Nothing goes better at a party than a cheese ball with crackers.
It is delicious, elegant, and easy to prepare. This pineapple cheese ball recipe is the perfect cheese ball because it is slightly sweet with a little “hm” what is that mixed in.
It is so yummy it will become a favorite with kids and parents alike.
The Best Cheese Ball Recipe
In a bowl mix 2 blocks of cream cheese.
Chop up 1/2 pepper (any color) and add to the cream cheese.
Add 1/2 cup crushed pineapple with the extra liquid squeezed out.
Add 1 Tablespoon finely chopped onion. (Don’t skip this, it contrasts with the sweet pineapple beautifully)
Sprinkle lightly with salt and mix all the ingredients in the mixer (or by hand) until well blended. Chill.
Hint: Chilling not only makes it easier to shape and coat with walnuts, but it also allows the flavors to blend. I like to allow at least 2 hours, but overnight works too!
Using your hands, shape the cheese mixture into a ball and roll in walnut pieces. Place on cheese platter and serve with your favorite crackers. I like Sociables best!
