Thanksgiving is approaching rapidly this year – meaning the delicious menu is on the horizon. Turkey, stuffing, green bean casserole, and traditional Thanksgiving foods will likely be on the table this year.

Illinois’ favorite? Mashed potatoes and salad.

Every year, Campbell releases its “State of the Sides,” which shows each state’s favorite side dishes.

The top dish in the United States is mashed potatoes. Second place went to stuffing/dressing. Third place was macaroni and cheese, and sweet potatoes and green bean casserole took the fourth and fifth place spots.

More than 65% of Americans prefer side dishes compared to the main entrée.

Indiana and Wisconsin both chose stuffing as their favorite side dish.

The average American household serves five side dishes with their holiday meals.
