With just a few short weeks until Thanksgiving, meal planning might be on the mind.

There are so many side dish options to choose from to accompany your holiday bird on the table.

Most families likely stick to their annual favorites which might just tie into regional trends across the United States.

Based on Google Trend analysis by Zippia, certain states prefer different side dishes.

The findings came after Zippia analyzed what side dish was the most searched for on the web in each state during the month of November.

For Floridians, that side dish is sweet potato casserole. There’s only one other state with that same result and that’s Tennessee.

A strong favorite along the East coast of the U.S. was macaroni and cheese, coming in with seven states

Mashed potatoes reigned supreme as the most searched in 10 states.

The Midwest is all about casseroles, especially green bean casserole.

It’s apparent that the U.S. likes its carbs with 47 states searching for something carby, cheesy, potato filled and delicious. The other three states went for vegetables with corn, cream corn and a side salad in Maine.
