"This was easy, convenient, and the family loved the flavors of rosemary and garlic ever so slightly flavoring the moist turkey. A keeper."

"I was skeptical cooking a turkey breast in the slow cooker. Was amazed at how delicious and moist it was! Made the recipe almost exact, omitted the brown sugar and used low sodium chicken broth instead of water. Will certainly make again and will experiment with other herbs! Thank you Heidi"

"Love using the slow cooker to cook a turkey and this was a great recipe for it. The turkey came out with lots of flavor And very tender. I also tried the same recipe but used my pressure cooker and it turned out great in there too."

"Very good! I had a turkey breast that wasn't quite 6 lbs, it was done at 3.5 hours. I didn't have fresh rosemary so I used dried that I mixed in with the salt, pepper, and brown sugar."

"Great recipe for a after church dinner. Cooks while away and doesn't dry out."

"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!"
