Hi-

Are all of the items listed on that form breakfast for 100 recommended? Or do you choose for example either the breakfast casserole OR the scrambled eggs? Like wise with the breads/meat etc?

Thanks

Hey that is a good question. As a rule, you would pick one main course such as eggs, quiche, pancakes or casserole; then add meats, potatoes, fruit, juice, cereal, breads, etc, depending on the menu. So you might have just breads and yogurts, or you might have eggs, meat, toast, potatoes and fruit...

Menu: Scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, gravy, grits, biscuits, waffles, syrup, orange juice,coffee, milk, and jelly.

Please give me the amount I will need to serve 125 people.

Thanks.

If this is self serve, I assume everyone will take eggs and bacon, about 1/2 will take grits (more in the south), 2/3 will take sausage, about 1/2 will take waffles if they are ready (less if they are make it yourself), 1/2-2/3 will take biscuits. 1/4 cup gravy per person. Everything else for everyone. All these items are covered on the breakfast plan for 100 table and the beverage table. So, for 125, use 1 1/4 the amount; for 60 2/3 the amount. Take a whack at the calculation, post it, and I will check it for you.
