I am planning on making sloppy joes for a potluck, but I want to know about how many I can get out of a pound.
My recipe calls for 1 can tomato soup
1tsp. white surgar
1/4 cup ketchup
1 tblesp vinegar
1 tsp mustard
Thank you in advance. I am thinking about using party size buns if I can find them.
This recipe from us says 2 lbs makes 16 sandwiches. I think it depends on whether you serve them or they serve themselves. My husband has a tendency to put the mixture on the bottom bun, put the top bun on and then smother the whole thing....which uses enough for 3 or 4 sandwiches personally.

I think Sue made a good point. When serving themselves some people really load a sloppy joe . I have also seen many make it into more of a knife and fork type of meal with the filling spilling out of the bun and onto the plate from the inside.
Another thing I thought of is Bun size. I tend to buy larger Deli type buns as opposed to a smaller "wonder" bread (for lack of a better description) type roll. The Buns I normally buy take more filling than the smaller buns essentially resulting in fewer servings but larger portions.

Thank you. I am buying the party size buns as this is a potluck , but I just want to make sure that I have enough buns for the meat and visa versa.
I have only used this recipe for us at home. Dh always fills his bun to the max so we only get a few out of them,,b ut then I have the monster buns.
You're very welcome. Just a thought - sloppy joe freezes really well, rolls freeze okay too. So if you have leftovers you can pop it in the freezer for an easy meal on a busy night.
