How many pounds of chop meat for 40 adults and 14 kids(mostly toddlers)?

we are serving burgers, hot dogs and chicken kabobs, tossed salad, pasta salad, and black bean and corn salad.

We are having 40 adults and about 14 kids ranging from toddler to about 8 years old.

what do you think?

I have no idea how much chop meat but for a party that large I would get the pre-made ones from the frozen section or the pre-made patties from the meat section at BJ's.

You could also go by the rule of 1/2 lb patty per person.

At least 15 pounds of chopped meat, I would think.

well, I usually get about 4 good size burgers per pound of meat.. so I would figure 1 pound per 4 people and then figure 1 pound per 6 toddlers if you are going to make their burgers smaller.

I had 30 adults and 15 kids yesterday. I bought 12 lbs and made it into sliders. With the dogs and BBQ chicken we went through about 3/4's of it.

I really think sliders are better than hamburgers.. less waste because people sometimes only want a little.. and if they want more.. they grab another!

Exactly this. I made burgers this weekend for a bbq and I made 4 burgers from every pound. I bought 5.75 pounds and got 23 burgers. I measured the amount of meat I used to try to get them all to be approx the same size. For toddlers you could make them a bit smaller and get more from a pound. But, my almost 3 year old can eat almost an entire adult sized burger (but that would be his entire meal, he wouldn't eat any of the other things.)
