  • Potato Salad

    How many # of potatoes do I need to serve 12? I'm asked to make PS for Community Meals at a local church. Thanks.

    I don't know how many pounds, but I would used 12-15 medium sizes potatoes.

      4 servings per pound of potato salad or 1/2 cup per person.

      But it also depends on the type of "eaters" you might have and how much other food that is being made. Since you are making homemade, I'd start with a 10 lb. bag of potatoes, cut up 5lbs first, see how that "looks" and if it's not "looking" like enough, do some more.....that's what I usually do. Sorry if that's not helpful!!!

      The good thing is that potato salad will keep for a few days refrigerated, so if you have more than you need, you can either send home "doggie plates" or save it for another meal.
      The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.

        I usually use 1-2 pototoes per person depending on the size of the potato.

            I always use 5 lbs. of potatoes and it makes a lot. To be on the safe side, you better use more maybe 7 lbs? It's best to have more, than less.

              I also figure one or two potatoes per person, depending on size of potato. Not everybody will eat potato salad, and some people may take a second helping. Throw in a couple of extra potatoes to be on the safe side. There will be other food to eat, sounds like the potato salad is a side dish.
