“what is the precooked weight of each of your burger patties, and what is the average weight of each of the patties after cooking?”
Paul, keep in mind there's a fair degree of fat and moisture loss that comes with any cooking – just like at home. These weights are approximate: the uncooked weight of our hamburger patties is 45.4g. After cooking, they weigh 30g. Incidentally, we haven't changed the size of our hamburger patty since the first McDonald's restaurant opened in 1967 in Canada. Quarter Pounders patties are 113.4g uncooked and 78g cooked. Angus Third Pounders patties are 152.8g uncooked and 111g cooked. This concludes our presentation on relative burger patty weights. Thanks for your question.
