This recipe makes enough for

  1. This recipe makes enough for six people.

    What does the phrase “make enough for” mean in the above examples?

#2

To me, it means “makes enough to feed”. So your first sentence sounds fine, but your second one sounds odd to me. Maybe you are making something that is served with meat, like tortillas. So it could be “This recipe makes enough tortillas to be served with two pounds of meat.”

This recipe makes enough for at least 2 pounds of meat, so if you’re making less, either halve the recipe or plan to serve it on consecutive nights.

In your first sentence this simply means ‘makes sufficient to feed 6 people’ In your second sentence there seems to be a word missing. The question is - makes enough what for 2 pounds of meet?
