Estimating food quantities for cookout
I am having a backyard cookout for approx. 50 people on Friday. I'm serving hamburgers, hot dogs, potato salad, baked beans, deviled eggs and a large platter of fruit. My question is how many hamburgers and hot dogs will I need, and also how many pounds of potato salad?
I have never had a party this large before, so I would really appreciate any advice regarding food quantity. I don't want to run out, but I also don't want to have a ton of leftovers.
Thanks in advance!
