Help! I've just been tasked with making Caesar salad for 70 people....tomorrow. So I need to get shopping in today. I am just planning on bagged Romaine, prepared dressing, parmegian and prepared croutons. Does anyone have any experience with amounts? I have been checking sites on-line and the estimates are all over the place.

We will be making personal pizzas in an outdoor pizza oven and this will be the only side dish. Anyone? Thanks so much for any ideas.

Cookie,

I use the CI coddled-egg recipe, but I don't use a coddled egg (I'm risky that way). You could totally prepare it in advance and fridge it, although not more than a day, and if you are prepping ahead, you probably want the coddled eggs. One recipe does 1lbs+ of romaine.

Prewashed bagged romaine hearts are your friend.

Here is the quantities from "The Family Meal" by Adria. It includes quantities for 75.

I wonder if you could find better estimates in an Amish cookbook (or Amish recipes online).
