Stuffing : Typically the big crowd-pleaser at the table, stuffing is one side dish you don't want to run out of, so assume each guest will eat about 3/4 cup (cooked). If you know you're feeding a crowd that especially loves stuffing and might want seconds — or thirds — bake an extra batch out of the turkey to have on hand just in case. You can always use any leftovers for sandwiches the next day.   4 guests: 3 cups; 8 guests: 6 cups; 12 guests: 9 cups; 16 guests: 12 cups

Cheese : If you serve cheese before the meal, offer 2 ounces of cheese per guest. We prefer the prettier look of serving cheese in wedges instead of cubes. Guests can slice their own bites to eat with crackers, and they will be less likely to overdo it before the meal begins. If serving cheese as a final course, you can serve less, since at that point cheese is more about flavor than appetite.   4 guests: 8 ounces; 8 guests: 1 pound;  12 guests: 1 1/2 pounds; 16 guests: 2 pounds

Rolls : In order to keep your guests from filling up on bread before dinner even begins, serve rolls as a side dish with the main meal instead. For a heartier variation, substitute cornbread or popovers for regular dinner rolls.   4 guests: 6 rolls; 8 guests: 12 rolls; 12 guests: 18 rolls; 16 guests: 24 rolls

Hushpuppies

Coffee and Tea : Assume 1 cup of either per guest to be safe. Some of your guests might not have saved room for even one more drop, but having enough coffee and tea just in case keeps you on the safe side.
