Michigan’s Most Popular Comfort Food Is Perfect For Cuddly Cold Weather
Thanksgiving is right around the corner!
I cannot stop thinking about the fried turkey, yams, mac & cheese, and all of the leftovers and servings I will be having that weekend.
If you are struggling to figure out what to make, I may be able to help with that.
"over 100 foods that people classify as 'comfort foods' - the foods they reach for when they need a pick-me-up. Then, using Google Trends, we determined which foods were most popular across the country and in each state..."
This study showed that people in my home state of Maryland love a gooey grilled cheese, and other people in Arkansas and Kentucky love chicken and dumplings.
What is Michigan's top searched comfort food?
Michiganders, alongside Nebraska natives, love a hot bowl of chicken noodle soup.
I really hope it is not from a can. I hope people are indulging in homemade chicken noodle soup.
If you are having a hard time figuring out your entire Thanksgiving menu, this survey also found out what the top searched side dish is for every state.
Many states love side dishes, such as cheese grits, mashed potatoes, stuffing, garlic bread, etc.
However, it seems like Michiganders are trying to figure out how to make the perfect green bean casserole.
Now, I have never eaten a green bean casserole. So, if you make one this year, feel free to drop a plate off for me. Thanks!
No feast is complete without a sweet ending - dessert.
While many states love pound cake, cinnamon rolls, monkey bread, banana bread, etc., you may want to make a strawberry shortcake this holiday season if you live in Michigan as I do.
This sounds like a solid food lineup. Again, if you have extras you want to get rid of, I would be very happy to help you!
