You’ll Never Guess New Jersey’s Top Thanksgiving Side Dish
When you ask a Jersey Shore resident what his or her favorite Thanksgiving side dish is, you're going to get a lot of different answers. The one answer you almost certainly won't get is the side dish that has recently;y been named the top one in the state. It doesn't even make my top 5, and it probably wouldn't make yours either.
So, what are the first things you thought of? I'm guessing stuffing has to be the first and in some cases, the only thing that crosses your mind. It should, but doesn't have to be, homemade Stuffing in a box is better than no stuffing at all.
And if the stuffing wasn't your first instinct, it probably was cranberry sauce. Same deal for me there. I want it fresh, but I'm glad to plop it out of the can anytime.
And we haven't even talked about mashed potatoes, green beans, or casserole. But guess what? None of these amazing side dishes are considered the most popular side dish in the Garden State.
The information was compiled by South Florida Reporter and they used data from Google Trends to pinpoint which side dish was being searched in each state.
And when all the Googling was done, the great people of New Jersey apparently spent more time searching stuffed mushrooms more than anything else, So we are now the stuffed mushroom state.
Maybe I haven't spent enough time on the stuffed mushroom bandwagon to fully appreciate it, but I'm not going to lie. I feel pretty disappointed. And if you feel all alone in the stuffed mushroom state, don't. We are not alone.
Alaska stands beside us as the only two Thanksgiving Stuffed Mushroom state in the nation.
