101 Days of Christmas: Savory Cheese Ball

Savory Cheese Ball

This is one of my baby sister’s absolute favorite foods, and so it always makes an appearance at holidays and family get-togethers.

Cheese balls are actually a really easy party appetizer because they can be made a day or two in advance and don’t require any special presentation. Serve this savory cheese ball with whole grain or butter crackers, table wafers or even pretzels!


  • 2 packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1 8-ounce can crushed pineapple, drained well
  • 2 cups pecans, chopped
  • 1/4 cup green pepper, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon seasoned salt


Beat cream cheese until smooth, and then stir in the pineapple and 1 cup pecans. Add green pepper, onion, and seasoned salt.

Form into a ball and coat with remaining 1 cup Pecans. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill for several hours in the refrigerator before serving.
