    Nice article!

    Though I do have to disagree that a pound feeds a family of four. It's not a proper burger unless it falls in the 1/3 to 1/2 lb range!

    I have a family of 5 and need at least 2.5-3lbs to feed us.

    In my calorie-counting days I used to make measly 1/4-lb burgers. The guy would always look at them and sigh, but eat anyway.

    He's much happier with his burger size nowadays. :P

    Yeah, I find about 1/2 lb (uncooked weight) to be just right - I'll typically split a 1 lb package between me and the bf. That and a side salad or other veggie is usually just right for me.

    A pound will just barely feed me and my husband, lol! I like my burgers like, a squished tennis ball.

    i HIGHLY disagree with #7. I hate thin patties.
    I like thick, juicy burgers that are charred on the outside and dripping pinkish red on the inside. At least a 3/4" thick.

    I like thin sliders. Small, thin, easily eaten. Still end up eating over a pound between hubby and I, but you feel better, because you've indulged in eating so many. I like them cooked on a flattop with caramelized onions ala white castle. Just, you know, with good meat and a primal bun or lettuce wrap.
