People tend to categorize foods by primary ingredients, regions, flavor profiles, mealtimes, menu sections, preparation, holidays and events, etc.

However, sometimes it’s fun to categorize foods simply by their similar names. These names may be similar in sound, but in this case, we’re discussing foods that are similar in terms of initial letters.

So, if you are interested in foods that start with Th, this is the article for you. I’ll share a description of each food that discusses what it is, what I like about it, what it goes well with, and the best times to eat it.

Foods That Start With Th

Here are some of the best foods that start with Th.


Thousand Island Dressing

Thousand Island Dressing is a type of salad dressing popular in the United States.

It is made with various ingredients, including mayonnaise, ketchup, relish, and other seasonings.

I like Thousand Island Dressing because it is creamy, flavorful, and versatile. It goes well with salads, of course.

But it also goes swimmingly with burgers, fries, and chicken wings. Ultimately, it can ramp up any savory dish and take it to the next level.

The best time to eat Thousand Island Dressing is at lunch and dinner. It’s also great to include on your party list because it is a crowd pleaser.


Three Bean Salad

Three Bean Salad is a type of salad that is made with, you guessed it, three different types of beans.

The most common beans in this dish are green beans, kidney beans, and wax beans.

I like Three Bean Salad because it is healthy, filling, and has a great texture. The beans are soft but have a bit of bite to them, and the dressing is usually a vinegar-based one that is light but flavorful.

Three Bean Salad goes well with grilled meats as a side dish to the main course. Three Bean Salad is also an excellent dish for potlucks and picnics.


Thumbprint Cookies

Thumbprint Cookies are a type of cookie made by pressing your thumb (or another finger) into the center of the dough to create an indentation.

This indentation is filled with jelly, frosting, or another filling.

I enjoy eating Thumbprint Cookies because they are bite-sized, cute, and customizable.

You can change up the cookie’s flavor by using different types of dough, fillings, and toppings.

They make for a great dessert or snack and can be enjoyed any time of day in my book!

Thumbprint cookies also make festive holiday cookies since you can fill them with holiday-themed toppings.


Thyme

Thyme is an herb many people use in cooking. Thyme has a very distinct flavor that is earthy, lemony, and a little bit minty.

Thyme is used in savory dishes, such as soups, stews, sauces, and meat dishes.

I like to use thyme in my cooking because it adds a lot of flavor without being overwhelming.

Thyme is also a very versatile herb that goes well with many different dishes.

Thyme is best used as a seasoning, so you can add it to food at any time of the day or any season.

However, I appreciate it the most in fall and winter dishes, when its earthy flavor can shine.


Thuringian Dumplings

Thuringian dumplings are German dumplings made with potato dough and usually filled with meat.

They are popular in the German state of Thuringia, hence their name.

I love Thuringian dumplings because they are hearty, filling, and satisfying. The potato dough is smooth and soft, and the meat filling is usually flavorful and juicy.

They make for a great winter meal, especially when served with gravy or sauerkraut. Thuringian dumplings can also be enjoyed as a snack or appetizer.


Thimbu

Thimbu is the capital of Bhutan, a South Asian country. It is also the name of a delicious South and Southeast Asian noodle dish made with rice noodles, vegetables, and various seasonings.

The dish also spelled Thimphu, is popular in Bhutan, as well as in neighboring countries like Nepal and India, as well as in Southeast Asian countries like Thailand.

It is another filling, hearty dish that is perfect for a winter meal—there seems to be a lot of filling, hearty dishes when it comes to foods that start with Th!

I love how spicy Thimbu is because I love it when food can clear my air passages and taste delicious all at once.


Thosai

Thosai is another spelling for dosa, a South Indian pancake made with fermented rice and lentils.

People usually serve Thosai with chutney, sambar, or other accompaniments. It is also common to eat this alongside vegetarian dishes in particular.

I love Thosai because it is savory, uniquely textured, and can be made very quickly. The fermentation process gives the pancake a slightly sour flavor, which I find very addictive.

I usually eat thosai for breakfast or lunch, but you can also eat it as a snack. Thosai is best served fresh and hot, so it is best to eat it soon as it’s ready!


Thimbleberry

Thimbleberry is a type of fruit that resembles a raspberry, but it is more closely related to the blackberry.

Thimbleberries are native to North America, and they are often found in the wild.

I love thimbleberries because they are incredibly sweet and fragrant. They make for a delicious pie or jam, and you can also eat them fresh.

I like to eat thimbleberries in the summertime, when they are ripe and in season. I enjoy them when they’re fresh the most, so try to eat them as soon after picking them as possible!

I also enjoy putting them in smoothies, similar to how you might put blackberries, raspberries, or blueberries in a smoothie. They taste delicious mixed with bananas and yogurt.


Thin Mints

Thin mints are undoubtedly my favorite Girl Scout cookie by far! They are crisp, minty, and chocolatey all at once.

I love Thin Mints because they are the perfect combination of sweet and minty. The chocolate is also a nice touch because it helps to balance out the mint flavor.

I usually eat Thin Mints as a dessert, after dinner or lunch. However, they make for a great snack as well. I also like to have them with a cup of tea or coffee.

If you haven’t tried Thin Mints before, I highly recommend them! They are indeed a delicious treat.


Thoshky

Thoshky is a traditional Czech bread dumpling that people typically fill with cheese or fruit.

Traditionally, the fruit people use are plums, but you can use whichever similar fruit you like, such as apricots, cherries, or even apples.

I love thoshky because it is a savory dish that goes well with gravy, and the boiling process makes the dough very fluffy and light.

I usually eat thoshky as a side dish, but it can also be eaten as a snack or even a main meal if you make enough of it and combine it with a roast or a stew.


Thermador

Thermador, or Thermidor, is a style of cooking lobster that entails removing the lobster meat from the shell and then mixing it with a creamy sauce made with mayonnaise, mustard, and cheese.

The mixture is then baked back into the shell until golden brown.

I love Thermador because it is a rich, decadent dish perfect for a special occasion. The lobster meat is exceptionally flavorful, and the sauce is creamy and delicious.

I usually eat Thermador as the main course, but it would also make for a great appetizer or side dish. It is best served fresh and hot.


Thin Crust Pizza

Thin crust pizza is my favorite type of pizza! It is light and crispy and doesn’t weigh you down like some thicker crusts.

I love thin-crust pizza because it is easy to eat and doesn’t fill me up too much.

I also like that you can load it up with toppings, and it doesn’t get too soggy. My favorite toppings on a thin crust pizza include:

  • jalapeños
  • pepperoni
  • bell peppers
  • artichokes
  • olives

I usually eat thin-crust pizza for dinner, and I especially enjoy them at parties or events because they are so easy to share.

Plus, I love pretty much any food I can eat with my hands because it adds an extra level of convenience and casualness.


Thuringian Sausage

Thuringian sausage is a type of German sausage that is made with pork, beef, or veal.

It is seasoned with salt, pepper, and garlic, and it is then smoked over beechwood.

I love Thuringian sausage because it is incredibly flavorful and versatile. This sausage can be eaten as is, or it can be used in a variety of dishes.

I usually eat Thuringian sausage as the main course, but it would also make for a great appetizer or side dish, even breakfast.

But no matter what time of the day you eat them, you’d be remiss not to have them alongside mashed potatoes and sauerkraut.

The salty, savory flavor of sausage goes so well with the creaminess, buttery goodness of mashed potatoes, and sourness of sauerkraut.
