I spend a lot of time refuting American stereotypes, but if this is accurate it's unacceptable and America is even farther gone than anyone thought.

p.s. The answer is stuffing/dressing you God damn communists. Rolls? Fucking rolls? Christ on a cross.

It's the taters for me so this map is accurate. The picky eater in me doesn't allow me to fuck with stuffing/dressing so that's all you bruddah...

This is where I got the map from...

The Most Popular Thanksgiving Side In Every State (Spoiler: Mashed Potatoes Are Still The Best)

Most Interesting Findings

  • Mashed potatoes are once again king, with 9 states loving mashed potatoes the most.
  • Right behind mashed potatoes is rolls- 4 states know that it’s not Thanksgiving without flaky, delicious bread.
  • In general, carbs are where it’s at– crescent rolls, stuffing, and dressing all made the map.
  • While most states are reaching for the carbs, Rhode Island is all about those carrots.
  • But bread should step aside, potatoes are the real choice of the people.
  • A staggering 15 states should be celebrating potato-day.
  • No judgement, but can we talk about how Montana’s most popular side is turkey gravy? Hopefully, eaten with other foods and not gulped solo.
  • Louisiana likes dressing best- which is Southern for stuffing.
  • Unsurprisingly, if you want a casserole the south is where you should go- preferably made by someone’s Meemaw or Granny
  • Mac N’ Cheese took a nosedive from last year’s performance.
  • Only two states (Virginia and Vermont) are sane enough to recognize it’s cheesy, gooey, baked goodness.

I'll entertain mashed potatoes (all other forms of potatoes can kick rocks) and stuffing being 1-2 in no particular order, but fucking rolls? or gravy?

Wait, everyone has mashed potatoes with turkey dinner in the US? No-one has the clearly superior roast potatoes?

Roast potatoes are great
Not a yuge fan of store turkey but I will eat a bunch if available
All sides are good, haven't turned down many in my life

I prefer a steak and sautéed veggie type meal on thanksgiving and xmas

All of these things are good.

I usually eat white or yellow potatoes but I buy russet for Thanksgiving because they mash better.

As long as you have the green bean casserole it’s a good day.

Mashed potatoes. Topped with gravy and I mix corn into it because I'm a wild man.
