Dinner party - How much meat per person? Help pls!
I'm hosting a casual dinner for 10 people to celebrate my sister's graduation in a few weeks. I have my menu set:
Assorted breads and rolls
Make your own sundaes
I need some help on how much meat to buy. 2 guests only eat chicken, 1 guest doesn't eat chicken. So 7 might eat both, 2 chicken, 1 beef. Any ideas??? Help?
Plan on 1/3 to 1/2 pound of beef for each person, and at least 1 piece of chicken for each. If 9 people eat chicken, I'd buy 11 thighs, just to be safe. With all the other food you probably won't need this much, but it's better to have left overs than not enough food for your guests.
Of course, all this depends on the gender split of the group and how much each person eats. God, it's like a word problem from grade school.
