"It is not known where this recipe originated, but it has been used as a hot dish on outings and potlucks for at least 30 years. Rice and ground beef in tomato sauce, baked under a layer of shredded cheese. A great way to feed several with hamburger, and easy to keep on hand ingredients. Leftovers can be made into quick roll-ups by microwaving in a tortilla." — WGADSTAR

This recipe would be something that my grandma from the Ozarks would make. It was hearty, flavorful and easy to make. Bacon and its grease isn't an ingredient that I cook with often, while watching my family's fat intake, but it sure makes this combo especially yummy. I will make this again, especially if I'm having my inlaws over for dinner.
I prepared it as written, and added some ClubHouse TexMex seasoning, but we still found it bland. It needs something else. It was okay, but not very exciting. I will have to tweak it if I make it again.
Very hardy dish. I pretty well followed the recipe but made a few changes. I regret to say I forgot to add the bacon, I didn't realize it until the cheese was sprinkled on. I added a can of corn and a can of black beans (rinsed and drained). I am a big fan of tomato products so I used 2 cans of diced tomatoes with chilies. When adding salt and pepper I added a few more spices. I threw in some cumin, chili powder and a little dried red peppers. Ended up with a little zip to the flavor. I will make this again.
Yummy, yummy, yummy. This was terrific. If you really like bacon, though, and don't want to add the bacon fat drippings, I'd add more pieces of bacon (crumbled) instead. I also added a bit of Worcestershire for flavour but then I love Worcestershire. Will definitely make again!
It didn't tell me whether or not to drain the tomatoes, so I did, and it turned out pretty dry. The reheats are even drier! Just needs a little tweaking I guess.
good, easy, but not anything to go super crazy about. Take some leftovers and scramble an egg and combine in a flour tortilla. Would make it again
With a few small changes this recipe was reminescent of hash. I used 2 cups of brown rice (left over from previous night). Omitted the bell pepper and can of diced tomatoes. Instead I used an envelop of onion soup mix along with 2 beef boullion cubes and 3 cups of water. After browning the bacon and beef, I added the remaining ingredients and placed in a Crockpot to simmer for several hours. I also used a dash or two of Mrs. Dash. More like a thick soup with the cheddar melting over the bowel... VERY good!
This made a huge portion. I reduce the meat to 1 pound of ground turkey. I served it with seasoned salt. Excellent!
