I'm hosting a birthday party for 90 adult guests. This will be a buffet so the guests can have multiple servings. I need to know how much food to buy if I'm serving the following:
Baked Ham
Turkey
Baked Chicken
Green beans
Macaroni and cheese
Rice
Mashed Potatoes
Gravy
Dinner Rolls

Baked Ham
Turkey
Baked Chicken- adding the chicken makes it complicated- how about just turkey and ham? See the planning and shopping section at the top of Big Pots for turkey plus ham. If you do add the chicken, cut the other two back about 1/10 each and just add about 40 pieces of chicken

Green beans 4 #10 cans or 20 pounds

Macaroni and cheese- 6 pounds dry, 6 quarts sauce
Rice-4 pounds dry
Mashed Potatoes- 20 pounds?
This is a lot of starch, you will have some left.

Gravy, 1/4 cup per person

Dinner Rolls 10 pounds, 2-3 pounds butter

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