wedding reception

for a wedding reception of 80 people, how many pounds of pulled pork, meatballs, and chicken broccoli rice casserole, should I make? There will also be multiple salads like potato, macaroni,scalloped potatoes, and mac and cheese. But my big concern is having enough meats for guests.

For 80 people, You want to end up with about 35 pounds cooked meats, which is maybe 40+ raw boneless.

So you get to decide how you want to divvy it up. Maybe 10 pounds raw chicken, 10 pounds meatballs and 20 raw pork. Consider a non-tomato sauce/gravy for the meatballs, since you are serving them with the pork.

If this saves you time, trouble, or money, please make a donation, a nickel or dime per guest, to support this site. Thanks.
