Use in blends or when you want a more even flavor distribution. Thyme leaves can create flavor explosions.
Because Thyme is fairly robust use just a pinch or two so that you don't overpower your dish - you can always add more to perfect the desired taste.
Pairs well with allspice, chili powder, garlic, nutmeg, oregano and paprika.
Great with egg and cheese dishes (like quiche, frittatas, and omelets), cabbage, chicken, lamb, potatoes, sauces, soups, stews, stocks, tomatoes, leeks and legumes.
