How Much Food Should I Make?
It’s often a question about how much food should be prepared for an event. Follow these “Rules of Thumb” to ensure there is an even spread!
Turkey or Ham – Having 1 pound per guest is typical. However, if you’re hosting big eaters or are anticipating left overs, prepare 1 ½ pounds per person instead.
Potatoes – Allow 1/2 pound of raw potatoes per person. This will translate to approximately 6 to 8 oz of cooked potatoes per guest.
Gravy – 1/2 cup per person will guarantee all potatoes will be smothered!
Pie – A 9 inch pie plate typically serves six. However, if you anticipate your guest to be light eaters, a 9 inch pie plate will easily serve 8.
