So what's the most popular Christmas dish in New Jersey this year?

Creamed Spinach

Not what you were expecting? Here's what Food Fire + Knives said about this result:

"New Jersey is home to a vibrant immigrant population with Southeast Asian cultures heavily favoring spinach-based dishes. Additionally, people in NJ and NY are aggressively turning to health-conscious options like spinach and kale."

Although creamed spinach is definitely not the centerpiece of your dining room table when the family gathers for Christmas dinner, but you have to admit - When done right, creamed spinach is pretty tasty.

But better than stuffing? Mashed potatoes? Christmas ham? This could be debated.
