Made this for a church meeting, it was good but this recipe will realistically feed only about 60 people. I made the full recipe and it made 6 9x13 pans. It was a good recipe though, and enjoyed by all. I found it easy to make and easy to put together. I appreciated the way you have how many cups of each ingredient to put in each casserole. I will be making a scaled down version for a potluck this Sunday. Thank you for a good recipe.
