Butter & Herb Turkey

My kids love a turkey meal, and this one falls off the bone. It's the ideal recipe for special family times and holidays. —Rochelle Popovic, South Bend, Indiana

    Haven't made this yet but plan to for Easter. If I cook it on Sat. How should I reheat it on Sunday? Sounds delicious.

    I had the turkey in the crockpot in 10 minutes and didn't have to worry about it the rest of the day. It was tender and juicy and makes plenty for our family of 5 plus leftovers for more meals later! Super easy!
