How many people will 15 pounds of hamburger feed?

The rule of thumb is 1/2 pound per serving. So 15 pounds should feed 30 people according to the books. BUT, this is based on a SERVING and a real human being's idea of a serving and a cookbook's idea of a serving is almost always different. If you're planning on feeding children, 30 is a good number, but if you're planning for adults, I would cut that number to 20 to allow for second helpings. I think it depends on what you are putting it in? I cook for a living and I would base your amounts on 3 people per lb.

Macaroni Noodles

What is the recipe for hamburger helper-type cheeseburger macaroni?

I make this fairly often. I cook and drain the noodles while I brown the ground beef. It's best to use a soft cheese such as Velveeta. When the noodles and meat are cooked and drained, I mix them together and add lots of the cheese (don't over-do.) I place it back on the burner on very low heat and stir occasionally until the cheese is melted. I also sometimes cook chopped onions with the meat as it cooks, or add a packet of onion soup mix or dried onion flakes after I mix it all together. Salt and pepper to taste and remove from heat when the cheese is melted and combined with the other ingredients well.

Where was O'Henry's hamburger stand located in Chicago?

Chicago's O'Henry's Hamburgersi thought i was the only one who remembered henrys. they were located on western ave right behind riverview near belmont ave. they kinda got lost when the city built the overpass. there is a used car lot there now. i understand they had some other locations too. i still thing they were better than mcdonalds. btw, the only place i have found that has a pickle that tastes like henrys is at father & son pizza.

Don't know about O'Henry's, but in the early 60's there were some Henry's hamburger stands. As I remember they mixed the catsup and mustard to produce their sauce. They may have added something else, but the popularity of McDonald's did them in.

I do recall an O'Henry's hamburgers situated on Western Ave. just east of Route 30 in the early to mid 1960s, in Park Forest. It occupied a location just north of Illinois St. and ironically was situated near a McDonald's. My dad used ot take us there.

There was a Henry's Hanburgers on Skokie Blvd. and Golf Road. It was on the Southeast corner. Behind it was an amusement park with the Wild Mouse. Right now, the Doubletree Hotel stands there.

There was an O'Henrys on Western and Foster on the NW side of the corner in the late 60's

There was also a Henry's at Fullerton and Central Avenues across the street from Hansen Stadium. I worked there. 1962

My dad grew up on the South Side in Slag Valley on Commercial Ave. He said he remembers O'Henry's hamburger stand on 95th and Jeffery Ave on the Southwest Corner.

I remember when there was one by Riverview---but I was from Waukegan, Ill and I would go to one on Washington Street and Lewis Ave.- Across the street from EDI Electronics --I would go there after school--they had the best $. 25 burgers--I was told they were horse meat. The USA did at one time use horse meat for burgers. When I talk about O'Henrys no one remembers this place, but I do.

How long can you make hamburger patties in advance?

If your meat is very fresh, you can make patties up to one week in advance - but I'd recommend no more than a day or two (unless you intend to freeze them).

I prefer to make patties the day before and refrigerate them - they tend to hold up better on the grill. They will fall apart more easily if they if they go on the grill immediately after being formed by your warm hands.
