Thanksgiving is almost upon us, and in our humble opinion, the big day can't come fast enough.

Thanksgiving is a welcome holiday to pause and be grateful for what we have. Not only is it the perfect opportunity to spend time with family and friends, but maybe you and your loved ones have special holiday traditions. Some people like watching the Macy's Parade or football, while others love celebrating 'friendsgiving', preparing to go Black Friday shopping, and more.

But of course, the main Turkey Day event is the FOOD in all its scrumptious, amazing glory. Everyone has their favorite Thanksgiving foods, but what about side dishes? Well, that's where Taste of Home comes in.

The recipe-focused website shared this list of the most popular Thanksgiving side dishes in all 50 states. We're talking stuffing, rolls, green bean casserole, potatoes, mac & cheese, and all the delicious delicacies we look forward to each year. As it turns out, New Hampshire's most popular Thanksgiving side dish is also the nation's most popular: mashed potatoes.

It is impossible not to love mashed potatoes. The simple dish goes great with everything, which makes it an optimal side for Thanksgiving. And when you add extra butter and a sprinkling of pepper? Absolute heaven.
