across this recipe and decided to make it for my husband and I for lunch. I get tired of just hamburgers when it gets so hot and decided to try something different. I read the reviews first and also served it hot. I used miracle whip instead of mayonnaise. I added about 1/3 cup shredded cheese (cheddar blend) to tone down the miracle whip. I served it with a pasta salad and didn't get any complaints!That means it's a keeper!

    oops, I forgot to add one thing...I add the other ingredients to the cooked meat while it is hot. We like it better that way :)

    I had found this recipe in a local utility company magazine a while back and had to try it. My daughter and son-in-law live with me and I thought the son-in-law would hate it since he is one of those "picky" eaters. He said "there is one thing wrong with this" and I thought "oh here it goes". I asked what was wrong with it and he replied "you should have made more"! We love it and always make it as the recipe states. Would not change a thing.

    We like these... hot! The mixture itself doesn't look very appetizing but it has a very good taste. I wouldn't eat them cold though.

    On a "what should we make for supper", came across this recipe, and am sure glad I did. We both enjoyed it very much; used sweet pickle relish in place of dill pickles, and added dash of dill weed. This is a definite keepeer!! Thank you for sharing***Sincerely, Joscey from Oxford, NY

    This recipe really sounded good but the end result was well, NASTY! I'm sorry but I gave them one star and would never make them again.
