I do a big Christmas Eve dinner as well, for about 20. Luckily I dont have to transport anything, lol! We always do a big ham, and then just buy a decent turkey breast for those who dont want ham. We are lucky (well I think it is a good thing) that a store close by sell Turkey broth. We always keep a can or two for gravy and dressing. We just roast it in the oven. Make a list of the stuff that you have to do ahead of time, and see what you can prepare in advance. Are you able to prepare the dressing and then cook it when you get to your destination? Same question on the gravy? You can easily cook the meat, pull it out of the oven and leave. Your travel time will be the time that your meat can rest before its cut. No real advice, sorry. Karen is great, she will help you!

wow! you all are a great help! esp, you, K=roni! I'm printing all this out. Yes, I'm HOPING to do a trial run on Wed this week. Didn't realize I COULD do so much ahead of time?

My sis said that for our family dressing - I need:
Cornbread, whitebread, Onion, Celery, Sage, & "Poultry Seasoning". ?
I was wondering if broth - even from a can would do that trick?

I'll be printing out & studying all y'all's (I'm from Atlanta) advice here. and working on a trial run. I'm sure I'll have more questions in time. THANK Y'ALL!!!! :D

Poultry seasoning is just a spice blend that they sell to people who don't have a well-

stocked spice rack.

Poultry seasoning is primarily sage, here's a recipe for a homemade blend:

I like your blend recipe better than the one I found! I quit buying the blends; I DO have a well stocked spice rack! The blends are great if you don't, though, as long as they are not mostly salt!
