How Many Pounds Of Potatoes Should I Be Using When Cooking For Large Groups?


I'm dicing Yukon Gold potatoes to make hash browns or home fried potatoes. How many pounds of potatoes should I be using? There will be other sides. It's a breakfast with eggs, grits, and oatmeal as options and/or additions to each plate.


You will need approximately 6 pounds of potatoes for 25, 1/2 cup servings or 24 pounds for 100 servings. Of course, this varies by the audience... hungry sports teams will want more, multiple side’s means you could get by with a little less. Grits... in the South would be a popular substitution, in the West oatmeal might be more popular for example. Nearly everyone loves potatoes.
