Stuffed Pattypans

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.

Serves 4

10 pattypans
1/3 cup breadcrumbs
1 tsp chopped fresh thyme, plus a few extra sprigs to garnish.
salt to taste
3 tbsp grated parmesan cheese

1. Heat oven to 180C
2. Steam pattypans until just tender. Cut off stem ends & carefully scoop out a bit of the inside flesh. Discard the insides or keep for another use.
3. Mix together the breadcrumbs, cheese, salt & thyme and spoon into the pattypan shells.
4. Place on a baking tray and bake for about 10 minutes.
5. Serve hot, garnished with thyme sprigs
