dee-lish, kids loved it ... didn't chg a thing...put turkey frozen in crock pot on high, placed a clean kitchen towel over it then the lid on top (turkey was taller than my crock) ... started cooking at 8 a.m. by 7 p.m. waalaa .... oh yes p.s. the gravy/giblet bag came out easy half way thru I pierced it with fork and allowed liquid to drain into contents....<br/><br/>my girls kindergarten & 3 rd grade asked for sandwiches for 2 days<br/><br/>definate keeper...thanks for sharing SweetJ
Easy and delicious!
This is a really great way to cook turkey! I did use a pre-seasoned boneless breast, so I used the beer (hefeweizen) and butter, but skipped the onion soup mix so it wouldn't be too salty. The turkey is really moist and flavorful. I look forward to trying the full recipe with regular turkey breast. Thanks for posting, I will make this again!
