Like many of you, I’ve been working on my menu and shopping for the upcoming Thanksgiving feast.  As important as it is to create the perfect dishes, it’s equally important to ensure you have enough food to feed your guests.  What could be worse than not having enough gravy, turkey or (gasp!) pie?

Today I am sharing a guide for Thanksgiving Dinner serving sizes in the hopes of taking the guesswork out of the age old question – how much food should I prepare?

THANKSGIVING DINNER SERVING SIZES

NIBBLES/STARTERS:
Small Bites/Appetizers – 3 per guest
Cheese – 2 ounces per guest
Dip – 3 ounces per guest

SIDES:
Stuffing (aka Dressing) – 3/4 cup per guest
Mashed Potatoes – 3/4 cup (about 1 potato) per guest
Gravy – 1/2 cup (I always make a little more)
Veggies – about 4 ounces
Cranberry Sauce – 1/3 cup

PROTEIN:  amounts will allow for leftovers – you gotta have a turkey sandwich, right?!
Bone-in Turkey – 1 1/2 pounds per guest
Boneless Turkey – 1/2 pound per guest

PIE:
A 9-inch pie will typically feed 6-8 guests.  Unless one of those guests is a 16 year old, pumpkin-pie-loving-boy.  Then you should plan on preparing 1 pie (yes, an entire pie!) solely for the aforementioned 16 year old boy.  Doing so will allow your remaining guests to also enjoy a slice of pie.

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, filled with family, good friends and good food.
