While the most popular Thanksgiving side is mashed potatoes, popular sides mostly depend on which state you’re in.


Some states that are outliers include North Dakota, who have an interest in 'keto soup.' Also, Indiana, whose residents are searching ‘deviled eggs’ that are unique interests to these states alone.

Below is a list of the top five most-searched Thanksgiving side dishes in every state, according to Google. The list is in order starting with the most popular.

Green bean casserole came in at the number two spot as the second most popular side. It appears that people in Arizona, Michigan, Nebraska, New Mexico, Ohio, and Texas are big fans of this dish.


Meanwhile, casseroles are also big hits in the country—Alaskans like a hash brown casserole. Floridians and Tennesseans want sweet potato casserole, and those living in Kentucky cook broccoli casserole.

3. Mac and cheese

One of the few foods that are almost exclusively set aside for Thanksgiving is stuffing — and it's an absolute necessity in the northeast. 'Stuffing' was the most popular search for Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont.

Simultaneously, some states like Alabama also have ‘stuffing’ as their top search. However, instead, they call this side ‘dressing’.

5. Biscuits and rolls
