Super-Easy Pineapple Cheese Balls
There are so many recipes for cheese balls floating around. This one is perhaps the easiest; perfect for the non-cook to make.
INGREDIENTS | YIELDS 48 BALLS
- 1 (8-ounce) can crushed pineapple, drained
- 2 cups grated sharp Cheddar cheese
- ⅓ cup mayonnaise
- 2 cups finely chopped pecans
- ⅓ cup finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
Drain pineapple very well, pushing on the fruit to extract the juice.
In medium bowl, combine pineapple with the cheese and mix well. Stir in mayonnaise until well mixed.
Form into small balls about ¾ inch in diameter. Combine pecans with parsley and spread half on a plate.
Roll half of the balls in the pecan mixture and set on waxed paper. Repeat with remaining pecan mixture and remaining cheese mixture.
Cover and chill for 3– 4 hours before serving.
