Turkey Breast & Gravy To Travel?

My husband & I have been invited to a friends house for Thanksgiving. They are vegetarians, so they will not be cooking the turkey, but they suggested that we make & bring the turkey and gravy.

I plan on buying a turkey breast (since there will only be 3 people eating turkey) and making the gravy, but will have to travel about 40 minutes to their house.

Any suggestions on baking the turkey breast, etc. and what to put it in to keep it warm for the trip?

  1. I'm also transporting a cooked turkey about 1 hour from my home. I'm still trying to figure out the best way to transport the bird without losing crispy skin.

    The gravy will go in a thermos and will be finished on site with drippings.

      I like your idea about putting the gravy in a, but I don't have one. I may just leave it in a pot and take it that way. I have the same question you do you transport the turkey (breast) without losing the crispy skin? Can anyone help us out?

    2. T Florence did a turkey breast on "How to Boil Water" that looked pretty good.
      You might wrap a couple of bricks in foil, heat them in the oven while the breast is cooking, lay a couple of towels in the bottom of a cooler, and put the bricks in followed by the breast, tented very loosely with foil. This is just a theory.
