A research team at General Mills compiled the most searched for recipes in each state between November 1 and Thanksgiving of 2016 on the recipe sites,, and to find out what was the most popular dish in each state.

For California, the top dish was mac n’ cheese, a dish we shared with Virgina. While most states had desserts and appropriately Fall-themed dishes, a few did have weird searches. Case in point is ‘Chicken spaghetti’ as searched by both Texas and Mississippi.
