Here's a sample ingredient board for 15-20 people. The calculations are based on 1-2 ounces of meats and 1-2 ounces of cheese per person. If the board will be the main course of the party, adjust accordingly. Try for as much variety as possible. You can also add pate or other meat spreads. Figure that into the total amount of meat. The calculations will be 3.2 ounces of meat and cheese per person for 20 people. Nutritional information does not include crackers or bread.
