  • my patties generally end up being 1/4 lbs. (we like big burgers though LOL)
    so if it were me, and planning on extras for the guys, I'd buy maybe 5 lbs. that would make 20 patties for me.

  • depends on what you add to the meat and how big you make them. In our house I average 6 patties to a pound

  • I agree with anon, 4-5 pounds for those who eat seconds, you could also just make sliders and give people two, itll make the meet go a little farther and it looks like you get more food...its more effort though!? up to you and how creative you feel like being!

  • You can get 4 patties out of a pound of hamburger. You can buy hamburger patties that are frozen and amazing. That is usually what I do when I need to feed a lot of people.
