Walmart Food Finds: Lean Beef Bacon, Frozen Shepherd's Pie, Microwave-in-Bag Sautéed Mushrooms

Aug 25 2021
We discovered SO many amazing food finds during our latest Walmart haul on the Hungry Girl podcast. Put these three standouts on your shopping list STAT.

Smoke Bar Ranch Hickory Smoked Beef Bacon

1.5 slices: 30 calories, 1.5g total fat (0.5g sat fat), 115mg sodium, 0g carbs, 0g fiber, 0g sugars, 3g protein — SmartPoints® value 1*

WOWOWOW. Where has beef bacon been all our lives? This was our first time trying it, and we're officially in love. It may even be BETTER than pork bacon! These thin slices are super lean and flavorful. Odd serving size aside, you can bet this is a new breakfast staple for us. Find it at select Walmart locations and other retailers.

Great Value Beef Shepherd’s Pie

1 cup: 190 calories, 10g total fat (4g sat fat), 520mg sodium, 15g carbs, 2g fiber, 2g sugars, 10g protein — SmartPoints® value 6*

This frozen casserole is an absolute sleeper hit — you might pass by it, but that would be a mistake. We get serious throwback vibes here… Hello, TV dinner! The package contains five servings, each with less than 200 calories. We might toss in some chunky veggies to get even more bang for our calorie buck. Great Value is a Walmart-exclusive brand, so find it at the location nearest to you.

Minute Mushrooms Sautéed Portabella Mushrooms

3 oz. (half of pouch): 30 calories, 1g total fat (0g sat fat), 340mg sodium, 4g carbs, 2g fiber, 2g sugars, 3g protein — SmartPoints® value 1*

We were way excited to try these shelf-stable, microwave-in-bag precooked mushrooms, and they did not disappoint. Flavorful and a bit saucy, they’re an easy way to make healthy basics like plain chicken breast taste like a gourmet meal. (And with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar? You see where we're going here.) Find them at Walmart (stock varies by location) or order from Amazon (while they last!).

SmartPoints® value* not what you expected? We follow the same method as WW (formerly known as Weight Watchers) when calculating the value of a recipe: We add up the SmartPoints® values* of the individual ingredients using the Recipe Builder, not the calculator. (Many foods have a value of zero and remain zero in recipes.)
