Messy Jessie’s

Messy Jessie’s

This recipe is a SCD Diet, Low FodMap rendition of Sloppy Joe’s in honor of my daughter, Jessie, who loves them.  It is a quick and easy weeknight meal using my SCD Low Fodmap BBQ Sauce recipe. So you can have this BBQ Sauce on hand and add to two pounds of ground meat and a few other ingredients, and viola, a very yummy Messy Jessie!


1 Large Butternut Squash

2 Pounds of Grass Fed Ground Beef

1 Green Pepper, chopped

1 1/2 Cups SCD Low FodMap BBQ Sauce

1 teaspoon Himalayan Pink Salt

1/2 teaspoon Black Pepper

1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil, Plus more for the Squash


Peel and Slice the Butternut Squash into rounds.  The rounds will come from the solid top part of the squash.  The rest can be cubed and roasted along with the “buns”.  Lay the rounds in a single layer on a parchment lined cookie sheet, and brush with melted coconut oil and salt and pepper to taste.  Roast in a 400 degree oven for 25 minutes flipping after 15 minutes.  This is your bun.

Meanwhile, sautee the green pepper, ground beef, salt and pepper in the coconut oil until browned. Drain excess fat and add the BBQ sauce and simmer for five minutes. Place one round of butternut squash on a plate, pile on the Messy Jessie filling and top with another round of squash. A family friendly Messy Jessie!  My husband and kids love the butternut squash bun, and the leftover filling is great on salad the next day.

If you are on the SCD Diet, you know it is nearly impossible to find legal sauces.  Low FodMap too, forget it.  Here is a delicious barbecue sauce that is not difficult to make! You can use it for many things, including my Messy Jessie’s.


3 Cups of Tomato Puree, SCD Legal

1/4 Cup Clear Honey

1/4 Cup Apple Cider Vinegar

1 Teaspoon Himalayan Pink Salt

1/2 Teaspoon Black Pepper

1/2 Teaspoon Paprika

1/2 Teaspoon Smoked Paprika

2 Tablespoons Dijon Mustard (No Garlic or Onion)

1/4 Teaspoon Cayenne

1/2 Teaspoon Ground Cumin

6 Dashes Tabasco Sauce

2 Tablespoons Garlic Olive Oil

Place all ingredients in a medium, deep, saucepan.  Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and simmer until reduced by half. This will take about 30 minutes.  This makes 2 one pint jars.  Freeze one jar for later. It freezes beautifully!  This is a very versatile BBQ Sauce.  I use it to make Messy Jessie’s (a version of Sloppy Joe’s named after my daughter who loves them)  as well as on grilled chicken, etc.

Happy Barbecuing!
