Any Cooks out here?

I was asked to fix green beans for a large group of friends. I have cooked them many times for just us or small groups (6-10 max) but not for 45 people. Normally just fry bacon (not crisp) and dump everything in together add salt and pepper and let them cook until time to eat.

Is there anyone out here that has cooked for a large group? I have about 5.5 lbs. of fresh beans heating up now. frying bacon separately to get some good bacon grease (2.5 lbs. ) having to cook today for tomorrow so they are done. Anyone have any tips for cooking such a big amount, how long?? idea on how much salt/pepper? any help appreciated

I'm not sure 5 pounds is enough. I've been using Paula Deen's recipe for green beans and it's my favourite. I'm including the link to give you ideas. It calls for 3 pounds of green beans to serve 8 to 10.

I have only cooked for 100+ once and 40 never...but I like my green beans kinda like you only I steam for couple minutes with butter and spices on top for little while. then put in skillet with bacon almost crisp and not the grease. I do add other things occasionally like few onions or and celery or and zucchini , just anything at the time...green beans are fav vegythen creamed peas ect... now I like little on crisp side and not limp...but the beans you have at the time are the deciding factor as to how they turn out..its not always your fault....I cook for lots of people and wife helps. I use my smoker lots and have it in the trailer. love to cook. jeff

My mother always cooked southern style--green beans with salt pork--cooked to death or completely limp.

They'd be just great with bacon, but it's some expensive stuff to use now. A little sugar also helps bring out the taste.
