This is an AMAZING appetizer for a party. I use a spring form pan so that it is easier to serve, but it is wonderful with crackers and looks beautiful on a serving table for a large gathering. My family prefers when I reserve some for them so that they can put it on rolls or biscuits for lunch the following day. It's great!
