“I was stretched for time so wanted something easy & fast for dinner this recipe was the result. Very tasty. I don't usually buy precooked hamburger but had this one on hand to try and for an emergency it is quite good. I won't even look at what prservatives may be in it. Make this as hot or as mild as you want. I like to sprinkle parmesan chees ovr it at the table. Nice served with a green salad and a crusty roll”
