You can substitute sandwich thins for the bun. They are only 100 calories and you don't have to go bunless or topless on sandwiches! My kids love them, too! Submitted by:

Very good. I too didn't use the buns. We use thinwiches as the buns. Saves some calories. I also add 1 slice of low fat provolone cheese. I don't like mushrooms so I left those out too. Submitted by:

Lots of calories. i find most of sparks recipes not very low at all. Is the person who does this a real qualified person,a nutritionist? Submitted by:

i doubled the onion, carrot and bell pepper and used fresh chopped baby bella mushrooms instead of canned. basically it is way more "garden" and way less "birdy". i also added sea salt and thyme and 1/2 tsp powdered cumin to the mix. it's great!!! Submitted by:

Under the nutritional info there is a link to see where all of the calories come from per ingredient. This recipe has about 175 calories in the filling and 256 calories for the bread. That's a miscalculation on the bread I think. That would be a LARGE bun, about 3.5 oz. Normal buns: 2 oz. Submitted by:

Just a thought, whenever a recipe calles for canned tomatoes I use stewed tomatoews and drain off the liquid. A little calorie difference but a big flavor difference..,Chef Jim Submitted by:

Love the turkey/chicekn option, thanx! They were easy & filling! I loved the carrots, green peppers and mushrooms, as they're not what I would have added but it really boosts the nutritional value and flavor. Great choice, easy as well as healthy, thanx. Submitted by:

I'm this an ok as I am confused by the different comments on the calorie counts. Why can't the originator of this recipe just correct the information? Submitted by:

Ok, so more than half of the calories (256) are from the bun. The recipe claims the same count would be true if you used WW bread. Not sure about that. It's not too difficult to find a nice WW bread with fewer than 100 calories/slice. Submitted by:

I would not even consider a single sandwich that contains 428 calories at a restaurant so I would not make one at home either! Submitted by:

could the recipe calorie differential be because this recipe used regular ground turkey and not lean 93/7 turkey breast. I have found a significant difference using different brands. Submitted by:

A VERY tasty recipe, however WATCH the calories. Substitute very low cal buns and barbeque sauce. Still, the calorie count is VERY high in my opinion. Submitted by:

This was good, we loved the veggies (dice them very fine and even picky eaters eat them up). I thought the sauce needed more kick so added sugar free ketchup and Worcestershire which did the trick. Very healthy and will definetly make again. Submitted by:

This is a wonderful recipe.I do feel it should be rewritten leaving out the buns,in a way that the computer will give an accurate count.Sloppy Joes have always been a favorite.Simple adjustments for salt with N/S canned tomatoes,and N/S salsa if available in Canada.Many good Suggestions in comments.

Did you know that ground turkey and lean ground sirloin have the same fat content? So, if you aren't a fan of ground turkey, go ahead and eat lean ground sirloin! :-) Submitted by:

A nice variation on a family favorite. Whenever possible I use "no salt added" canned vegetables, so I added some extra seasonings to this recipe; and I used both green and sweet red peppers. This won't necessarily replace my regular sloppy joe recipe, but it is certainly a meal I will make again. Submitted by:

438 calories is a ridiculous amount of calories to spend on a sloppy joe. That's about what I have calorie-wise for breakfast AND lunch. Someone said you divide the calories by 8 but I don't see where it instructs us to do that. The bun alone is 140 calories. I won't be trying this. Submitted by:

I made this recipe using extra lean ground turkey breast and low sodium canned tomatoes. I added some Mrs. Dash for some added flavor and used lower sodium salsa in place of the barbeque sauce. I served it on the whole wheat slimwich buns and enjoyed them very much. I will definitely make again. Submitted by:
