  • I think I made about 8 last time I used a pound of meat.

  • Use small slider buns and it will make more

  • I agree with the previous posters, 6 to 8 depending on what you put int he ground meat (like veggies) and the size of the bun.

  • I also get 6, but it depends on who is scooping, and the size of the buns.....if your guests are serving themselves, they may fill the buns even more.

  • 6 unless I add canned tomatoes to it, then about 8! I like the idea of the slider buns!

  • I would guess about 6 sandwiches, but I guess that depends on the size of the roll as well. When I make it for parties I usually make 2 lbs of ground beef on the stovetop, then add the meat and sauce into the crockpot along with some whole hotdogs, stir it up, let it cook a little bit..It gives the hotdogs a good taste as well :) GL

  • i make 2 pounds for my family, and we have enough left over for a couple of sandwiches. we eat at least 12 for the meal when we have them - and that with at least 2 veggies, some chips or something, and fruit. so i guess i get about 8 per pound - i also do not put a lot of meat on the bun.
