The most popular Thanksgiving sides in the country

What’s the most popular side dish at Thanksgiving? For me, it’s stuffing and it’s not even close. The question was the subject of a study conduction by who specializes in analyzing public data sets. They went on the hunt to find the most popular side in every state.

Using Google Trends, they found recipes that were spiking in search volume along with where in the country the recipes were more popular than others.

It’s no surprise, that mashed potatoes was the most popular recipe. Meanwhile, types of breads like rolls and cornbread, baked potatoes, macaroni and cheese, and charcuterie trays were other popular sides throughout the country.

What was Kansas’ most popular side dish according to their research? Creamed corn.

Typically, I’d be shocked at that result but nothing surprises me anymore when it comes to what Kansas likes most in these types of polls.
