Here are some other interesting findings the site reported about Southern states:

  • Georgia has given up on turkey altogether and is sticking with honey-baked ham.
  • On the other hand, cornbread dressing from Louisiana looks like the perfect alternative to a dry ol’ stuffing.
  • Only North Carolina and South Carolina understand the importance of a fantastic mac and cheese with your Thanksgiving dinner.
