Conversion of dried oregano vs fresh

juliejulez Apr 11, 2013 06:48 PM

So, I'm making chicken meatballs TONIGHT, and realized I don't have any dried oregano. I do have fresh, or I have dried italian seasoning. If I were to use the fresh, how much should I use? Or should I just use the italian seasoning?

Here is the recipe, it calls for 1tsp dried oregano: http://www.thekitchn.com/recipe-chick...

    Sorry to reply after the fact. For future reference, the rule of thumb is three tsp fresh to one tsp dried oregano.

    I'm sure the Italian seasoning made for a good substitute as well. I use it a lot and I really Iike the blend of herbs.

      Never mind. Ended up throwing in the italian seasoning and hoping for the best :)
