Every single family does Thanksgiving a little bit differently. Families have secret recipes that have been passed down through generations.

Others keep it a secret that the mashed potatoes that their mother-in-law loves actually comes from a box.

Green Bean Casserole Was the Most Hated

It didn't surprise me very much to see that green bean casserole was Colroado's least favorite side dish. I believe the reason why is because everybody makes it so differently. One person mentioned they only like green bean casserole the way their mom makes it.

I feel like that has to be a common answer for a lot of different Thanksgiving foods whether it be side dishes or the main turkey.
