    The texture was good and so was the balance of noodles and meat. A little too much meat for my preference and the cheese wasn’t as flavorful as I wanted it to be, but all in all good 👍

    We make this regularly. We've even got friends of ours making it pretty consistently. Overall, I'd recommend it to just about anyone as a nice comfort-food kinda dinner!

    For a newbie cook, it was very labor intensive but for my first meal ive ever cooked from scratch family gave it two thumbs up. For me personally Ill take out the mustard or do less mustard taste. BUT it was worth it!!

    turned out well. took a bit long to get on the table for my first time, but it's worth making again. i would probably leave the bacon out next time.

    It was amazing! A lot of steps but it was simple steps like building a lasagna. My family gave it 2 thumbs up and want me to put it on our normal meal menu. The whole pan was ate at dinner with no leftovers. Also, I didn’t cook the bacon in slices and then crumble. I sliced the bacon and then cooked it til brown and crispy. I think the pieces of bacon were bigger this way and you had the nice crunching bite among the macaroni and burger.

    Used a different pasta than elbow macaroni and used shredded cheese instead of grated.

    As others noted, it took a while to prepare. However, it turned out really well. The meat concoction was particularly tasty, and all of the different elements went together to make a really hardy meal.

    Turned out well. Didn't take as much time as the other reviewers said. Good casserole dinner when you aren't sure what to make. Everyone ate it and there was no fighting.

    Turned out good, but there are so many steps involved. Make sure you have a lot of time.
