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.

  • 1 7.5 oz 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
  • 2/3 cup light shredded cheese
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup mustard I used a honey dijon
  • 2 Tbsp bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup diced onions


  • Cook both your ground beef and bacon on the stove, drain fat.
  • Preheat oven to 350F, spray a 9x13 casserole dish.
  • 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)
  • 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 1/3 cup cheese (leave other 1/3 cup aside)
  • 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.
  • Serves 6 at 7 personal points or 7SP on all 3 MyWW programs, 6 points plus per serving.

    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!)

    • Drizzle Reply

      I have always added them but I think it will be fine without them πŸ™‚

  2. 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

    • Drizzle Reply

      Glad you enjoyed it πŸ™‚ I too love all types of cheeses.. but I usually let points win over taste when it comes to cheese (well most of the time lol)

  3. 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!

    • Drizzle Reply

      Glad you enjoyed it Brittney, It may be different ovens, I never have any issues nor do a lot of people, but a few have said what you said.. I will add that in thanks πŸ™‚

  4. Looks Yummy – will have to try this one! I see a lot of your recipes I want to try, but it would make it so much easier to save them if you had a pinterest link to save them.

    • Drizzle Reply

      I do have a pinterest link, either at the top of the page or the bottom

      I make mine in a 9×13 dish and cut into 6 equal servings, sorry I don’t weigh it out

  9. How long would this stay good in the fridge?? Or is it ok to freeze?

    • Drizzle Reply

      It will be fine in the fridge a couple of days, and it should freeze ok πŸ™‚

  10. Tammie Armstrong Reply

    I used crescent roll sheet, added bread & butter pickles used swiss, one layer with the cheese on top, delish!

    • Drizzle Reply

      Sounds awesome! So glad you enjoyed it Tammie πŸ™‚

  11. So so good!! Husband and kid approved. I added pickles ? I’m in United States and got a few more smart points for our servings but still worth it!

    • Drizzle Reply

      Sweet! Glad the family enjoyed… Yeah products and brands can vary in points

    • Drizzle Reply

      I think 6, I don’t have the package in front of me sorry

  12. Leslie Gonzalez Reply

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

    • Drizzle Reply

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

      • Loved the recipe and made it for family dinner on sunday. Everyone enjoyed it.

        • Drizzle Reply

          Hi Kim, I am so glad everyone enjoyed the recipe πŸ™‚

  13. 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

    • Drizzle Reply

      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

  14. 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! πŸ™‚

    • Drizzle Reply

      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??

    • Drizzle Reply

      Yes adding more will help, I don’t find it dry, some add pickles if you like them and that might help, or tomatoes?

  15. Molly Elazier Reply

    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.

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Molly, sorry I have never tried a bubble up in the crock pot, I am not too sure if that would work for the biscuits?? I’d be curious to know myself πŸ˜‰

      • 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

        • Drizzle Reply

          Thanks for sharing Heather πŸ™‚ So glad the family enjoys it

  16. 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.

    • Drizzle Reply

      Glad you enjoyed it Dayna, I know products vary in points, I can only go off what I use and go from there πŸ™‚

  17. 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?

    • Drizzle Reply

      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

  18. This was an amazing recipe! I tried it with ground turkey minus the bread crumbs and got less points! BONUS! Served with homemade fries! YUMMY! Thanks!

  19. I made this tonight and it was amazing!! Will be trying this and many other bubble up recipes again. Any tips on storing leftovers?

    • Drizzle Reply

      So glad you enjoyed it, It should be ok in the fridge in a container for a day or two, otherwise I would freeze it

  20. Dory L Miller Reply

    Thought we’d try something new! Won’t try this one again, very bland. The family did not enjoy this one, got in four bites maybe before we had enough!

    • Drizzle Reply

      So sorry you did not enjoy it, I know this is a big hit with many but different strokes for different folks πŸ˜‰ in a perfect world you’d please everyone πŸ™‚

    • 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 β€˜carby’ or β€˜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

  21. 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

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Jaci, sorry about that, I have no connections with Yummly and no idea why they put wrong information

  22. I wonder if you used the two ingredient dough (FF Greek yogurt and flour) it would be okay instead of biscuits?

    • Drizzle Reply

      I have seen some try it and say it does not bake as well as the biscuits, but you can play around with it if you have the patience πŸ˜‰

  23. 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.

    Thanks so much for posting! My whole family demolished this!! Prepped and cleaned up in 20 minutes, and they gobbled it up faster than I could sit down. So GOOD!!!

  24. 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!

    • Drizzle Reply

      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 πŸ™‚

  27. Made this tonight, and it’s a big hit! I didn’t add the bread crumbs, and it turned out fine! Even my hubby liked it, and he’s not usually a fan of the biscuits!

  28. Have you tried this with ground chicken breast instead of the ground beef? We like your other β€œbubble up” recipes! Thanks

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Sheila, no I have not but I am sure it will be equally as delicious πŸ™‚ I am so glad you are enjoying the bubble ups

  29. This was amazing. My daughter ate half the dish before anyone else even got a chance. I will have to double it next time.

    Only change I made was to use crescent rolls as the base. (Not looking for any dietary recipes.. Just came across this and thought it seemed delicious). Quick, easy, and sooo yummy! Give it a try.

      Hi Mandy, your daughter seems like my kinda girl haha πŸ™‚ I am so glad you all enjoyed it!

    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?

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Anna, yes the biscuits are raw dough in a can and they bake into the mixture while in the oven, you could try a scone or even a lightened-up pizza dough

  32. Just made this and added it into the WW app. Came out to 9 points not 7. Was good. Will probably make again.

    • Drizzle Reply

      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

  33. Is there anything you can use in place of the ketchup and mustard? We have a picky eater. Or do you not really taste them?

    • Drizzle Reply

      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?

  34. Question….don’t have any fridge dough but i do have 2 ingredient dough…could i use that instead?

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi, you can try it, I know some have tried bubble ups with 2ID, it doesn’t bake quite the same but might be an ok alternative

  35. Jewel Johnson Reply

    I love the flavor of this and mine turned out well. The picture makes the biscuits seem like β€œa crust”. Do you pat your biscuit piece together to kinda form a solid crust? Mine are somewhat cooked into the mixture, but are pieces under the meat mixture for the most part. I used a 4pack of biscuits (6.+ oz) couldn’t find the 7+ that you recommended. Maybe that’s my prob and of course the pieces of biscuit don’t look like the picture. Thank you for a yummy recipe though!

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Jewel, yeah the biscuits are on the bottom for the most part, they kind of bake up into the casserole, so you are using 6oz worth of biscuits instead of the 7oz? Are you cutting them into enough pieces, for those using larger biscuits I suggest cutting them open in two, then cutting each half in 6, that way you will have enough small pieces of biscuits throughout the recipe .. I’m glad you still enjoyed the recipe πŸ™‚

  36. I love all the bubble up recipes! Thank you Kate! I do wonder if anyone has tried this with ground turkey? I usually never eat beef, but think it would work out!

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Martha, thank you for your kind words, I am so glad you are enjoying the recipes.. yes this will work out well with turkey, hope you enjoy it

  37. Would this recipe work ok to put together the night before and pop in the oven the next night after work?

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Lorie, I think it should be ok to make the night before, I’m not sure how the biscuits will hold up in the fridge once they are opened though.

  38. Can you tell me how many calories for the bacon? can’t get Oscar Mayer. Thanks, Susan
