Sloppy joe casserole

November 22, 2015

Sloppy joe is comfort food at it’s best.. not to mention easy peasy! I thought it would be fun to put a little twist on it and instead of the same old meat on a bun, this casserole is a simple solution for sprucing it up. πŸ™‚ It takes very little time to prepare and I am sure it will be a family favorite.. The garlic biscuits on top are simply scrumptious.. Makes 9 servings at 5 points plus or 7 smart points each.

    I am feeling very frustrated I made this tonight and added broccoli because I needed some veg but when I create the recipe on weight watchers it says it’s like 13 pp a serving…what am I doing wrong?

      Hi Cassie.. I wouldn’t trust the App too much right now, they are still working out a lot of kinks.. also adding broccoli should not increase points.. When I input the nutritional info into the new calculator for smart points I get 7sp, for points plus its 5pp.. Sorry for your frustration ..

      Hi Michelle, I have had a few people in Australia ask about the pillsbury, unfortunately they don’t carry it, I always suggest people look at the website to see if they can compare it to anything, in some cases pizza dough might work if it is thinned out.. hope that helps…

    L9ve this site. So grateful to you and your help! Okay questions, – reduced calorie margarine? What do you use.. the only thing in my life I have ever used is butter!
    I haven’t a clue what to use here.. help?
    Gratefully Yours,

      Hi Kat, I use Becal light.. It may depend on where you live and what is available to you as far as brand goes, you can use butter it just might increase points a little..Thanks for your kind words πŸ™‚

        Thank you! I have never seen this but some said I could us brummel it’s like a light margarine using some yogurt. Going to try it. What you use- how many points for a Tablespoon or teaspoon?

    For anyone who wants to add more veggies–I processed 8 button mushrooms and 4 good sized florets of fresh broccoli really fine in the food processor, chopped about 3/4 cup of zucchini and 1/2 cup green pepper and added all of that to the skillet while browning the meat. I like to slip in as many veggies as I can! I also used a 5-count can of biscuits, quartered them and laid them evenly on top of the casserole. I did not put the butter mixture on top. It turned out awesome, and my kids never even knew they were eating their veggies. I went ahead and plugged it all in on the WW site as a new recipe to get the points right for my own count. It was about 10 points per serving, so I’m not sure how you were able to get it down to 7, especially including the butter mixture on top. At any rate, my family loved it. Thanks for the recipe!

      How many servings did you have, 9 small servings like mine? I don’t use the recipe builder on App, I use my fitness pal, build my recipe and then use nutritional numbers in my WW calculator.. Glad you enjoyed it and great way to get veggies in πŸ™‚

        What would the sp be if you used ground turkey instead of ground beef?

          Reply Drizzle September 5, 2016 at 2:37 pm

          Hi, I never cook with ground Turkey, based on the WW App 1 lb raw extra lean beef is 12SP and if it’s 99% fat free ground turkey 1 lb raw is 6SP hope that helps

    Can I find your recipes somehow on my fitness pal? I see you use them to calculate, but when I enter ‘drizzlemeskinny’, nothing comes up.

      I would think so, I personally have not frozen the recipes with pillsbury in them so I can’t say for sure..

  • Reply Erin December 6, 2016 at 3:36 pm

    I’m calculating the nutritional information you provided and it’s telling me it’s 8 SP per serving, not 7. This should be updated so people have the accurate numbers πŸ™‚ Thanks!

      Hi Erin, please know that products vary, we could live in different countries (I am in Canada) if your in the U.S then we may use a different product that could easily affect the points, especially only by 1 point, I go based of my ingredients, I can’t update it just because you say it’s 8, I have to go based on what I used, the WW app recipe builder is not the same everywhere either..

    Hello! I am wondering about halting the recipe. Do you know if i open the can of biscuits and use half one night for half this recipe, and then the other half of the can of biscuits the next night for half of another one of your bubble up recipes……do you think the biscuits would be okay or too dried out if stored in a tupperwear in the fridge for the night? Its just my husband and i and id like to not have to eat leftovers so much when making these recipes that make too much for us.

      Hi Leah, if it is just one night in the fridge I think the biscuits will be fine, maybe in a sealed container, I wouldn’t let them sit longer than that though
