Should I double, do 1 1/2, or what for these recipes for Chrustmas dinner? They are all going to be used as sides and there will be 14 people.
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)

I would double the first recipe.
For the second recipe, maybe x1-1/2. You can make slightly smaller latkes in order to have more.

It depends. Are you the only Persian making side dishes? If there are a lot of sides, people will generally not take a full serving, so the recipes should be enough. But if those are the only ones, I'd double them both.

Similar to what the others say.
If you have a big menu and/or don't want many leftovers I would double the green bean recipe (to serve 12) and leave the latkes at 1× (gives everone 2+ latkes).
On the other hand, if you have fewer dishes, know your guests love these &/or don't mind leftovers, triple the green beans and make 1.5-2X latke recipe (each could have 5).
BTW, cooked latkes (without sauce) freeze beautifully.
