I saw Emeril make some "fricos" today; a "cracker" that is actually baked Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese.

I baked mine on non-stick cooking foil instead of pie plates like he recommended, and they cooked perfectly. The first batch I noticed was really crumbly, so I added a tiny shake of flour like the recipe below calls for. I couldn't taste the difference, and the "crackers" didn't crumble. I cooked mine flat. I then made a spread using goat cheese following this recipe:

I really, really liked it, but my husband didn't; he doesn't like goat cheese and felt the taste was too "sour". I am trying to find a good substitute for goat cheese now. We are going to a party next weekend, with over 100 guests, and I want to bring this recipe. (yes, I will be making a lot!!) I guess I need to use a good spreadable cheese, but one still firm enough so that I can layer the "crackers" and toppings in a large container for transportation. A too-soft cheese topping would stick to the wax paper. My dh suggested bringing cans of cheeze whip instead. LOL, he was joking!
Any ideas? Or is this too big a project, and you have another appetizer suggestion?
