Family Circle Indian-Spiced Turkey Breast
This recipe has 12 ingredients. It takes 10 minutes of prep and 6 hours of cooking and makes 6 servings. I had no problems finding any of the ingredients at my local grocery store and made no ingredient modifications. As written this recipe was literally a disaster. The taste was bland and the texture of the onions was not pleasant. So here are my modifications. First off caramelize the onions before adding to the crockpot. This will help the onions to fully cook and greatly improve the texture. The actual curry sauce wasn't bad, but needed more flavor. I would suggest increasing the total amount of curry powder to 1 tablespoon. The worst part was the turkey breast. It was much better after it had sat in the fridge for a few days and soaked up more flavor. The flavor might be better if the turkey breast was marinated before going in the fridge overnight and then in the crockpot.
When I have a week of recipe disasters it almost makes me want to stop trying new recipes. Then I remember that the whole reason that I decided to start this blog was to help other people find new recipes to try. Along with that idea I want my readers to realize that not every recipe turns out perfect and what needs to be changed to make it better. This recipe didn't turn out well. My husband was great and ate his serving and then politely told me he would take something else for his lunch the next day. My two boys ate one bite and refused to have any more. So all-in-all this recipe requires some work.
