Cook Talk

Cooking for 80-100 people
Judy Thompson
How much ground beef should I cook for loose-meat sandwiches? I am also serving little smokies,baked beans,and two cold salads for 80-100 people. I want to make sure I have enough,but I also don't want to go overboard and end up with a lot of leftovers. HELP!!
For 100 people, standard recipes do 24 pounds of meat- each pound makes 5 buns.
Make sure some of the beans are meatless, in case you have any vegetarians- and maybe a bowl of egg salad for non-meat filling?

Now it's my turn to ask a favor of you. is remodeling and I want to provide the changes YOU (my readers) have been asking for. So after 18 years of supporting my readers as a hobby, I'm asking you for help!
