MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 29, 2014

"This was tasty and moist. I substituted garlic salt for the dried garlic/seasoned salt and added some poultry seasoning to the other ingredients. I had a 6 pound turkey breast which I cooked for 5 hours. I think it was probably done a little before that, but I wanted to make sure it was thoroughly cooked. This is perfect if you are serving a small number of guests."

MY REVIEW

"Everybody enjoyed this at Thanksgiving dinner today. My 7-1/2 lb. turkey breast was done to perfection in 6 hours, moist and flavorful but not falling apart. Taking the skin off before cooking was a bit of a project, but I'm glad I did it because we don't eat the skin anyway, and this way the meat was able to absorb all the flavor of the spice rub. I'm not a fan of Italian seasoning so I subbed rosemary for that, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. And using the slow cooker freed up oven space I needed for other things, so that was a bonus."

"This came out perfect.

Can the same recipe be used for a a 6 pound boneless turkey breast?"

"Perhaps I shouldn't review this, as I chose my own spices, but stuck to the recipe otherwise. :) This was way too easy, and a great way to make turkey in the summer months, as to not heat up the house. It was delicious - the whole family loved it, and the leftovers are scrumptious!"

"I was making a ham for Christmas dinner and decided at the last moment to try a turkey breast in the crock pot as well. This was so simple - and delicious. Very moist! I'm making another one today because there were not enough leftovers for sandwiches!"
