My friends and I got together recently and had a retro themed dinner party!  It was lots of fun…we ate mashed potatoes and meatloaf, pigs in a blanket, stuffed celery, etc.  You get the picture. I brought a cheeseball because you can’t have a retro party without a cheeseball.  I like this version with the pineapple.  I’m thinking it would be delicous on a bagel!

pineapple cheeseball

16 ounces cream cheese, softened
8 ounces crushed pineapple, drained
4 tablespoons green pepper, chopped
2 tablespoons green onion, chopped
1 teaspoon seasoning salt
1 cup pecans or walnuts, chopped

Mix all ingredients together. Form into balls or fill ramekins and chill. Alternately, you can mix all ingredients together except for the nuts.  Form cheese mixture in a ball and roll in the chopped nuts.
