The Best Pineapple Cheese Ball

pineapplecheeseball

In my attempt to come up with a Holiday recipe in the form of a snack a pineapple cheese ball came to mind. So, I went out, bought the supplies, made it, and the outcome was simply superb. Made with a combination of Philadelphia cream cheese, pineapple, red bell peppers, onions, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, and salt, the outcome is simply to die for. Roll this in some crushed pecans or walnuts, place some crackers around the side and your friends and family will simply love it. As a matter of fact, it got to the point where I make this up every Christmas or special occasion.

As always, you can alter the ingredients according to your liking. For example, a few drops of Tabasco sauce, just for some heat, would not be out of place. In my opinion, pepper does not seem to fit the bill but it’s entirely up to you. I like the fresh pecans, but you can use walnuts or even peanuts for that matter.

There are, however, a few simple suggestions to make the recipe easier to execute. In example, ensure that the cream cheese is it room temperature. That way, the dish is much easier to put together. Also make sure that the pineapple is well drained. I always use crushed pineapple in the can, but you could use pineapple tidbits or even whole pineapple rings and cut them up. It’s simply a matter of personal preference.

Give our pineapple cheese ball at try and, as always, let us know what you think.
