You can only put about 50 people's worth (20-25 pounds) in one roaster at one time.You need to cover the rest tightly and keep hot in ovens. If you use more than one roaster, be aware that multiples can blow circuits- put each one on a surge protector so when it blows, you don't have to go find the circuit box.

If you need a recipe look at my freezable, holdable mashed potatoes on the big pots page. Make a small batch to be sure you like the flavor. Then get started, you have a LOT of potatoes to do.

Rice pilaf is easier...

You preheat/reheat the potatoes in the oven before filling the roaster.
