Mother’s Day brunch? For Pa. moms, it’s sausage all the way

If you’re craving sausage this Mother’s Day, you’re not alone.

Research suggests sausage is the brunch preference of moms across the commonwealth – and in 12 other states.

Which means bacon is toast. Moms in only eight states prefer bacon to sausage, and except for Delaware they are a long way west of southcentral Pennsylvania.

The heavy lifting for this research was carried out by Zippia, a company that helps job seekers with career advice, and does a lot of rankings, too – from best companies to work for to, in this case, brunch.

Using Google Trends, Zippia determined what brunch food each state eats a disproportionate amount of. It defined brunch foods as common breakfast foods and drinks, and looked at both search volume and prominence on menus. From there, it determined what food is searched for disproportionately often in each state.

For example, while Wyoming eats all the brunch foods the rest of the country does, the search interest in “biscuits and gravy” is disproportionately higher than the remaining states, making “biscuits and gravy” more popular in Wyoming than anywhere else.

The scariest finding? Moms in New York get oatmeal for Mother’s Day.
