Sometimes, our family members don't answer us in a timely manner (#justsaying) and we are left with the only other resource that we know today.  Aka Google.  In fact, this tool is so popular that the New York Times published a list of each state's top-searched Thanksgiving recipes.  And if you thought you knew the top picks for Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, and Wisconsin, you might be pleasantly surprised!

Illinois' Most Googled Thanksgiving Recipe Besides Turkey

I have no idea what this dish is but apparently, Illinois is searching hard for the recipe to make Hawaiian Salad.  To sum it up, this is not a food I would enjoy because there are marshmallows mixed with tropical fruit.  #Barf

Wisconsin's Most Googled Thanksgiving Recipe Besides Turkey

I'm a little shocked that Wisconsin's choice doesn't have anything to do with cheese or beer.  But maybe that is the reason people are needing to Google the recipe?  I don't know that answer but I do know this, Wisconsinites are checking out the ingredients and directions to make Brownberry Stuffing the most.  A close second is Pistachio Fluff.

Iowa's Most Googled Thanksgiving Recipe Besides Turkey

I grew up in Iowa so the most Googled recipe is one I know very well.  In fact, one of my kids suggested we have this at our Thanksgiving table this year.  It has a glimpse of being healthy because it has an apple in it, but I will say 100%, it is not a healthy treat.  It has Snickers in it and when you bite into one, you feel like you won the lottery.  Snicker Apple Salad - aka Snicker Salad is a treat and anyone could make this.  It requires zero skill.

Try making Snicker Salad this year, but first, find the recipe here.

I am glancing at Minnesota's recipe pick and I've lived in this state for 22 years and I have NEVER thrown this side dish down my throat.  Obviously, lots of people have but they have never shared it with me.  Wild Rice Casserole is our favorite recipe to Google.  But guess what?!  Snicker Salad is next on our list so it looks like us Iowans are starting to change your eating habits.

If you are up to try something Minnesotan, you can find the recipe for Wild Rice Casserole here.
