Take turkey back from the holidays and start making it weekday fare. This turkey roast cooks up juicy and tender in the crock pot. And the leftovers make amazing sandwiches. From the Most Loved Slow Cooker Creations cookbook.

LOVED this! This will definitely be made again and again in our house. Everyone liked it asked for more.
This was a very tasty dish and super simple to make which is a busy mom's dream come true. I was so excited to have a gravy turn out in the crock pot! I have never used evaporated milk to make gravy before maybe that is why. Everyone in the family agreed that this recipe is a keeper however; they all requested that next time I leave the carrots and celery out since it seems to over power the taste of the gravy. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe. Made as a recipenap for AUS/NZ Swap #24
