A lot of our grocery shopping lists look the same this time of the year:
  • Turkey
  • Gravy
  • Stuffing
  • Potatoes
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Green Beans
  • Corn
  • Pumpkin Pie

But in South Dakota, we apparently like to add something more associated with Easter to our array of Thanksgiving side dishes.

According to the website Home Method, the Mount Rushmore State is one of four states in America that lists deviled eggs as the number-one accompaniment to our turkey dinner.

House Method

South Dakota, Oklahoma, West Virginia, and Wyoming are all on the deviled egg bandwagon. And while that puts us in a distinct minority, it's not as exclusive as the deep-fried turkey club, which has just one member - Kentucky.

As for the more traditional things on our Thanksgiving table, Thrillist has ranked the side dishes from worst to best:

14. Corn

13. Green beans

12. Glazed Carrots

11. Roasted root vegetables

10. Rolls

9. Candied yams/sweet potatoes

8. Green bean casserole

7. Cornbread

6. Brussels sprouts

5. Gravy

4. Stuffing

3. Cranberry sauce

2. Macaroni & cheese

1. Mashed potatoes
