Review: Turducken Sausage Sandwich from Giggles’ Campfire Grill

Giggles’ has been a Machinery Hill landmark for years now since the Fair revamped this corner as the North Woods Experience, and perhaps no other vendor better matches its surroundings. While the large stand suggests a traditional Northern Minnesota cabin, their yearly food innovations are anything but ordinary. Giggles’ consistently invents unique, and uniquely Minnesotan, new foods with seeming ease.

This year’s new offering is perhaps the most convoluted yet. A combination of turkey, duck and chicken blended into one sausage, with a wonderful fennel bun and a sweet relish makes for a complicated mix of flavors, yet they all come through and they all work wonderfully together. The sweet relish adds a bright pop of color too, making this more attractive than your average sausage in a bun. At $7, this is great value for such a meaty sausage, and after finishing it, you want another one. This is easily the best thing I’ve tried yet in this nascent Fair. Trek up to Machinery Hill just for this, it’s well worth it!
