Google’s Most Searched Recipes, Chefs and Diets of 2016

Updated

Google’s top searches from the year are out and when it comes to food, the world wanted comfort, comfort and more comfort.

The most requested recipe of 2016 was green bean casserole followed by Brussels sprouts, hashbrown casserole, guacamole and chicken marsala. A few sweets also made the list with hungry people searching for buttercream frosting and snow cream (ice cream made from snow, apparently).

A stressful year clearly meant the world was stress-eating which of course eventually leads to dieting. The GOLO Diet — which claims to optimize the body’s insulin levels — topped the list. But a diet claiming you can eat tacos all day, every day came in second — so let’s not go about thinking we’re all that serious about weight loss.

The people also wanted to know about Budweiser, how to make sangria and how many calories are in a Big Mac (563, according to Google, if you’re curious). Read the complete lists of food trends below and check out Google’s Year in Search for the rest of this year’s hottest topics.
