2 (8 ounce) packages
1 (8 ounce) can
crushed pineapple, drained
chopped green bell pepper
This is a great recipe. I recently made this for a party and everyone loved it. To make sure it is not runny, after you drain the crushed pineapple pat it with some paper toweling to remove the moisture. It really makes a difference and makes it easier to handle when you roll it in the nuts.
The mixture was runny and didn't hold together well making it difficult for kids to get it on the crackers. Think this was due to the juice leaking out of the pineapple. Next time I make it I will squeeze as much juice out of the pineapple as possible. My husband loves it!
I've made this cheese ball for the holidays for many years. My family loves it. I put ALL the nuts in the recipe and don't even bother to make a ball out of it. It's wonderful as a spread. We have named the "The Best Cheeseball Ever." Your family will love it.
Very good. I drained the pineapple until there was almost not liquid left and it held together no problem. Though I didn't have one, a cheese cloth would be useful to drain the pineapple. I will definitely use one when I make this again.
Oh my goodness! This is a wonderful recipe. I made it for a Christmas open house and it was gone in a matter of an hour...I'm planning to make another one soon just because. I was wary of mixing pineapple with green peppers but the results are just too good.
This recipe was easy to make and my guests were surprised that I made it myself.
Everyone loved it. I made it for Christmas and the whole family asked me to make it again.
Its basic and not to strong for kids to like.
I have had this cheese ball before. You have got to try it. It's sure to be a big hit at holiday gatherings. I made it for several different occasions and folks couln't stop eating it! Give it a try!
