Holiday Cheese Ball

Holiday Cheese Ball

This Thanksgiving recipe comes from
2 8-oz. packages cream cheese, softened (you can use light cream cheese)
2 c. (8 oz.) shredded sharp cheddar cheese
3 Tbsp. finely chopped green onions
1/4 c. finely chopped bell pepper (any color; I used red and orange mini peppers because I like the color)
2 tsp. seasoning salt
1 small can crushed pineapple, drained very well (you may want to press in a fine-mesh strainer)
1/2 c. pecan pieces, chopped (you can also use pecan “chips”)

In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients except pecans. Mix well. No matter how good my intentions, I always end up mixing it with my hands sooner or later. When thoroughly mixed, shape into a ball and roll in crushed pecans. Chill thoroughly. Serve with crackers and/or vegetables.
