While Turkey may be the star of the show for Thanksgiving dinner, the supporting cast, a.k.a. the sides, play a pretty important role for a lot of people. And for many, it wouldn’t be Thanksgiving dinner without them.
A new Campbell’s poll finds:
90% of folks plan to serve the same number or even more sides for their Thanksgiving meal this year. But they won’t necessarily be the same old same old, with 54% saying they plan to try new recipes this year.
So, what are America’s favorite sides? The top Five include:
- Mashed Potatoes
- Sweet Potatoes
- Green Bean Casserole
- Mac & Cheese
And it sounds like for many, Thanksgiving is actually all about the sides.
In fact, half of those polled say they’d be happy only eating side dishes on Thanksgiving.
And another 73% say they’ve complained about not having enough space on their plate for their sides.
To celebrate the side dish, Campbell is now selling what they are calling their “Holiday Sides Plate.” The limited-edition plate features five compartments to hold the average number of sides at a Thanksgiving meal, with two of them a bit larger for those wanting an extra scoop of their favorite. It’s also microwave safe for the 98% of people who will eat sides for leftovers. Click here for more details. Proceeds from the sale go to Feeding America.
