"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!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 23, 2014

"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."
