I had high hopes for this and it fell flat. Not sure what everyone is raving about in their reviews. I knew the 4 reviews before mine were not enough for a true test on the recipe but I was looking for something different. Something is totally missing in this recipe and I haven't a clue where to start to make it better and I cook a lot. It was good enough to try once that that is it. It wasn't so awful it had to be thrown out. Cooking it gives me another data point when looking for new recipes what blends well and what doesn't. It is good to cook new foods because you learn certain things do pair well and some just fall flat like this one did.

I made this for a small get together on Thanksgiving and it turned out great! The gravy was one of the intriguing features of this, little sweet, little spicy, and went extremely well with the turkey and side of mashed potatoes. It doesn't have a pronounced citrus flavor however everything blended together very well. Thanks for a great turkey that's out of the ordinary!

I had 3 turkey breast rolls, wrapped with bacon and rosemary and tied (bought this way) that I cooked in the slow cooker following this recipe. I forgot the paprika but followed everything else and my turkey rolls were to die for along with the gravy! Since I was cooking them one day and eating the next, I was able to drain off the grease (there was not too much) and then thicken the gravy. Thanks for a wonderful recipe!

Good recipe, but seems to be lacking a little bit in the citrus flavor. Still good though.
