The biggest game day of the year is this Sunday, and Google took a look at what the country was planning to make for the Super Bowl. From classic appetizers, like Buffalo chicken dip, to less traditional options, like paleo salmon cakes, here are the most uniquely searched recipes in each state for Super Bowl LIV.

Google

Alabama

"Rotel dip" is the top-searched recipe in Alabama this year. Rotel dip is similar to queso and typically made with Velveeta cheese and a can of Rotel tomatoes and chiles. We've made this recipe a little more sophisticated and much healthier. Try our Butternut Squash Queso Fundido for a funky spin on this classic dip.

Arkansas, Kansas, Ohio, South Dakota and Virginia

Buffalo chicken dip is always one of the most-searched recipes for Super Bowl Sunday each year. This creamy, spicy dip is always a crowd-pleaser, and our slow-cooker version practically cooks itself.

Alaska

It looks like Alaska won't be enjoying their Super Bowl the same way as most of the country. The top-searched recipe for this state is "paleo salmon cakes," which sound super delicious—just a little unorthodox for game day. Check out our Salmon Cakes with Olives, Lemon & Dill for a zesty and refreshing spin.

Arizona, Idaho, Missouri, Oregon and Wyoming

Seven-layer bean dip is another top-trending recipe for game day. This appetizer is piled high with all of our favorite condiments—refried beans, sour cream, cheese, salsa, guacamole, lettuce and olives. What more could you want in an app? You can make our Southwestern Layered Bean Dip ahead of time for easy hosting come Sunday.

California, Mississippi, Nebraska, New York and West Virginia

Artichoke dip is another game day classic, and it is on the top of five states' list for Super Bowl Sunday. We love to serve this dip warm—try our Slow-Cooker Spinach Artichoke Dip for a healthier spin on the original.

Colorado

Colorado is speaking our language when it comes to planning our game day spread. The top trending recipe in this state is "sweet potato skins." Our Sweet Potato Skins with Guacamole is the perfect way to use up the rest of your avocados while pleasing your crowd.

Connecticut, Georgia, Maryland, South Carolina and Vermont

Nothing says "game day" like a hearty bowl of chili—especially during the first weekend of February. This was the most popular side dish option, snagging the top spot in six states. Minnesota specifically was looking for some creamy white chicken chili. Yum. Try our version of White Chicken Chili or a more traditional Cowboy Beef & Bean Chili recipe.

Delaware

Similar to Colorado, Delaware is also looking to incorporate sweet potatoes into their game day festivities. The most-searched recipe was for "baked sweet potatoes," and we have plenty of ways to serve them up. Whether you're looking for Twice-Baked Sweet Potatoes or Roasted Sweet Potato Wedges, we have you covered, Delaware!

Florida, Montana, New Jersey, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Texas

These seven states are clearly craving some cake. Our One-Bowl Chocolate Cake is a fan favorite and saves you time when cleaning up the dishes at the end of the night. We call that a win in our book. Rhode Island was specifically jonesing for cupcakes, and our Chocolate Peanut Butter Molten Cupcakes are sure to please.

Hawaii

Hawaii has its mind right for game day—their top-searched recipe this year is for "chicken club ranch roll-ups." Roll-ups are a great option if you're serving dinner at your game day party this year, and our recipes for BBQ Ranch Wraps and Buffalo Chicken Wraps will help keep everyone's bellies full and happy.

Illinois

Jalapeño poppers topped Illinois' list, and we were pretty surprised this recipe wasn't #1 for other states. Looks like most of us can't take the heat! Our Air-Fryer Jalapeño Poppers are a great way to enjoy this spicy app without having to deep-fry them.

Indiana

Indiana is looking to make things easy when it comes to game day entertaining this year, and we are all for it. "Ham and cheese sliders" snagged the top spot this year. Our Slow-Cooker Barbecue Brisket Sliders are a festive option for the big game—and do most of the work for you.

Iowa and Michigan

Iowa and Michigan were also looking for a sweet treat this year, and their top-searched recipe is "football cookies." Pick up a football-shaped cookie cutter, whip up a batch of our Melt-in-Your-Mouth Sugar Cookies and you have a recipe for success.

Kentucky, Utah, New Mexico and Washington

These states are looking for pizza-related snacks this weekend. While you could just scavenge what's left in the frozen section of your local grocery store, our Pepperoni Pizza Rolls taste way better and only take 30 minutes of prep work.

Louisiana

It's still soup season, and Louisiana is looking for taco soup come February 2. Our Beef & Bean Taco Soup comes together in 30 minutes and saves beautifully in the freezer for dinner Monday night. Serve with some cheese, sour cream and fresh jalapeños, and you have the perfect game day feast!

Maine

Deviled eggs are top priority for Maine's football fans this year. Our Buffalo Deviled Eggs are a festive way to celebrate the big game—and they're great for any low-carb dieters.

Massachusetts

We were pretty surprised that chicken wings only got top marks for two states. Our recipe for Buffalo Chicken Wings with Ranchy Cauliflower is a fun way to sneak in some veggies while enjoying all of your favorite game day flavors.

Nevada, New Hampshire and North Carolina

"Pigs in a Blanket" was the top-searched recipe for Nevada and North Carolina, while "chili dogs" topped the list for New Hampshire. Relieve your vegetarian friends—and leave your meat-eating ones pleasantly surprised—with our Carrot Dog Pigs in a Blanket or BBQ Carrot Dogs. Trust us on this one!

Oklahoma and Wisconsin

These states are looking for something substantial this Sunday—pulled pork or brisket. Our Pulled Pork with Caramelized Onions is an excellent choice for feeding a crowd this weekend. Plus, it's easy on you, as it spends most of the day hanging out in the slow-cooker.

Tennessee

Swedish meatballs are what Tennessee is dreaming of this game day weekend. Our Swedish Meatballs are ready within the hour but can be made ahead to prevent you from being stuck in the kitchen all day.
