Making hamburgers for your family of 3?
Plan 1/4 pound per person or 3/4 pound for family of 3. If you buy a pound package, either freeze 1/4 pound for another meal or cook it all and save one portion for another meal.
Serving a roast to 4 and want leftovers?
Buy enough for 8 servings, such as a chuck roast that is about 2 1/2 pounds. Set aside the extra portions and serve only the amount to be eaten at the meal.
