There are two basic methods for costing out a recipe that has different options.
- List both ingredients in the actual recipe. Create the costing card with both the ranch and the blue cheese dressing, then go back into your computer/POS system and find out how many of each are sold.
If you sell 75% with blue cheese and 25% with ranch, add that into your recipe cost. That would oe 75% the cost of the blue cheese and 25% the cost of the ranch.
2. Average the ingredients together. Let’s say that a two-ounce portion of blue cheese costs $.07 and a two-ounce portion of ranch costs $.05. Just cost it out at $.06 and you’re done, it doesn’t really matter that much.
I hope this helps eliminate some of the overwhelm and confusion from something that is already complicated enough, which is costing out your recipes. Hope you enjoyed this week’s video and I look forward to bringing you another one just like it next week. Have a wonderful day.
