When I first heard that "turkey pot pie" was Minnesota's most searched-for Thanksgiving recipe I was taken aback. Then as I thought about it more, it makes sense.

Turkey pot pie wasn't the most popular dish to be sought out online this year though, that honor goes to baked brie. Not even remotely related to turkey, baked brie recipes saw a 3,883% increase in searches this year. So if you show up to your party with one in hand thinking you're unique and original, you might be in for a rude awakening (and a lot of cheese).
