MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 14, 2014

"The first time I made this was for a family supper during our vacation. Put it in the slow cooker while we were gone for the day. Came home to the delicious aroma of turkey. Served it with lettuce salad & rolls, & had an easy, delicious meal. I had to use foil to cover the top of my slow cooker because the turkey was too big for the lid. That has worked just fine. I make this whenever turkey is on sale!"

"I made this recipe for Sunday supper. The only thing I had to do was cook it 1 hour longer to get the proper temperature (the meat was a little over 6 lb). The meat was very moist and tasted just right. I will definitely do this again! Thanks for your crock pot recipe."

"The turkey turned out very moist, but it had a kind of 'boiled' smell, I didn't really like how this turned out. Would rather it have a bit of browned taste."

"I have been staying away from adding carbs to recipes. I will make this recipe, but will use turkey broth, a little butter, and herbs like fresh garlic, thyme, a little rosemary. Love the idea to put it in a crock pot and it's done at dinner time! Cannot wait to make this!"
