Holiday Cheese Ball

Holiday Cheese Ball

Makes 2 

-( 2)  8 oz pkgs. of cream cheese, softened to room temperature

-1 C crushed pineapple, drained well

-¼  C chopped green pepper (I love using a mixture of green, red and orange)

-1 TBS chopped onion (optional)

-1/2 tsp seasoned salt 

-1 C chopped  pecans (or you can use your favorite chopped nut)

Mix all ingredients together except for nuts. Take a piece of plastic wrap and spread out 1/4 C of the chopped pecans. Place half of cream cheese mixture on top of pecans and sprinkle with another 1/4 C. of chopped pecans. Form into a ball and roll until the outside of the cheese ball is covered in pecans. Repeat this process for the other cheese ball. Cover the cheese ball with plastic wrap and store in refrigerator until ready to serve.

Serve with Wheat Thins, Ritz, Townhouse or Club crackers. Enjoy and Happy Baking!
