We're just two weeks from Thanksgiving (insert mind-blown emoji here). Have you started planning what you'll make for the big Thanksgiving dinner? If you need some help deciding, I have the favorite Thanksgiving side dishes for Minnesota, Iowa, and Wisconsin for 2022.

What Do You Make for Thanksgiving?

What do you usually make for Turkey Day? Do you have turkey or do you go another direction? Or are you usually responsible for bringing a side? My husband and I have yet to be the ones in the family to host Thanksgiving (I'm sure that time is coming though, and honestly I'm kind of excited, I like hosting people!). That means we're always bringing some sort of side or dessert. For the past couple of years, I've been in charge of the pie. Year one was a big fail but last year went well!

Wisconsin's Favorite Thanksgiving Side Dish for 2022

Let's get to our favorite side dishes for Thanksgiving! Because let's be honest, the sides are the best part of the meal. Sorry, not sorry. Our friends in Wisconsin, according to this study by Zippia, love having some delicious mashed potatoes. You can't go wrong with those!

Iowa's Favorite Thanksgiving Side Dish for 2022

Then we've got Iowa's favorite side, which is corn. Have you ever had corn on Thanksgiving, because I don't remember my family ever doing that. Then again, corn would pair well with the turkey, stuffing, and mashed potatoes so I wouldn't be mad about it.

Minnesota's Favorite Thanksgiving Side Dish for 2022

And finally, Minnesota's favorite Turkey Day side is... also mashed potatoes. Seriously, you can't go wrong! You put some butter on it, make a little hole in the middle and drown it in gravy. I'm not the only one that does that, right? So good!
