We're doing a bbq birthday party for about 70 (which includes a few kids under 10yrs but mostly adults)
Have a bbq guy doing lamb, pork and salmon so pretty chilled on the quantities there
Alongside this I'm sorting the rest and am thinking:
bread x 10 baguettes
green salad - lots !
new/warm boiled potatoes - 10lbs
greek salad - 8.5lbs
Does that sound about right ? And any advice re the roast veg - was goining to prep day before and just reheat on the bbq in tray ..
Thanks a million
What a pleasant party.
Grilled or roasted veg can be served room temp- perfectly safe and acceptable. about 15 pounds.
I would count this for estimating purposes as 2/3 of 100.
bread x 10 baguettes- at least 8 pounds, 10-12 would not be too much. Have a couple pounds of butter for the folks who like it.
green salad - see plan for 100, do 1/2 to 2/3 Greek salad
new/warm boiled potatoes - 10lbs- I would do 25-30, you don't have a lot of starch on this menu, and these are a very popular filler
greek salad - 8.5lbs-OK, but I would do double and cut back some on the plain mixed
