Ingredients you need to make Bacon Cheeseburger Casserole: 

  • 1 (7.5 oz) package Great Value biscuits in the 4-value pack. It’s 10 small biscuits per can. You can buy a different pack as long as you weigh out 7.5 oz of biscuit dough for the recipe. Otherwise, it will change the points. 
  • 1 lb 95% lean ground beef 
  • 4 slices Oscar Meyer center-cut bacon
  • 2/3 cup light or reduced-fat shredded cheese
  • 1/4 cup sugar-free ketchup. G Hughes is a good brand.
  • 1/4 cup mustard 
  • 2 Tbsp bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup diced onions


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F and spray a 9×13 dish with pam spray. 
  2. Cook the lean ground beef on the stove until fully cooked, then drain off the fat. Salt and pepper the ground beef while it’s cooking to start layering flavor into the dish. Do not rinse ground beef! 
  3. While ground beef is cooking, microwave the 4 slices of bacon until crispy. 
  4. Cut up the 10 Pillsbury biscuits into 8 pieces each then spread evenly in the bottom of the casserole dish. 
  5. In a bowl, mix the cooked ground beef, ketchup, mustard, diced onion, bread crumbs, 2 pieces of your chopped bacon (leave other 2 pieces aside), and 1/3 cup cheese (leave other 1/3 cup aside).
  6. Spoon this mixture onto the dough pieces in your dish. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes. Top with remaining cheese and bacon and return to oven for additional 10 minutes.

How many ww points in Bacon Cheeseburger Casserole?

  • 95% Lean Ground Beef 19 points
  • Center Cut Bacon 4 points
  • Light Shredded Cheese 7 points
  • Sugar-Free Ketchup 0 points
  • Mustard 0 points
  • Breadcrumbs 2 points
  • Onion 0 points

8 points per serving based on the ww app recipe creator.  

If you’re using an older version of WW, check out these points below. 

  • 7 personal points or 7SP.
  • All 3 MyWW programs-
  • 6 points plus per serving.

Need a change-up in the ww points? Here are variations: 

  • Add pickles! To make this more like a traditional cheeseburger, add some diced pickles after it’s baked. 
  • Take out the breadcrumbs, and save a few points. Breadcrumbs help prevent the casserole from being too dry, but as long as you make sure to stick with the baking time and not go too long, the casserole will work just fine without them. 
  • Try making this with WW Two Ingredient Dough instead of the biscuits. It will save you quite a bit of points! Just make sure to pre-bake the dough pieces for 7-10 minutes before adding the meat mixture on top. 
  • Decrease the points by using lean ground turkey instead of beef. It won’t give the same classic bacon cheeseburger flavor, but it will still be a delicious dinner casserole.

Tips and Tricks for Making Bacon Cheeseburger Casserole

    • Some ovens vary, so you may want to cook the dough pieces for about 7 min to ensure they cook all the way through once the mixture goes on top. 
    • You can save some dinner prep time by preparing the entire casserole the night before. Follow all of the steps up until the point of cooking. Cover the dish well with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. Take the casserole out of the fridge the next day when you’re ready to bake. Let it come to room temperature while the oven pre-heats. Bake as directed. 
    • Make ahead and freeze version: Instead of making this recipe in a 9×13 casserole dish, make into 12 servings in a muffin tin. Make sure to use muffin tin liners for easy clean up and storing. After you’ve made the 12 bacon cheeseburger casserole muffins, let them cool, and store them in a freezer Ziploc bag. When you’re ready to eat, grab two muffins and pop in the microwave for 1-2 min.
  • Crockpot version: if you want this ready to eat when you get home, you can use the crockpot! Just make sure to drain the cooked beef very well before adding it to the crockpot. Too much grease will cause it to be soggy. It will take about 4 hrs on low in the crockpot.

  • 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.

(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)

  1. 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?

    1. 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

    1. 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

  2. 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?

    1. 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?

    1. 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

  3. I love the flavor of this and mine turned out well. The picture makes the biscuits seem like “a 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!

    1. 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 🙂

  4. 5 stars
    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!

    1. 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

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

    1. 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.
