I made these exactly as written using the 1/2 tsp of thyme and they were good. I think if I were to make them again I would lean more towards the 1/4 tsp as I found the taste of the thyme overpowered the shrimp a bit. I used a medium cheddar and would probably use a sharper cheddar to give it a little more of a cheese flavor.

Everyone always asks us to make or bring this appetizer. It is everyone's favorite, even our neighbor who doesn't like shrimp!

We added 3 or 4 slices of Kalamata and green olive after baking. Next time we may add chopped olives with the crab mixture before baking.
