Take it with a grain of salt (which is also important for Thanksgiving), but according to Mental Floss, General Mills just put out a list of the most popular Thanksgiving food in every state in the country. It’s based on the total searches for recipes from November 1st through Thanksgiving last year.
Texas was non-traditional: chicken spaghetti.
And pretty much every state’s most common search was for something unhealthy yet delicious. Except Montana: their top search was “oven roasted vegetables.”
The rest of the results were all over the board. There were lots of states searching for different pie recipes, including Delaware, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, and South Dakota.
California and Virginia both searched for mac-and-cheese recipes, buffalo chicken dip was number one in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia, and Missouri focused on the day after Thanksgiving by searching for breakfast casserole.
