Five ingredients and a few hours in the slow cooker will give you twelve delicious garlic-cheese turkey sandwiches. This is a Betty Crocker recipe. Look for garlic-and-herb spreadable cheese in the dairy case. It's available in several flavor variations, so experiment to discover which one you like best in this recipe. Add a New Orleans twist by sprinkling sliced pimiento-stuffed green olives over the sandwiches to give them the taste of the Crescent City's famous muffuletta sandwich.
