Reviews for Italian Turkey Sandwiches
"Made this to go along with soup night. Very good and came out super tender. I did add a few pepperoncinis as suggested by other reviewers. Next time I may try a Carolina vinegar based BBQ sauce as a topping for the sandwiches."
"I was disappointed that the turkey was not as flavorful as expected. I put it in the freezer in the hopes I can reinvent it in some way, but I really don't have any idea how. I would not make it again as written."
"Very very good!"
"I love slow cooker recipies. This one was a big hit with my family. I will definitely have to make this again."
"Absolutely delicious! I had a boneless turkey breast that was 3 lbs so I cut all ingredients in half and cooked on low fo 3 hours in my 4 quart crockpot. The meat turned out perfect. My family has already requested that I make it again."
"My husband and family loved these sandwiches. Wonderful flavor, hearty sandwich filling, moist turkey--overall a real winner. I served the shredded turkey with my homemade hamburger buns and we had a feast!"
"It was good, cooked mine for 10 hours since I couldn't make it home earlier, it turned out fine, needed a little more flavor, made 6 sandwiches and enough to send home with my son for a few days!"
"I agree with the other reviews. Delicious. Used potato dinner rolls instead of the kaiser rolls, and I really enjoyed it. It was perfect for brunch. I didn't add anything but used a frozen bone in turkey breast so cooked for 10 hours instead of 5. I added the sauce and then strained off the extra by shredding the turkey right into a colander."
"So yummy & flavorful. I used boneless/skinless chicken breast instead of the turkey & I added a can of Italian diced tomatoes. Delicious. I also agree with the other comments... really good with peperoncini's."
"This was a fantastic sandwich! A few banana peppers made it out of this world"
