Great for sandwiches--the lemon and garlic added extra punch to the taste of the turkey.

I can't believe how forgiving this recipe is! I had the flu and went to take a nap which turned into all night- when I got up, I remembered the roast and despaired. Even with hours more cooking time, it was wonderful. fragrant, tender, perfect for sandwiches and serving with potatoes or rice. A tiny bit on the crumbly side at first from thhe overcooking, but wrapping in plastic and chilling soon took care of that! Thanks so much, I've looked for a good, easy way to cook turkey for years!
