I recently partnered with Del Monte (the makers of premium canned vegetables and so much more) to share with you some fun stats on what Americans love to eat during the holidays [link to: http://prhack.com/1Ny2qfE]. They just published their Del Monte Comfort Food Index, which ranked the Top 10 Holiday Comfort Foods.
1.  Potatoes (mashed or scalloped):  84% (percent who feel “comfort” by eating the food)
2.  Pie:  82%
3.  Baked goods (cookies & muffins):  81%
4.  Macaroni & cheese:  75%
5.  Cake:  71%
6.  Casserole:  69%
7.  Stews and hearty soups:  68%
8.  Meatballs (with or without pasta:  65%
9.  Sweet potatoes (mashed or cut):  61%
10.  Cornbread:  60%
Throughout the holiday season, we have pretty much all of these dishes in some form on the menu. We love potatoes in our household, but casseroles are always a huge hit too. Who doesn’t love casseroles?

  1. I love the taste of corn casserole but this is a different variation that what I’m used to. I’m definitely going to have to try this recipe. Looks delicious.
