No. Freezer burn may appear as grayish-brown leathery spots on frozen food. Although undesirable, freezer burn does not make the food unsafe, merely dry in spots. Cut it away either before or after cooking the food.

How much ground beef do you need to make 40 decent-sized hamburgers for grilling?

Keep in mind that burger patties in restaurants come in four typical sizes, 1/4, 1/3, 1/2, & 3/4 pound patties. The average person can be expected to eat the 1/2 pound patty at a typical barbecue. Multiply 40 by 1/2 and you get 20 pounds. Keep in mind, the leaner the meat, the less the shrinkage, but greater leanness means less fat, and less taste (unless you add some). Give me an Angus bacon and cheese with no onions, pickles, tomatoes, Just leave lettuce, bacon, patty, and buns.

Ground Beef

Can ground beef that has been browned and frozen be thawed and put into a sauce and re-frozen?

Refreezing is only a problem if the food isn't cooked in-between. As long the the thawed food is thoroughly cooked it is no problem to refreeze. The fact that it turned brown while frozen is a bigger issue. I could be "freezer burn" which is when frozen food has dried out. This happens a lot in frost free freezers since dehydrating the air is part of why they're frost free. If you cook ground meat that has freezer burn it won't hurt you, but it might be chewy or dry. If you use it, I would suggest using it in something saucy like spaghetti sauce or chili so the dryness won't be noticable.

Another opinionAny meat that has been frozen can be roasted, fried or steamed WELL and then refrozen. Be sure you don't leave any pink juices in the ground beef. Cook well, then freeze as soon as it cools in the refrigerator. More on thisIt's not recommended, but many people have done it from time to time. There are two concerns - food safety and taste. On the food safety issue, the concern is that between freezing/thawing and refreezing, the meat will be at room temperature more than 1-2 hours, and may cause food poisoning. The second issue is taste. Food that is frozen, thawed and refrozen usually suffers in taste or texture. Ground beef is not as prone to loss of taste/texture as a steak would be, so that's not a huge concern.

Even more...

As long as the meat is defrosted in the refrigerator and kept out of the "danger zone" between 40° and 140°, you can refreeze it. There will be some loss of flavor though

How long to cook fozen beef burger in oven?

there is not a flat answer to this. First i would not cook beef burger while frozen in oven. I would defrost it first. Also depends on how much of it you have - by weigh and thickness, to say how long.

Beef should be cooked until it is no longer pink in center.

Ill say its a 1/4 # burger unthawed, baked at 350 degrees . it would take about 15- 20 minutes. Id say , but dont do it by time. Do it it by how it looks . when cooked ,It should be firm, but not hard, and not pink in center. Use a cooking thermometer. Cook beef to 165 degrees at thickest part.
