FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Can I add more vegetables?

You bet. Here are some ideas. Add a 12-ounce bag of frozen mixed veggies to sneak in some more veggies. Or you could sauté some bell peppers with the onion and ground beef.

What else can I garnish with?

I went with pickles and tomatoes since those are standard burger toppings. You could try a drizzle of bbq sauce on top or even a bit of shredded lettuce and some chopped red onion.

Can I use different cheese varieties?

Sure thing. You can swap out the shredded cheddar cheese for other options like Velveeta, pepper jack, or Monterey jack. You can even combine a few options.

What to serve with Bacon Cheeseburger Bubble Up?

Steamed vegetables or a side salad would go nicely with this dish. You can also go big and serve it with some french fries, the perfect cheeseburger sidekick. Sure, it’s a lot of carbs, but I’m not judging!

How to store leftovers and reheat them

This leftover Cheeseburger Bubble Up should be kept in the refrigerator for 3 days in an airtight container. You can also freeze leftovers for up to 3 months. To reheat, I’d cover leftovers with foil and reheat in the oven.

INGREDIENTS NEEDED: (SEE RECIPE CARD BELOW FOR THE FULL RECIPE)

  • ground beef – I used 80/20. You could also substitute for ground pork if you aren’t a huge beef fan. I think a combination of beef and pork would be delicious too!
  • onion and garlic – y’all know I much prefer fresh garlic but if you really need a time saver, the jarred stuff will do (but really try to go with fresh stuff if you can.)
  • Worcestershire sauce – this just adds some depth of flavor. It doesn’t add a strong taste.
  • cooked bacon – you can leave out the chopped bacon for just a plain Cheeseburger Bubble Up.
  • cheddar soup – you can swap this out for other cream of anything soups. Cream of mushroom or cream of chicken may also work. I have homemade recipes on the site here if you prefer them from scratch. Here’s the Homemade Cream Mushroom and Homemade Cream of Chicken soups to try. If you’ve never purchased cheddar soup before, you are going to find it near all the other canned soups. Generally in the same region as the cream of chicken soup, etc.
  • ketchup and yellow mustard – if ketchup or mustard isn’t your thing, feel free to omit either or both of them.
  • Pillsbury Grands homestyle biscuits – I get two of the smaller cans of biscuits. This is the perfect amount for these bubble up casseroles. You will need 10 biscuits total for this recipe.
  • cheddar cheese – I shredded the cheese myself here. These cheese is a big star in the show so I thought freshly shredded would taste best but you can certainly just pick up an 8 ounce package of pre-shredded cheese.
  • chopped pickles and chopped tomatoes – you do not have to garnish with these. You use what you like. This dish is delicious even without toppings!

HOW TO MAKE BACON CHEESEBURGER BUBBLE UP

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Spray a 9×13 baking dish with cooking spray and set aside. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown and crumble the ground beef with the onion and garlic until there isn’t any pink left and the veggies are translucent, about 8-10 minutes. Drain well. Add the Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper, and stir to combine. Take off the heat and set aside.

Place the mixture into a large bowl and stir together with the bacon, cheddar soup, ketchup, and mustard.

Top with the cheese. Bake, uncovered for 25-30 minutes until bubbly around the edges, the cheese has browned, and the biscuits are cooked through. Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes before serving with chopped pickles and tomatoes for garnish if using.
