This easy self serve appetizer is delicious. Thick, creamy, salty, sweet and crunchy. Talk about fun textures and flavors that will make your mouth say wow! Why not a cheese BALL? Simple, a ball rolls all around the platter - a log stays in place. Much easier to self serve.
Pineapple Walnut Cheese Log
2 pkg cream cheese (room temperature)
1 (8 oz) can crushed pineapple (drained)
1 c. finely chopped walnuts
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. paprika
1 c. chopped walnuts - to coat the cheese log before serving
Combine all ingredients in a bowl (except reserved walnuts) and mix until well combined. Cover and refrigerate over night.
The next day....form the cheese log with your hands and place reserved 1 c. chopped walnuts over all. Place on your platter and serve with bread or crackers.
