    It was amazing. I recommend this to anyone who is catering to 4+ people.

    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.

    It took a long time to prep, but it turned out great! My husband and teenage boys all went back for seconds!

    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.
    Great, but it needs a tad more salt. 1 tbsp vs tsp. in the meat step.
