I've been searching high and low for some help with this and came acrossed this.
I'm having a vow renewal with a reception and dinner to follow for 160 people. Some may not show or some that weren't invited may show. My family and I are buying,preparing and surfing a buffet style dinner. I was wondering if I posted what was being made if I could get some guidance on how much to make perdish to serve that many people. Some of those guest will also be children or teens. My fear is to run out of food before everyone has eaten.
The menu is
Pulled pork sandwiches
Cream of chicken sandwiches
Puerto rican rice
(A mix of random foods, I know)
160 is at the outer range of do-able for a family. I have a few additions and suggestions to help make it easier.
Pulled pork sandwiches- 16-18 pounds raw boneless pork to start
Cheesy potatoes- 45 pounds plus 2 1/2 gallons sauce for scalloped potatoes, if a single pan refrigerated overnight, expect to bake 2-2 1/2 hours at 350
Green beans- 30 pounds ready to cook
These can be made 48-72 hours ahead:
