Turkey to Go Sandwich

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

directions

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

    Do not follow this recipe. It tastes nothing like MN State Fair Turkey To Go. Spices are way off and all you taste is the chicken broth. Use the other recipes on the web that include course ground pepper, Lawry’s seasoning salt. Use the natural turkey juice/ turkey broth. My husband and I would eat Turkey To Go 2-3 times a week when it used to be in the Skyway downtown Minneapolis ( same people who run it at the Fair and Target Field) . It should be white and dark meat with the black flecks of pepper.

    I followed the recipe exactly. The 3 lb Butterball turkey breast was $11.99!!!!! Of that, 1/2 pound was the unnessary gravy packet. I cooked this as directed with all the seasonings. It was so tasteless!! This tasted nothing like the state fair Turkey to Go. It was underseasoned. Why no pepper? Why no salt? A waste of money and time!

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