    Ok, so there's going to be roughly about 12 or more people at the function.

    What size ham would be appropriate, keeping in mind that that's the only meat course being offered.

    I would say 6 to 8 ounces per person.

    Honeybaked Ham website says a 7 pound ham serves 10 to 14 people. That is the weight with a bone.

    Oh.  And there are some big eaters in the group.  LOL  Forgot to mention that.

    I would say 8 ounces per person minimum -- without a bone that would be a 6 pound ham. Of course leftover ham is always a good thing so I dont' think you can buy too big of a ham. Smile

    one way to control portions is to not let people serve themselves or load them up on appetizers LOL

    Tree is correct, Pags. 

    Of course, in my case, you may wish to allow 12-16 ounces of Ham per serving.  I'm something of a Piggy Meat addict! Wink

    BTW...What day and time do you want us to come by to consume said Pig?

    Have a Happy Monday!

    Krissy, are you a piggy pig? Wink

    If Pags will just tell us the date and time, I'll be glad to help serve so no one over eats Big Smile

    I doubt that, Mammaw!

    I would rather have way too much than not enough, especially if they are big eaters.  There are only 6 of us at dinners, and we buy a whole big ham.  That way, if there should be someone invited at the last minute, we have enough.  Plus we all like leftovers, so we have plenty for that, too.  I would get a big whole ham!
