Mashed And GravyMashed potatoes were #1 in NINE states . . . baked potatoes were #1 in three . . . and six more had variations like hashbrown casserole – Tennessee, sweet potato casserole – Alabama, and CAULIFLOWER mashed potatoes, which was the #1 side in Delaware.

Rolls were #1 in four states . . . green beans and collard greens topped the list in three states apiece. Georgia’s preference is the collard greens.
