Important Note: if using 1/2 cup serving of sloppy joe mix per bun, this will make 50 Sloppy Joes. 1/2 cup makes an ample serving per bun with a little spillage off the sides of the bun. Like we all expect a sloppy joe to look.
Using 1/3 cup serving per bun will yield 60 Sloppy Joes with a smaller about of meat per bun.
If you'd like to Sloppy Joes using slider buns, this should yield about 80 - 100 Sloppy Joe Sliders.
Hamburger Buns: Not all hamburger buns are created equal. There are some very large buns available for sale. Choose the smaller 3 1/2 inch buns for this recipe to accommodate the number of servings.
Make these sloppy joes ahead of time and freeze. Use gallon zip lock bags. Just push the air out of the bags, once you put meat in and they’ll lay flat in the freezer for easy storage. Let them thaw overnight in the fridge, then reheat when ready.
