WE are trying some new territory a group in our community asked us to quote an appetizer menu for 200. We would like the challenge because it will open up a whole new fund raising road for us, but we have always done BBQ. So I would like ideas on types of tizers and quantity I would need for 200 people. Thanks Food Bank Freddy
why not do BBQ appetizers?
- pulled pork sliders
- smoked chili poppers
- chicken popsicles
- hunks and chunks of brisket cubes or red hots on a pick
the ideas are endless...
As for quantity it depends on the function, time of day and expectations of the 'group' (it sounds so mysterious)
I think a good general rule is for snacks before meal time 2-3 per person and for during meal time 5-7 per person.
(but the exact size of the item will skew the numbers ie. pulled pork slider = 3 app bites)
Will add my 2cents.
I can guarantee there will be some guests with an aversion to meat or eggs or dairy...
If you do go the Q route (which is IMO perfect as that is what you do, right?) that population will be expecting something more substantial than a crudité tray.
I can also safely say that the carnivores will partake of the veg dishes so might be a good idea to have more than one offering and make extra.

Such an understatement, I have SO been there and done that. And the guests are so sneaky about it,
downright dishonest sometimes. The only semi-sure way is to have the client register" the veginareeans
with you (caterer) so you know who they are ahead of time.
Just to be clear - you need 200pcs or are you serving 200 people?
