Getting through security has always been one of the biggest hassles when it comes to air travel, and with the growing list of banned items it can be hard to guess what exactly is allowed on the plane. But thanks to Chrissy Teigen we now know scalloped potatoes are good to go. In a moment of panic before a flight, Teigen realized the casserole dish full of scalloped potatoes she intended to carry on might not be allowed, so she sent out an urgent tweet looking for guidance.
Teigen got her answer and a whole lot more.
If I don’t have a carry-on, can I bring a large ceramic casserole dish of scalloped potatoes on the plane? I am not kidding, is this okay? Is it too blunt/heavy an object? I’ll cry if they throw it away— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) February 24, 2018
Fans began posting suggestions as to how she could sneak it on board:
You can disguise it as a baby like in that episode of I Love Lucy— Bill Black (@williamrblack) February 24, 2018
Fortunately, the official TSA Twitter account responded and gave Chrissy the nod:
That's a good question, Christine! Scalloped potatoes are allowed in carry-on and checked bags. You can place them in a ceramic casserole dish. We hope you enjoy!— AskTSA (@AskTSA) February 24, 2018
Apparently you can bring a full Thanksgiving feast on board:
I watched someone bring a cooked turkey and two pies on a plane on thanksgiving so I think you’re good— morgan (@m_corbetta) February 24, 2018
I know someone who used to fly with full pans of lasagna but stopped after finding out that lots of TSA agents apparently consider lasagna to be a liquid.— Glamazon Bitch (@WellActuary) February 24, 2018
when i was 5mos pregnant i took a 5lb block of Tillamook cheese on my flight from PDX to Ft Worth/Dallas. not a casserole but still a large piece of food. i think they knew not to mess w/a pregnant lady's food. smart.— Elisa (@ElisaWilding) February 24, 2018
I've brought a tub of cookie dough on a plane once without issue.— Casey (@nfinitegladness) February 24, 2018
After all the talk about food, one Twitter user got an idea:
Does this mean that potluck flights are going to be a thing?! I have mixed feelings but am intrigued.— Diana Fox (@Diana522) February 25, 2018
