Too Much Thyme & Sage???

Canthespam | Nov 17, 2012 11:23 AM

I am going to use Ina Garten's recipe for roasted herbed turkey breast - I made it a few years ago and it was excellent. It uses thyme and sage, garlic, dry mustard, EVOO under and on top of the skin. I made it two years ago and it was excellent. I am only cooking for two, plus leftovers, I halved the recipe and cooked for about an hour and 40-45 minutes. It is basically a 'set and forget' recipe - no basting. Moist, flavorful and delicious.


I want to make a fairly easy stuffing (separately) and I am thinking of the Chow recipe for Easy Apple and Sage Stuffing (also includes thyme).

Having never tasted the stuffing, I am wondering if between the sage and thyme in the turkey and also in the stuffing, if the flavors would be too similar and maybe overpowering??

Any recommendations for easy, delicious stuffings?

Thanks in advance.
