Bacon cheeseburger bubble up casserole

July 11, 2015

I enjoyed making my bacon cheeseburger pie so much that I thought I would change it up a little. This bubble up casserole is simply delicious! Super easy to make and I promise you the whole family will enjoy this simple dish. Makes 6 generous servings at 7 smart points or 6 points plus each.

Bacon cheeseburger bubble up casserole
Recipe type: Main meals
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 6
7SP blue, green & purple...6pp/serving
  • 1 7.5oz package pillsbury biscuits (in the 4 value pack) If you cant find that size you can buy the bigger pack and weigh out, for those that can't find pillsbury products, try using pizza dough, however the points may be higher.
  • 1 lb cooked lean ground beef
  • 4 slices cooked low point bacon (I use Oscar Mayer)
  • ⅔ cup light shredded cheese
  • ¼ cup ketchup
  • ¼ cup mustard (I used a honey dijon)
  • 2 Tbsp bread crumbs
  • ½ cup diced onions
  1. Cook both your ground beef and bacon on the stove, drain fat.
  2. Preheat oven to 350F, spray a 9x13 casserole dish.
  3. Cut up your 10 small pillsbury biscuits into 8 pieces each, spread evenly in the bottom of the casserole dish. Some ovens vary, so if you want you can pop the dough pieces that are in the dish in oven for about 5-10min to assure they cook all the way through once mixture goes on top. (My oven is fine and does not require this step)
  4. In a bowl mix your ground beef, ketchup, mustard, diced onion, bread crumbs, 2 pieces of your bacon, chopped up (leave other 2 pieces aside) and ⅓ cup cheese (leave other ⅓ cup aside)
  5. Spoon meat mixture onto the dough pieces in your dish. Bake in oven for 20 minutes. Top with remaining cheese and bacon and return to oven for additional 10 minutes.
  6. Serves 6 at 7sp on all 3 MyWW programs or 6pp per serving.
  7. Nutritional info, per serving.. Calories 249... Fat 7.6g... Saturated fat 3.2g... Carbs 22.6g... Fiber 1.1g... Sugars 4.7g... Protein 23.2g

    Have you made the Bacon Cheeseburger without breadcrumbs before? Was curious if it really changed it? (I want to make this tonight but, I forgot to get bread crumbs!)

    Absolutely yummy! Had this for dinner along with some salad and roasted califlower. I am sure it was just a little bit higher in points because I am a bit of a purist when it comes to cheese and chose regular cheese. Still this was yummy. Consequently I garnished with some pickles on top of it to make it more of a cheeseburger type meal, lol

    Really delicious! I would add to the instructions just to brown or bake dough prior to adding in the mixture of meat. Mine came out super doughy. The second time around with that extra step came out awesome!

    What kind of ketchup did you use? I used Heinz & it’s giving me a different point value.

      Yes Heinz.. maybe it is a different ingredient that your getting a higher point value on?

    Hi I can’t wait to try this. However when I enter the ingredients into the WW app I get 8 smart points (which is still reasonable!) Would you mind comparing so I can see where I need to adjust if I can? Biscuits 22 points for 7 ounces, 10 for lb of ground beef, 5 for 4 slices of bacon, 7 for 2/3 cup cheese, 3 for ketchup, 1 for mustard and 2 for breadcrumbs

      Hi Gina, the biscuits I use (Great value, 7.5 oz pack since pillsbury did away with them, these come in a 4 pack, there is 10 small biscuits in each roll) anyway they are 17SP for the whole roll

    I just made this and it smells AMAZING! The only issue is that once I put everything in the recipe builder it says the points for the biscuits alone are over 30! I used one 7.5 oz can of Great Value Homestyle Biscuits since I can’t find the Pillsbury ones. Are those the ones you used? Thanks, I love all your recipes! 🙂

      Hi, your not entering the right biscuits, the 7.5oz cans (10 small biscuits) is 17Sp, not sure where your getting 30 but if the App is telling you that it’s wrong.. are you buying the 4 value pack ones??

    Have you ever adopted your bubble ups to be made in the crock pot? I really want to make this for dinner, but I get home so late with kids activities, etc, that I can’t start the process when I get home. Was thinking it would be interesting to try in the crockpot.

        I tried it in the crockpot! The biscuits were a little doughy.. I also put the ground beef in uncooked since it had all day to cook but that adds a lot of points because you can’t drain the grease 😬 I think this one is a prep ahead of time and freeze so you can throw in the oven if you are on a time crunch! But my family loves it and when we made it as instructed it turned out perfect

    I just made this tonight and I used 3 large Pillsbury grand southern style biscuits because i couldn’t find a 10.5 ounce package. It was 16 sp for 3 large biscuits. I used one pound of Laura’s Lean beef 92% (it was on sale) and yikes it was 16 sp. So anyway for me the recipe was 9 sp, because it also charged me 3 sp for the bread crumbs. But it was very good! Would make again maybe with ground turkey for lower point value.

    I just found your site and am looking at your recipes ….they look amazing! I see from comments that you calculate all the nutrition info in MFP and put that info into the WW app to calculate the points. When you do this, are you including the nutrition info for the items that WW considers 0 points such as the veggies?

      Hi Bernice, I actually use both the WW recipe builder on the App and MFP because WW app does not give us nutritional info, and no I don not incl fruits/veggies when building a recipe in MFP

      I did a Bacon Cheeseburger (with Bergamon Cheese) Stroganoff Bubble Up Bake with a maple bacon egg wash on the biscuits. (I used a maple bacon Clubhouse spice in the egg wash)
      This has turned out fantastic but with the added sauce, different cheese etc. it may be too ‘carby’ or ‘fatty’ for those who care to count. Otherwise I would tend to agree from just reading the recipe I decided to throw my own spin on it and it was not bland AT ALL

    I found this recipe via the Yummly site/app. Their numbers are way different. The carb and fiber count are the only things I care about. Was all set to try this until I finally got the app to show me the instructions.. Which brought me to your page. Wow what a difference,
    Yummly’s 6 carbs turned into 22+ carbs.. Eeeek!
    Knew it sounded too good to be true!
    Sounds like it would be super yummy, but too yummy for this old diabetic gal! Lol

    To all who found this recipe and are NOT counting points at this time…. I made the points all out of whack I’m sure, but I did a Bacon Cheeseburger (with Bergamon Cheese) Stroganoff Bubble Up Bake with a maple bacon egg wash on the biscuits. (I used a maple bacon Clubhouse spice in the egg wash)

    This has turned out fantastic but with the added sauce, different cheese etc. it may be too ‘carby’ or ‘fatty’ for those who follow your recipes to a T.

    I found this dry, maybe next time I’ll use half the biscuit dough. Great taste though. Maybe drizzle a little concoction of fat free mayo mixed with a bit of pickle juice over it. Most burgers have mayo and pickles!

      Hi Anna, you used the right sized biscuits right? Sometimes people buy the bigger packs without realizing and that will make it dry.. just a thought.. Yes I know lots of people that top this one with pickles 🙂

    Hi all the way from rainy england.
    I’ve googled how to make a biscuit as we don’t have then here. Am I right in thinking you put the biscuit in as raw mixture?
    Failing that I wonder if an english scone would work?

      Hi Carole, you might have used the large size biscuits, the one I use is 7.5 oz with 10 small biscuits, 17SP for the whole package, if your package was larger that will add the extra points for sure, I enter everything as-is into the WW App and give the values I get based on the products I use, if someone uses something different it is out of my control as far as the point count goes

      Hi Liz, FYI I get picky haha I have one of those too, she’s 17 now but still extremely picky.. depends how picky they are, they are not too strong tasting in the recipe since it is only calling for 2 Tbsp of each, I do not like mustard and I can’t really pick it up, you could swap it out for maybe a little BBQ sauce if they like that?
