These low sodium Sloppy Joes are THE best easy weeknight meal, we had them a few nights in a row and even after a few days they still got a 10/10!  I used to have Sloppy Joes all the time growing up, but never bothered to make them much as an adult. Now that we have this great low sodium version, we keep it in our dinner rotation.

These Sloppy Joes are just as simple to make as using canned no-salt-added tomato sauce and spies!  All you have to do is add in a few vegetables as you brown the meat, and add a few pantry staple spices and tomatoes to make a delicious sauce.

    1. Hi Marlys,
      Yes the nutrition does include the bun – the bun is estimated at 210mg of sodium each, but may vary based on what you are able to find at your store. Let me know if you make these and how they turn out!
