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.
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!
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?
If Pags will just tell us the date and time, I'll be glad to help serve so no one over eats
That's affirmative, Tree!
What's that saying...You are what you eat?
If that be true...I'm cheap, fast and easy!
I doubt that, Mammaw!
You did make me LOL though!
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!
