How many appetizers do you need? One pie or two? Find out here.

Whether you’re a first-time host or holiday veteran, we’ve all been there before. How much sides and pie do you need to serve? You definitely don’t want to have too little — if anything, it’s better to have too much. (Has anyone ever complained about too much stuffing? Nope.)

So, to help streamline your shopping trip, we’ve created this helpful servings planner. Simply choose the number of people you’re feeding, what dishes you’d like to serve and build your grocery list. Holiday planning has never been easier.
