Casseroles are such a fantastic dinner option. They are huge enough to feed a family or bunch of friends but usually yield plenty of leftovers. Any meal which is multiple meals is a winning recipe in my book!
They are also perfect when you don’t have time to cook dinner. If you prep it in the morning or the night before, you can just pop it in the oven for around 30 minutes before dinner. It stops you from coming home and eating junk food or a bowl of cereal that is not filling.
Casseroles are often full of creamy sauces though, which means they aren’t always diet-friendly. Luckily, we’ve created lots of casserole recipes here that do not involve heavy creams or tons of cheese! Here are 24 warming Weight Watchers casseroles for you to enjoy.
1. Taco Fiesta Bubble Up Casserole
One of the most popular recipes on the website, and for a good reason, this taco fiesta bubble-up casserole takes a meal requiring multiple serving dishes and puts it in one dish. It keeps all the delicious flavors of a taco dinner but serves six people from one casserole dish at only 254 calories per portion.
2. White Chicken Chili Bubble Up Casserole
Taking inspiration from white chicken chili tacos; this casserole combines shredded chicken with beans, corn, and green chili and mixed in a creamy sauce. The spices used are Mexican-inspired, and an indulgent addition of biscuits gives it that extra yum factor.
3. Chicken, Spinach, and Artichoke Bubble Up
The biscuits in this casserole give it that ‘bubble up’ quality and just happen to make it taste that extra bit more delicious. This particular bubble-up casserole takes its flavor inspiration from spinach and artichoke dip. The chicken is added to give the meal a bit more substance.
4. Cinnamon French Toast Bubble Up Casserole
This delicious brunch casserole is made with pieces of biscuit coated in cinnamon sugar and baked in the oven. Miraculously with only 136 calories per serving, it feels super gluttonous but is okay in moderation!
5. Turkey Dinner Bubble Up
This casserole is themed around a Thanksgiving turkey dinner. Oh, I bet that’s piqued your interest! It essentially uses all the ingredients used for stuffing and adds turkey, potatoes, and a few other veggies. Biscuit pieces are pre-baked in a dish with the ingredients on top and baked until it bubbles up.
6. Chicken Parmesan Bubble Up
Very chicken-heavy, this casserole provides you with a healthy portion of protein. Arrange the biscuit pieces at the bottom, then the mixture of shredded chicken, vegetables, cheese, and tomato sauce as topping. It’s all baked together until it bubbles into a delicious cheesy chicken dinner.
7. Chicken Sloppy Joe Bubble Up
Chicken Sloppy Joe Bubble Up is a comfort food casserole with abundant cozy flavors like Worcestershire sauce, mustard, and brown sugar.

All you have to do is make the sauce and pour it over biscuit pieces for the bubble-up effect, that’s it!
8. Asian Chicken Bubble Up
Experience completely different flavors from what you’d normally expect from a casserole with this Asian-inspired dish which adds red cabbage on top for a raw crunch. Teriyaki chicken and sriracha are the main flavors, so if you like them, you’ll love this!

11. Chicken Caesar Bubble Up
Chicken Caesar salads are pretty delicious when made well. However, they often aren’t all that filling. This bake takes on the flavors of the iconic salad but gives it a bit more substance for when you need something more satisfying. In line with the salad; it doesn’t require many ingredients and is very simple to make.
12. Loaded Nacho Bubble Up
Having nachos for dinner is frowned upon by some people. I don’t know who these people are, either. But let’s save from judging anyone, and this recipe turns the delectable appetizer into an entree. It’s also, of course, completely Weight Watchers-friendly. Focusing on the vegetables and meat and going easy on the cheese helps a lot!
13. Bubble Up Lasagne
Lasagne is one of those tasty dishes that are, in theory, easy to make. Is it me, or does it also take you a decade to prepare everything? Put the ingredients together and then bake it. This way the time of layering is eliminated, the recipe is quickly ready and doesn’t sacrifice any of the great taste.
14. Stove Top Chicken Stuffing Casserole
One more hearty and comforting meal that enables you to stick to your healthy lifestyle. If you think stuffing is not for Weight Watchers, think again with this casserole. The lean protein from the chicken, in addition to all the veggies, helps keep it healthy, and the stuffing keeps it delicious!
15. Turkey Sloppy Joe Tater Tot Casserole
A breakfast-to-dinner kind of casserole. This dish is super tasty, and yes, completely Weight Watchers friendly. It takes the filling of a Sloppy Joe (using turkey for a lean protein choice), tops it with tater tots, and finally sprinkles cheese on top before baking in the oven. Delicious!
16. Shrimp Alfredo Pasta Casserole
Why make a pasta casserole when you could simply cook it on the stovetop more quickly? The beauty of casseroles is that they can be prepared in advance and then put in the oven and forgotten. Yes, this shrimp alfredo could be eaten freshly made. But, if you know you have a busy day and won’t have time to cook a proper dinner the following night, it can be prepped and ready to be put in the oven when you get home.
17. Bacon Cheeseburger Casserole
The best diet foods are the ones that do not sound anything like diet food, Bacon cheeseburgers – for example! This casserole keeps the classic flavors but cuts the calories to 250 per serving, versus the average 800 you’d consume from your average bacon cheeseburger.
18. Pizza Breakfast Bubble Up
Another casserole that doesn’t sound diet-appropriate. Pizza for dinner! Let alone breakfast is not usually thought of as diet food. Thankfully, this pizza is modified to fit into your Weight Watchers program. The even better news is that there are so many different zero-point toppings to choose from, so you can make this time and time again with some tweaks each time.
19. Philly Steak Bubble Up
A Philly cheesesteak sandwich transformed into a Weight Watchers-approved casserole. The cheese is light shredded mozzarella, and the shredded meat is steak. A little higher on the points than chicken or turkey, but the protein content is pretty good. It keeps the delicious flavors of this Philly classic and adds a creamy sauce using 1% milk, so it keeps the fat content low.
20. Turkey Hash Brown Breakfast Casserole
This casserole is kept simple by using hash browns instead of having you shred or chop your potatoes. The 10 eggs used give you a ton of protein, not to mention vitamin D, folate, vitamin B2, and choline. This casserole is also super delicious, warming, and comforting to end your day with!
21. Cheesy Chicken Broccoli Alfredo Bubble Up
Chicken and broccoli is a simple and staple combination to use in a casserole. You can’t go wrong. It is kept diet-friendly by using reduced-fat alfredo sauce and low-fat cheeses. However, the creamy taste is intact, though less on the fat content!
22. Creamy Chicken Bacon Ranch Bubble Up
This super delicious bubble-up casserole is kept healthy by using 1% milk in the sauce, same great flavor but without all the unnecessary calories.

23. Chicken Fried Rice Bubble Up
This generously sized casserole has Chinese-inspired flavors using teriyaki sauce and soy sauce, a great family meal.

24. Sausage and Scalloped Potato Casserole
A lightened-up scallop potato recipe? Yes, please! The reduced-fat cheese, light butter, and 1% milk are game changers. There are only 290 calories per serving, meaning you’ll still have enough points left over for dessert!
