Gav's face just cracks me up! Love that boy.
I'm not much of a chef, so trust me, these recipes are EASY. And they are GOOD. Like so good that people will hunt you down and stalk you for the recipes. I'm going to make you famous.
Best Cheese Ball / Dip / Pecan Spread of Heaven
(I made this name up. Clearly. Perfect for Christmas Eve or New Year's Eve)
It is so good that once you start eating it you simply cannot stop. I witnessed about 30 people going wild over it the first time I had it. Since then it always gets the same reaction. People cannot stop eating it. I guarantee if you make this it will be loved and devoured immediately. Describing it as addictive is an understatement. The ingredients look kind of crazy, but when put together is is pure heaven:
- 16 oz cream cheese
- 2 tbsp chopped green onion
- 2 tbsp chopped green pepper
- ¼ c drained, crushed pineapple
- 2 tsp seasoned salt (I recommend Lawry's if you have it)
- 2 c chopped pecans
Soften cream cheese. Add onion, pepper, pineapple, seasoned salt, and one cup pecans. Mix well. Shape into ball and roll in remaining pecans. Chill several hours. Serve with crackers.
(*TIP- DO NOT EAT IMMEDIATELY. Like all good things, this one is worth the wait. I suggest at least 4 hrs, but overnight or even the next day is the best) Originally Posted 12/29/09
