Thanksgiving is upon us again. While the main course is rarely contested, some people usually switch some side items in and out. Depending on where you live, it may come down to collard greens or green beans. Baked potatoes or sweet potatoes. Dinner rolls or biscuits.
To see which state's most popular Thanksgiving side dish, Zippia looked to Google Trends to find the answer. If you're wondering about what Washingtonians are craving, it's...
While the Evergreen State is the only one who prefers this dish, other states want veggies, too, including Ohio, Idaho, New Mexico, Delaware, Rhode Island, and more.

It seems Americans also want more carbs with those potatoes. Zippia says they're reaching for rolls, stuffing, dressing, and more.
