Bestest Cheese Ball Ever!
OMG! This is the very best cheese ball I've ever had. I was looking for something tropical for my Bigelow Tea Life of Pi Oscars Party and this recipe from Just a Pinch fit the bill. :)
The mixture of cheese, pineapple, apricots and candied ginger were absolutely perfect on crackers. The next morning it was a huge hit with scrambled eggs wrapped up in a tortilla. Major yum!
Party Time Tropical Cheese Ball
1 package cream cheese, soft
1 (18.25 oz.) crushed pineapple, drained
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup dried apricots, chopped
1/2 cup crystallized ginger, chopped
Combine cream cheese and pineapple in a medium bowl, mix well. Add everything else but the coconut and mix well.
Empty the ingredients onto a large sheet of plastic wrap, roll into a ball and seal. Refrigerate until firm. Unwrap and roll in coconut. Serve with crackers or with hot scrambled eggs and a tortilla. :)
