Jeanne's Story

Another variation of a cheese ball that is great for holidays and parties. I usually like to make a few different flavors of cheese balls for variety. This picture from shows what it should look like.


(8 oz each) packages cream cheese, softened
(8 oz) crushed pineapple, drained
1/4 c
finely chopped bell pepper (red, green or combination)
3 Tbsp
finely chopped green onion
2 tsp
seasoned salt, or to taste
2 c
chopped pecans, divided

Directions Step-By-Step

Combine cream cheese, drained crushed pineapple, chopped bell pepper, chopped green onion, seasoned salt, and 1 cup chopped pecans.
Line a small mixing bowl with plastic wrap; pour mixture into the plastic lined bowl. Bring the excess plastic wrap up over the mixture and press so it will be flat and level. When set, remove from bowl and remove plastic wrap.
Just before serving roll pineapple cheese ball in remaining cup of pecans. Place cheese mound, flat side down, on your serving dish and surround it with assorted veggies and crackers.
