Check out the most Googled Thanksgiving recipes in Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois and Wisconsin
That Thanksgiving The countdown is on and right now many of us are finding that we have no idea how to prepare the family favorite dishes that we want everyone to enjoy on the big turkey day. My mom is coming to Minnesota from Iowa this year and I just texted her:
Sometimes our family members don’t reply us in time (#just saying) and we are left with the only other resource we know of today. Also known as Google. In fact, this tool is so popular that the New York Times published a list of each state’s most 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 next to turkey
I have no idea what this dish is, but apparently Illinois is searching hard for the Hawaiian salad recipe. In summary, this is not a meal I would enjoy because it mixes marshmallows with tropical fruits. #puke
If you want to try the Hawaiian salad, you can find the recipe here.
Wisconsin’s most Googled Thanksgiving recipe next to turkey
I’m a little shocked that Wisconsin’s choice has nothing to do with cheese or beer. But maybe that’s why people have to google the recipe? I don’t know this answer but I do know this, Wisconsinites review ingredients and directions to best make brownberry stuffing. Pistachio Fluff follows in second place.
If you would like to try the green pistachio fluff, you can find the recipe here.
Next to turkey, the most Googled Thanksgiving recipe in Iowa
I grew up in Iowa, so the most Googled recipe is one that I know very well. In fact, one of my kids suggested that we should have this at our Thanksgiving table this year. It has an air of health because it contains an apple, but I’ll say 100% it’s not a healthy treat. It contains Snickers and biting into it will make you feel like you won the lottery. Snicker Apple Salad – also known as Snicker Salad is a treat and anyone can make it. It requires zero skill.

Minnesota’s most-googled Thanksgiving recipe next to turkey
I’m looking at the Minnesota recipe menu and have lived in the state for 22 years and have NEVER downed this side dish. Obviously a lot of people did, but they never told me. Wild rice casserole is our favorite recipe on Google. But guess what?! Snicker Salad is next on our list, so it looks like we Iowans are starting to change our eating habits.
If you fancy trying something Minnesotan, here is the Wild Rice Casserole recipe.
