See the baked potato bar page for cooking and serving info. Foil is not recommended, it explains why.

Phil people love these, I allow 1/2 pound raw potato per person when making for buffet. You can do 1 pound for 3 people if yoou are plating the meal, not self serve.

Lauri, yes, much better than most. See my freezable potato section.

Ellen,
I am ordering mashed potatoes from Walmart deli for a wedding reception this Saturday 10/13. We are unsure of how many to order. Will 80 lbs of mashed potatoes be enough? Also how much gravy will I need?
Thanks!

Karen, you do not say how many people? 40 pounds is pkenty for 100 people- gravy 1/4 to 1/3 cup per person depending on whether it is just for the potatoes or also for the meat.

about 45 pounds of potatoes for the potatoes. See the holiday cooking section shopping and planning article for stuffing help. See the BBQ and brisket page for pig roasting links.
