Pecan Apple Cheese Ball - Fresh On The Menu Recipe
  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1 ¼ cups shredded extra-sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1 Certified SC Grown apple
  • 1 scallion, white and green parts separated, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup Certified SC Grown pecans, toasted and finely chopped

  1. In a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese, Cheddar, apple, scallion whites, and salt.
  2. Coat a large piece of plastic wrap with cooking spray. Dump the cheese onto the plastic wrap and form into a ball then completely wrap and refrigerate for at least an hour.
  3. In a small pan over medium heat, toast the pecans, stirring occasionally to prevent burning, about 5 minutes. Cool.
  4. Combine the pecans and scallion greens on a plate and roll the cheeseball around covering it completely. Press pecans to adhere to the ball.
