Paleo Sloppy Joe Casserole (Whole30 Compliant)

This easy Whole30 friendly and Paleo Sloppy Joe Casserole is a perfect weeknight family dinner recipe, and it’s great for leftover as well! It’s a delicious twist on a childhood favorite.

I’ve been loving getting creative in the kitchen lately ever since I handed in my manuscript for my Korean Paleo cookbook, now that most of my energy isn’t spent on creating and perfecting recipes for the cookbook. Also, I’ve been eating SO MUCH Korean food during the cookbook writing process, so all-American dishes like this Paleo Sloppy Joe Casserole is such a welcome change in the kitchen.

Paleo Sloppy Joe Casserole Recipe

I don’t know if I can even describe this Paleo Sloppy Joe Casserole in a way that’s accurate enough to justify how tasty it is. It’s basically sloppy joes in a casserole form (duh), baked with extra sauce to coat the spaghetti squash that it’s cooked with. The concept is so simple, but the flavors are so comforting and takes me back to my childhood home cooked meals.

Instant Pot Spaghetti Squash

This recipe is pretty dang easy on its own, but becomes even easier if you own an Instant Pot. The first thing you are going to have to do is cook your spaghetti squash, and if you use the Instant Pot method, you don’t even have to cut the squash before cooking it. I love that because cutting a whole squash is always a pain in the butt involving a lot of arm muscles, the ones I don’t have. Time to fit in some arm workouts.

The rest of the steps are pretty straightforward, and you’ll glad to hear that the leftovers are delicious as well. I’ve tried reheating it in the oven and in the microwave, and they both tasted great and retained moisture well. It’s a great weeknight meal to feed a family, and if you have a busy week coming up, double up the recipe and cook it in a 9×13 baking dish to enjoy the leftovers for days!

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Cut the spaghetti squash in half and place cut side down on a baking sheet. Bake for 30-35 minutes until the squash is cooked through and the skin is soft when you press on it.

OR, use the Instant Pot method to cook the spaghetti squash: Place the steamer rack that came with the Instant Pot in the pot, and pour in 1 cup of water. Place the whole spaghetti squash, uncut, on the rack. Screw on the lid, make sure the pressure valve is closed, then cook for 20 minutes on manual. Release the pressure immediately and open the lid. Cut the squash in half.

Remove and discard the seeds, then transfer the threads of the spaghetti squash to an 10x10 baking dish.

Lower or preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Heat coconut oil in a large skillet over medium heat.

Add ground beef, onion, and garlic, and cook stirring until the beef is browned, about 5-7 minutes.

Pour the sloppy joes mixture over the spaghetti squash and stir together with a fork. Let it cool for 10 minutes.

Mix in whisked eggs until well combined.

Bake in the oven for 1 hour.

Cool for 10-15 minutes before serving.

What Designers Can Try From Martha Stewart?

Like every housewife, Martha Stewart, a long-time developer of experience, can teach a few things to UX practitioners to bring back users for more.

You can compare the experience of spending time with people living in their homes to experience a brand. When you enter the home of a truly wonderful host, you are faced with a number of carefully designed options designed to give you a positive experience. In other words: you are experiencing the ın brand ”of that household.

Pleasant tastes, ambience and lighting, welcoming cuddles and talking, the best hosts are planning every experience that their guests will experience, taking into account all their senses and emotional reactions. Like every brand, good hosts want their guests to come back for more.

Although some houses have played a role in persuading people to carefully consider their guests' multi-sensual needs while Martha Stewart, Candice Olson, and Jonathan Adler had such personalities, many homeowners have done this in multiple points of contact for generations. In many ways, we can say that homeowners are original experience designers.

Like every good host, brands also want consumers to enjoy the experience of their products. However, very often, they do not understand the spectrum of the multi-sensory needs of their customers and thus fall behind the expectations of the meeting.

Brands, Martha, Candice and Jonathan, by considering the three important principles, including the best daily hosts, brands can design meaningful, multi-sensory experiences and establish long-term relationships with customers.
