Everyone has a favorite Thanksgiving side dish -- that one food you'll inevitably fill up on as you glop a second, third, or fourth serving onto your plate. Maybe you're a sucker for stuffing, sweet potato casserole, or even yams (no, they're definitely not the same thing). But how do preferences differ coast to coast? Does geography play into the popularity of certain sides or desserts?
Fortunately, the answers to those burning questions are a little clearer now thanks to a new infographic that identifies the most popular Thanksgiving foods in every state.
Chicago Deep Dish: Pizza or Casserole?
This new survey of favorite Turkey Day food was compiled by a research team at General Mills, which looked into the most frequently searched recipes in a given state between November 1 and Thanksgiving of 2016 on three different popular recipe sites: BettyCrocker.com, Pillsbury.com, and Tablespoon.com.
The range of recipes may be a bit more diverse than you'd expect, and a couple whose inclusion in a Thanksgiving sides spread may seem a bit puzzling (looking at you, Mississippi). To find out where your state settles into the mix, check out the map (shown above) and the full breakdown:
