Sloppy Joes

I am planning a party for the summer and need ideas for a Farm themed party. I was thinking that the main course could be sloppy joes, but how much would I make for 30 adults and 4 kids?

  • I used 3 lbs of ground turkey. But we also had a ton of other food. We had 32 adult guests and 6 kids.

  • i have 4 kids, and i make 2 lbs for our family - we usually have a little bit left over. you can always freeze the leftover meat. so at a bare minimum, i would make 10 pounds of meat since you have mostly adults.

  • Wow! That is a ton of food! for our family of 4 we use 1/2 a lbs for sloppy joes! Unless you are putting on almost 1/2 lb on each sandwich that's an insane amount... 8 lbs?!?! Crazy!

  • Thanks everyone. I was also thinking around 10 pounds. Whe I made slopp Joes for the 3 of us- Me, Husband and Kid, I make about a pound and that gives me leftovers.
