Popular in many European cuisines, thyme features a strong, fresh, lemony flavor. Thyme is a fairly robust seasoning and can quickly overpower your dish. Popular in eggs, cheese dishes (like quiche, frittatas, and omelets), cabbage, potatoes, tomatoes, leeks and legumes. 

Thyme works well with allspice, chili powder, garlic, nutmeg, oregano and paprika.
