Menu is roast beef, and boneless chicken breast, roasted potatoes, and mixed vegetables. Served buffet styles. Assuming 1 small breast per person, how many lbs of beef? How many lbs of potatoes? How much vegetable? It is a mixed crowd of young and old.

You want to end up with 5 ounces cooked beef per person, which works out to about 2 pounds raw boneless per 5. 40-50 pounds of potatoes, unless baked; see the baked potato page for help there. 22-25 pounds ready to cook veggies.

If this saves you time, trouble or money, consider a donation to support the site.
