100 person graduation party
After reading everything on site, just a bit confused about how much of each when having several sides? I'm having Hotdogs, sausage pepper and onions, Pasta or Mac salad,potato salad, baked beans, sauerkraut, all homemade, so need to know how many pounds of everything to start with? Having taco bar also, how much raw beef? I'm also having dips, chips,fruit,vegetables, assorted desserts:3 or 4 different ones! how many of each? do you scale down when you have more variety, I wouldn't think people would have one of everything. I'm getting more confused the more I read everyone's post
sausage pepper and onions,
taco bar
With the taco bar, why not skip either the hot dogs or the sausage and peppers??
Taco bar, use the taco bar page, do for 50
1 hot dog per person OR 1 pound sausage per5

Pasta or Mac salad, 5 pounds pasta
potato salad, 30 pounds potatoes
baked beans, 3 gallons
sauerkraut, about 5-6 quarts

dips, 1 pint dip or salsa per pound
chips, 1 pound per 12

fruit, use the fruit tray page, 3/4 the deluxe tray for 100 would be fine
vegetables, use the veggie tray page. classic relish tray with some added raw veg would be plenty.

assorted desserts:3 or 4 different ones
see the dessert planning page for help with amounts on a dessert buffet for 100.
