Ingredients

  1. 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  2. 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  3. 1/2 cup cooked bacon, crumbled
  4. 1/4 cup diced pineapple (fresh or canned)
  5. 2-3 tablespoons diced jalapeños (adjust to taste)
  6. 2 green onions, finely chopped
  7. 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  8. 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  9. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  10. 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  11. 1 cup chopped pecans or crispy fried onions (for coating)

 

Instructions

  • The cream cheese that has been softened, the shredded sharp cheddar cheese, the crumbled bacon, the diced pineapple, the diced jalapeños, the chopped green onions, the garlic powder, the smoked paprika, the salt, and the black pepper should be mixed together in a large mixing bowl.
  • Perform a thorough mixing until all of the components are evenly distributed.

  • Once the ingredients have been thoroughly mixed together, use your hands to form the mixture into a ball.
  • If you find that the mixture is too soft to shape, you can put it in the refrigerator for half an hour to allow it to slightly firm up.

 

  • After it has been formed into a ball, thoroughly wrap it in plastic wrap and place it in the refrigerator for at least one hour, or until it becomes firm.
  • As the cheese ball is chilling, you can get started on preparing the coating. A plate or a shallow dish should be used to organise the chopped pecans or the crispy fried onions.

  • The cheese ball should be removed from the refrigerator and unwrapped from the plastic wrap once it has reached the desired consistency.
  • The cheese ball should be coated evenly on all sides with the chopped pecans or crispy fried onions before being rolled in the mixture.

 

  • Once the cheese ball has been coated, it should be transferred to a serving platter. If desired, additional diced jalapeños, bacon crumbles, and pineapple chunks can be added as garnishes.
  • The bacon jalapeño pineapple cheese ball can be served with your preferred crackers, breadsticks, or sliced vegetables for dipping purposes.

Can you freeze this dish 

Indeed! Planning ahead for the holidays or other occasions is made much simpler as a result of this. In order to get it ready for the freezer, you must first make the cheese ball, then wrap it tightly in plastic wrap, and finally place it in a bag that is safe for the freezer. Keep the coating in a separate location. Wait a few hours before serving to allow the frozen food to thaw in the refrigerator.
