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 7 freestyle smart points each, you can swap the ground beef for ground turkey or chicken to bring the points down.

    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…

    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!

      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.

    I can never get the biscuits to cook properly. They’re always still doughy. And if I put them back in the get harder on top, but still doughy in the bottom.

    My family likes it but we usually have to scrape away some of the biscuit.

    This was delicious but realistically it’s not serving 9 adults. Kids maybe but not adults. Changing servings to 5 makes it 16 points. It was heavenly but 1lb if meat isn’t feeding 9 ppl.

      Hi Karen, it is 9 servings because of the 9 biscuits used.. nowhere do I state that 1 serving is plenty for 1, I just listed it as 9 servings as mentioned due to the biscuits, that would be like saying a recipe of cookies that makes 36 will feed 36 people, we all know most will have more than 1 cookie πŸ˜‰ serving size does not always mean that it will accommodate a family of that size, sorry you felt that way .. as an alternative you can swap out the ground beef for turkey/chicken to lower the points
