My attempt to duplicate a MN State Fair favorite; after attempting to contact the MN Turkey Grower's Association with no luck in obtaining the secret recipe. From what I understand, the state fair turkey is deep fried -- this version is crockpot cooked and very easy.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Remove string from turkey breast (thawed, if you bought a frozen one).
  2. Place in crockpot.
  3. Add broth, seasonings and butter.
  4. Place a sheet of foil over breast meat to cover.
  5. Cover with crockpot lid.
  6. Cook on low 6-8 hours.
  7. Remove breast meat from crockpot, reserve liquid.
  8. Shred meat with forks.
  9. Place back in crockpot - add enough of the reserved liquid to moisten.
  10. Serve on buns.
  11. You may garnish with BBQ sauce - but I personally like it just as it is.

We did a taste test with a couple different recipes claiming to be just like the famous Turkey to Go. This won hands down!
