What a delightful little appetizer! Found this in my search for yellow food (I planned an entire 3 course meal based around yellow foods - great fun!). It's surprisingly flavourful and the contrast between the crispy filling and the buttery soft pattypans is amazing. Don't be tempted to leave out the thyme - it adds a nice boost to the pattypans.
