Idaho’s Favorite Thanksgiving Side Is A Vegetable, Says Survey
As we prepare to take down the Halloween decorations and begin to check food items off our Thanksgiving menu, one food website believes they have figured out what Idahoans love the most as a turkey day side.
Thanksgiving is rapidly approaching. Over the weekend, my wife and I went out and bought the majority of food items that we will be cooking on Thanksgiving Day. We are hosting a small group and packed our garage freezer with the turkey, pie crusts, sage sausage, and other ingredients that will ultimately make it to our dinner table on Thursday, November 24.
Our turkey day table usually consists of about an 18 to 20-pound bird (we like leftover sandwiches), stuffing, rolls, macaroni and cheese, yams, and mashed potatoes and gravy. For dessert, we usually bake two pies. We get our ingredients early in November to avoid any last-minute chaos.
Personally, you can't top stuffing as far as being the best side dish for Thanksgiving. It's not very popular with some people I know, but it has to be on the menu in my house. A survey taken in 2021 by delish.com broke down favorite Thanksgiving sides on a state-by-state basis.
According to their findings, green bean casserole is the Gem State favorite to scoop down next to turkey. Mashed potatoes topped the list in the states of Colorado, Montana, Nevada, California, and Washington, but not in the region of the United States known for growing amazing spuds.
As an Idahoan, do you agree with this 2021 survey?
