Family Reunion Cheeseball
What a goofy name for a cheeseball, right!?
But a family reunion was where I had this amazing cheeseball.
My Mom's cousin brought it, and I swear to you I had to leave the room because I was about to eat the whole dang thing! I'm not kidding you!
Where I live I can not find this seasoning in the store, so I ordered it online. I mean that is how bad I had to make it, heck yes I will pay shipping and handling!
Cheeseballs are really one of my favorite appetizers, you can make them so many different ways and they are easy to bring to any get together!
What you need:
2 8oz cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup, chopped green pepper
2 green onions, chopped
8oz crushed pineapple, drained
1 Tablespoon Alpine Touch Seasoning
1 cup chopped pecans, toasted
How to make it:
Hopefully you bought chopped pecans if not, chop away!
Now you're going to want to toast them, you can toast nuts several ways, in the oven, microwave or cook top.
I used the cooktop, basically just warm them up, takes a few minutes. Set the nuts aside on a plate.
Soften your cream cheese.
Once softened add in the rest of the ingredients, mixing them well.
Form into a ball shape with your hands, yup gonna get messy!
Now roll that ball of joy into the nuts, wrap in plastic wrap and pop into fridge to chill or until ready to serve!
Speaking of serving, serve this with your favorite crackers!
Hope you love this family reunion cheeseball!
