"I would love to try this but I would like a serving size of about 8-10. I guess I can just use the ingredients and downsize it"

"I make this for our church suppers and it's one of the favorites! I would recommend adding less milk until you see if you need it all or it could get soupy. I serve this with mashed potatoes, gravy, a vegetable and cranberry sauce. It's a real crowd pleaser!"

"Sounds good but shouldn't this recipe be scaled down a bit? Most people don't cook for 70-80 very often."
