Pineapple Cheese Ball

When time is at a premium, this easy-to-make pineapple-cheese ball recipe is a perfect option. If by some chance there are leftovers, just reshape it, wrap it tightly in plastic wrap, and refrigerate it until you’re ready to serve it again.

Yield: 10 to 12 servings


  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 8 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 can (8-1/2 ounces) crushed pineapple, drained well
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped green bell pepper
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 2 cups chopped walnuts


In a food processor or by hand with a fork, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Mix in the pineapple, green pepper, and onion. Reserve 1 cup of the nuts and mix in the remaining 1 cup of nuts. Shape the mixture into a ball, roll it in the reserved nuts, and refrigerate until well chilled. Serve with crackers.

Additional Notes:

We prefer to use both cream cheese and shredded cheddar cheese, but you may use all cream cheese if you like.

  • I usually roll it in bacon bits instead of nuts. Catalina dressing drizzled over it is awesome too

  • I would love to hear reviews from people who have actually made and served this to others. I would love to try it so I would truly like to hear the pros/cons of this recipe from ones who have made it. It sounds delicious!
    Thank you!
