With Thanksgiving this week many are hitting the internet hard, myself included, to find that perfect dish to bring to the family meal.

If you're from Illinois it's most likely you are one of the many searching for this recipe.

I almost find it hard to believe that this is what Illinoisans are looking for, for Thanksgiving. I know I'm not. Not even close.

If you're thinking recipes for apple, pumpkin

or pecan pie. Think again.

WGN found through Hayneedle's Facebook page, that Illinois' most googled recipe is for sweet potatoes.

Sweet potatoes? Really.

For our friends to the North in Wisconsin you guys are a little more normal I think, you're searching for Apple pie recipes.

In fact, according to this study, most of the country is looking for recipes to make apple, pumpkin or pecan pies.

But no Illinois must be different and look for sweet potatoes.

Hmm... Well, maybe it's for sweet potato pie. ?? OK, if that's the case, I'll give our state a pass.

Here's a look at the map of what each state's most searched for recipe.
