An 8-ounce box should cost you a buck or less on sale.
It says on the box that the patty is made with chicken, pork, and beef which sounds a bit like a hot dog to me but I'd hazard it's the same meat patty as the ones used in Banquet's Salisbury Steak or Meatloaf. Same meat and texture, slightly different sauces. It's basically a ground hamburger steak.
I didn't like that the rice wasn't compartmentalized so that I could better control the amount of sauce I was eating rather than have it mix into my rice during cooking. The rice had bits of veggies mixed in but they don't add much if any flavor. The rice itself didn't turn out bad at all, with a moist even consistency that pleasantly surprised me.
